Kindergarten-1st Grade Enrichment
In our K/1 Enrichment Class (Block time 10:30-3:30), students will participate in several unit studies throughout the year that will engage them in learning both important skills and content. Each unit will have a unique theme verse, art projects, science experiments, and several interactive learning experiences. Learning activities will be differentiated to challenge students of differing academic ability levels. Class parties and field trips are also a highlight for this age group. K/1 Students also spend 45 minutes each Monday in a unique gym class designed to develop gross motor skills and introduce them to basic games and sports. This class is meant to complement what is being done at home. Curricula for phonics/reading, math, and handwriting are recommended to round out grade-level learning. Capacity is 20 students.
Prerequisites: Students must be able to follow three-step directions, be independent in self-care activities such as using the restroom and eating lunch, have an attention span of 10 minutes, be able to write their own name, and have exposure to phonics instruction. Students should be kindergarten-ready and turn 5 by September 1st.
Loop Schedule: Content units run on a two-year loop
Year A (2024/2025, 2026/2027): Habitats, States of Matter, Spring Sensations, Types of Energy, Dinosaurs, Extreme Earth, Elements of Art
