1st & 2nd Grade Curriculum

Bible

Our Bible class is designed to help students develop their own personal relationship with God as they learn how He led in the lives of Bible heroes.  As we learn about these heroes, we discuss ways to live our lives to be more like Jesus and treat others the way we want to be treated, so we can become productive citizens in an ever changing world.

Math

The students use a new math curriculum called “Go Math!”  This program is designed to cover the Common Core Standards and teaches math in a “hands on” approach with manipulatives for each student. The use of manipulatives provides a way for children to learn concepts in a developmentally appropriate way.

Language

Our language arts program, Pathways, in conjunction with Common Core Learning Outcomes provides the opportunity for students to read trade books and learn things like plot, setting, and characters.  The students learn how to compare books to real life, and identify similarities and differences between themselves and people or events they read about in books.  We also study Modern Curriculum Phonics, which teaches the students phonemes, phonemic, and phonological awareness.

Science

Our new science program is By Design. It teaches many concepts including the way in which our bodies function, the solar system, and lifecycles in nature.  The students participate in a weekly Hands-on-Science class where they are able to experiment or make something related to that week’s topic.  In addition, the students will have a science journal about their learning. This series continues for 1st thru 8th grade.

Social Studies

During Social Studies class, we learn about neighborhoods and communities.  As the year progresses, we learn about our country, our continent, our world, and people throughout history who have brought about positive changes. In conjunctions with our reading series, we are able to develop our own skill set to enable us to be future leaders in our community.

Arts

We use the Arts Attack! video art program which teaches the students how to  become better artists. Students use many different art media, including pens, pencils, crayons, markers, paints, watercolors, colored pencils, crayon resist, and more.
