2021 Spring Course Descriptions
Kindergarten/1st Grade (Kathy Anderson)
We will be learning about the 50 Nifty United States. Looking at the 6 major regions and the states that make up each particular region. At the end of the semester we will have a Geography Fair that each student will be doing a presentation on a particular state that they have chosen. We also have several holidays that we will be celebrating in the spring such as: Ground Hog day, Valentines day, Presidents day, St. Patrick's day, Dr. Seuss birthday and Easter.
1st/2nd Grade (Gisella Likens)
This semester we are going to explore God’s wonderful world of insects! We will learn about creepy crawly bugs, how God designed them with unique features, and all about their life cycles. We will accomplish this through hands on activities, discussions, observations, science experiments and art projects. We will continue to focus on beginning writing skills, grammar and story elements. We will also spend time in God’s Word discussing how God created us all in His image using the book, One Blood for Kids by Ken Ham of Answers in Genesis. I look forward to an exciting time together!
3rd-12th Grade Rotation
Mapping Close to Home: a look at the United States and Colorado (Janelle McCusker)
3rd - 6th: We will be briefly exploring each state by region with a focus on Colorado geography and history.
7th and Up: We will dive into a more comprehensive look at Colorado geography and history. The kids can expect to do a research project on a historical event in Colorado or a famous Coloradan.
Creative Writing (Chris Smart)
We will continue to build upon the skills introduced during the fall semester. 3rd and 4th graders will compose key word outlines and reconstructed fables as well as some poetry and other stories. 5th and 6th graders will compose stories and be introduced to persuasive essays, and the older students will be working primarily on stories with some poetry for flavor.
Photography meets Science (Diann Holmes)
“Focus on Nature and How it Affects us Mind, Body and Soul”
Photography Meets Science is a multifaceted concept integrating science and photography thus creating a hands-on learning tool to study and experience the world around us.
In the Fall semester our lens was focused on the heavens, the sun, moon, seasons and clouds. In the spring semester we will turn our photography attention to the science of our planet earth. This will include rocks and minerals, weather, erosion and the water cycle.
At the start of the Spring Semester we will expand our tree studies to winter buds and evergreens and look into the behavior of bird migration, the water cycle and rocks and minerals.
Worldview and Why It Matters (Breezy Lewis)
What is a worldview? What is YOUR worldview? What is a Biblical worldview? Can you tell what someone else’s worldview is? How do we recognize the worldview that is being presented in everything we watch, read and listen to? How do we stay strong in a Biblical worldview while being loving and gentle with those around us who share very different views? These are all questions we will delve into this semester. I have been passionate about knowing what I believe and why from a young age, and I am so excited to discuss these important ideas with your children over the course of 12 weeks!
