Kindergarten and 1st Grade
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, and several interactive learning experiences. Learning activities will be differentiated to challenge students of differing academic ability levels. Class parties are also a highlight for this age group. K/1 Students also spend 1 hour 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 you are doing at home. Curriculum for phonics/reading, math, and handwriting are recommended to round out grade-level learning. Capacity is 20 students.
Prerequisites: Able to follow three-step directions, independent in self-care activities such as restroom and eating lunch, attention span of 10 minutes, writing own name, and ready or learning to read. Students should be kindergarten-ready and turn 5 by September 1st.
