Kindergarten Explorers is an exciting hands-on, play based class designed to enrich skills your child is learning at home.
Each week will focus on a theme and Bible scripture (some themes may continue two weeks in a row). Explorers will participate in hands-on experiments, dramatic play, sensory bins, crafts/projects, use of manipulatives (links, counters, magnatiles, etc), and games. A minimum of two stories will be read aloud each class and each week will have a literacy (alphabet, sight words, rhyming words, etc), math (counting up to 100, skip counting, more or less, measuring, shapes, colors, money, etc), science/ social science (asking if then questions, hands-on experiments, basic mapping skills, community roles, etc) components.
Explorers will be welcomed by a morning message each day and will practice greeting each other. Explorers will also practice basic skills, such as, sitting in a circle, taking turns, lining up, and following multi-step directions.
