Two and three year olds will learn social skills such as respect for property of others, obeying school rules, listening and following directions and playing well with others. They also learn language arts skills such as recognizing their name and upper case letters. Math skills will include learning to count to ten, identifying shapes and colors, recognizing differences (large or small; more or less, etc.) and using manipulatives, puzzles and positional words (over/under, in/out, up/down, etc.)
Four year olds will continue to learn social skills. They will also learn personal data such as full names, addresses, birthdays and telephone numbers. They will learn to print the alphabet, learn phonics (sounds) for each letter and match beginning sounds of words. They will begin with blend ladders (using letters together to make sounds) after Christmas break. Most 4K students will be reading simple books by the end of the year. In math, they will learn to count the number of objects and will work simple addition problems. They will also learn some sign language and Spanish words.
The five year olds will continue with phonics and reading but on a higher level. They will work on writing simple sentences that match pictures that they draw, as well. In math, kindergarten students will learn to count to 100, identify names and values of coins, patterns, place value, addition and subtraction, and measurement, along with basic review of previous skills. Science and social studies will be taught along with Bible verses and stories. Kindergarten students will meet all standards to begin first grade when they leave 5K.
