PRE/SCHOOL - KINDERGARTEN

This class will be lead with a Montessori approach. The children will have opportunities to refine practical life skills, work with sensorial materials, basic math & geography concepts as well as receiving instruction through the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd approach. Truly a life-giving class, suited to each child's needs and inspiring them to learn and grow deeper in their relationship with the Lord.

PRE/SCHOOL - KINDERGARTEN GYM

Tutor: Walther

Kids will enjoy warm-up, stretching, relays, songs and dance, parachute, and classic childhood games. Some sport skills may be taught (hitting a ball off a T, throwing a ball, kicking a ball, passing a basketball, etc.), although this will be dependent on the class's interest. Similar in structure to a library story time, but with some huffing and puffing too. A great opportunity for our smaller students to take turns and listen to simple directions.

 

Donations of a few balls appropriately sized for students would be greatly appreciated.

3RD-5TH GRADE GYM

Tutor: Garofola

Gym class for 3rd-5th grade will include an intro to a variety of sports along with other physical and fun games. Sports teach us life skills like learning and following rules, how to work as a team, and how to win and lose gracefully. Sprinkled into the year we will learn about health, fitness, and the physiology behind why these are essential not only to our body, but to our mind and spirit as well!

3RD-5TH GRADE SCIENCE

Tutor: Eschen

Behold and See 3 is intended to help children build a conceptual framework of scientific ideas and thinking.

 

A hands-on approach has been employed which allows children to do science rather than simply read about it. The unique layout of the lessons interweaves experiments and worksheets that take the student step by step through each concept.

 

Ten chapters in all: "What is Science?"; "Matter and Spirit"; "Force and Energy"; "The Sun, Moon, and Stars"; "Animals"; "Plants"; "Interdependence in God's Design"; "Many Parts, One Body"; "Senses"; "Nutrition and Health". Also includes a "Dictionary of Words to Learn"!
