Catechism: In 58 two-day lessons, our students dive deeply into Martin Luther’s Catechism. Their work also relates to the Bible stories they have studied previously. We use Faith and Foundations, The Basic Truths of the Bible.
Handwriting: Our students continue practicing cursive lettering with use of Zaner-Bloser worksheets and progress to using regular lined notebook paper.
Memory Work: From the Catechism curriculum, our students learn Bible passages and Catechism parts that correlate with each lesson. We also learn various hymns and songs to sing in church.
Literature: Our students focus on integrating the arts to make a connection with the reading content. We use a novel lesson books-based curriculum.
Western World Geography: Through the text, Social Studies Western World Geography, our students learn the material and engage in a variety of activities that allow students and teachers to choose the path that works best for them. We use a 2019 text published Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Publishing Company.
Spanish: Our students learn Spanish through Duolingo on their Chromebooks. They reinforce online lessons through flashcards and opportunities to speak Spanish throughout the day, including a “Spanish” day dedicated to mostly speaking Spanish.
Spelling: Our students retain, internalize, and transfer valuable spelling knowledge for improved results in all areas of literacy in the classroom and beyond. We use Zaner-Bloser’s Spelling Connections 2012
Language Arts/Writing: In language arts, our students develop their skills in grammar and writing. We use the Shurley Method.
