Kindergaten - 5th Grade

Third Grade


Biblical Choices for a New Generation presents four themes through the year.  First, lessons present the concepts of faith and obedience as displayed in the lives and choices of the men and women who reigned as Israelis judges.  Second, students realize that God is more concerned with our availability than He is with our ability.  Third, as we study the last week of Jesus’ ministry, each lesson brings the children closer to the great act of God on our behalf, the atoning death of Jesus Christ.  Students are given the opportunity to respond to Jesus’ amazing sacrifice. And last of all, the choice to carry out Jesus’ Great Commission is emphasized in the turn-around choices made by Peter, Stephen, and Paul.  

Students learn to express themselves completely and clearly when they communicate.  In the language program they learn to write in complete sentences and to express their thoughts in different ways.  They learn the parts of speech, dictionary skills, letter writing, sentence structure, and creative writing.
