In Kindergarten, students begin the process of reading and learning to love it, also enjoying beautiful literature read out loud to them. Through oral narration, they are learning to share their thoughts with clarity and expression. We memorize and recite poetry, scripture, and lots of jingles to help recall information. Kindergartners journey to each continent – learning about the rain forest when they study South America and “taking a backpacking trip” through Europe to learn about different countries and their historical landmarks. We also take nature walks to experience the outside world and the way it reflects God’s design and majesty.
Also a very important component of building character at this age, we practice relating to classmates with kindness and growing friendships, all day long keeping our eyes fixed on Jesus. Mrs. Duvall
