Kindergaten - 5th Grade

First Grade


The students have many opportunities on a daily basis to grow in their knowledge of Our Lord and Biblical truths.  Scripture memorization and singing songs with a Christian emphasis help to build a positive environment and install important lifelong values.  Every day the children hear a Bible story or a modern day story with spiritual truth.

First grade is an exciting year, where the foundations laid in kindergarten are broadened.  Students learn comprehension, story sequencing, main ideas, and the prediction of outcomes.  Daily practice of phonics helps to improve reading skills.  We directly and intentionally teach phonetic skills, which in turn supports comprehension.

First graders study the concepts of time and money along with basic addition and subtraction skills.  They learn number facts, computation, and problem solving strategies.

The children learn sentence structure, capitalization, punctuation, parts of speech and much more.  Students also practice writing sentences and paragraphs as they refine their penmanship.

Spelling is taught through phonics and sight words.  The weekly word lists support the reading program.

Science and Social Studies:
These subjects are hands-on and interactive.  They introduce a student to the world around them.  Units of study include the five senses, animals, weather, space, health, families, holidays, and presidents.
