PRESCHOOL (3-5):

Kids need to know that a big, big God loves them so, so much. To that end, this class is a resource for parents and a safe place for children that nurtures the spiritual, social, cognitive, and physical development of preschoolers. Preschool-aged children learn exceptionally well through play but also benefit greatly from structure. Each day in class there will be a regular routine that includes plenty of free play, physical play, and cooperative play, as well as group listening time, art, music, science, and a Bible lesson. Class size is limited to 8 students.


Instructor is Ash Walz.

KINDERGARTEN:

The Kindergarten class will take an imaginary journey around the world. Our destinations will be inspired by stories we read. Along the way we will learn some basic geography, "experience" different forms of transportation, and try out a variety of art techniques. Our primary curriculum will be Five in a Row, but other great books will also be used. Class is limited to 10 students.


Instructor is Wendy Walker.


ELEMENTARY:
(Students must enroll in all three classes. Class sizes are limited to 15 students.)


ANIMALS BY DESIGN (SCIENCE):

“But ask the animals, and they will teach you,” ~ Job 12:7. What do the animals have to teach us…. that they were created by God. God shows His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature through what has been made (Romans 1:20). The animals declare God’s power. This year we will examine what God the Creator of the animals created on Day 5- sea creatures and Day 6-land creatures. We will examine the animal kingdom to see God’s fingerprints of design.


We will be doing several dissections this year: clam, fish, earthworm, and starfish. This year we will examine the animal kingdom with power point, dissections and activities. We will see how animals are truly designed. When we see a design there must be a designer and that designer is God.


Recommended but not required Exploring Creation with Zoology 2: Swimming creatures of the Fifth Day and Exploring Creation with Zoology 3: Land Animals of the Sixth Day www.apologia.com or www.christianbook.com OR God’s Design for life The Animal Kingdom by Debbie and Richard Lawrence (Answers in Genesis) OR books from the library. Classes can stand alone without the books.


Instructor is Julie Von Vett.



PHYSICAL EDUCATION:

The FEET Physical Education class will strive to help students learn and develop physical education skills through movement, fitness, light competition, and sport-specific skills. We will focus on how God created our bodies to work and be healthy and learn how to keep healthy choices and exercise throughout life.  


Instructor is Jordan Lubben.



ART:

Students will learn about art history and different techniques used over the years through the “Meet the Masters” art curriculum.  Students will learn about line value and crosshatching, color value and shading, positive and negative shapes, texturing and more. Each student will get a chance to create their own artwork using the different techniques of each of the artists we study using a variety of mediums. During our first class, in addition to an introduction to the course, each person will be creating a portfolio to hold their artwork for the year.

Instructor is Lindsy Paurus.

GRADES 7-9

(These classes may be appropriate for up to grade 10 depending on the situation. Please contact us for more information.)


Government:
Now more than ever before it's important for us to have a firm and strong understanding of how out government works, how bills are made, and influenced. In this class we will look at the basics of government at the local, state and federal level. We will explore how people are elected to what do political parties stand for. We will tie  it all together with examining what's going on in current events and how it relates to what we are learning in class. This class will have a little history review as to why the founding fathers designed our constitution the way it is.

Instructor is Amanda Craven.



Writing:
In this class we review the basics of writing. We practice daily skills, to more advanced essay writing techniques and styles. We will also look at the basics of research writing and what a worked cited is and in-text citations. The students will have multiple chances to expand, practice and grow their writing skills.
