2021 Fall Course Descriptions
Kindergarten/1st Grade (Kathy Anderson)
Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God....
We are going to take a look at creation, God's design and order for each day of creation.
As we started with creation, we will be taking a look at growth in the spring. The life cycle of plants from seeds. The life cycle of t a butterfly from a caterpillar egg. Finally, how we grow in our relationship with our creator.
1st/2nd Grade (Gisella Likens)
We will discover God’s love, care, and provision for us by exploring the 7 Days of Creation through the Bible and Earth science experiments. We will also learn about the elements of a story through traditional fairy tales and Aesop’s fables, beginning writing skills and grammar. We will enjoy creating art projects together related to topics we learn about. In the spring we will continue in God’s creation through astronomy.
3rd-8th Grade Rotation
Creative Writing (Chris Smart)
“Yuck, writing! It’s such a chore.”
Not here!! Using the IEW program as a base, students learn structure and style, broaden their vocabulary, and stretch their creative wings. They write about the wild and crazy as well as important “stuff.” Both eager and reluctant writers truly enjoy this class. Join us as we create colorful descriptions, persuasive essays, fantastic fables, and terrific tales; one never knows what we’ll do next! Bring your favorite pen or pencil AND your imagination as we explore the fabulous world of writing!
Photography meets Science (Diann Holmes)
This school year we will dip our toes into forensics sciences with our lens focused on the human body and behavioral analysis. We will study genetics and explore our unique qualities and features as an individual recognizing that we are "beautifully and wonderfully made" but then also draw similarities in human behavior. Jump aboard the mystery machine as we learn about fingerprints, DNA, eye contact, and body language to solve mysteries and figure out "who done it!" The photography assignments will be related to the science subjects taught in class in order to enhance the learning process.
Worldview and Why It Matters (Breezy Lewis)A worldview colors every aspect of every person’s life yet most people are unaware that they even have one. We will be learning about what a worldview is, how to recognize different Worldviews in what we read, watch and listen to. In the younger grades, the focus will be Biblical worldview. We evaluate what we believe, why we believe it, and how we can articulate and defend it as 1 Peter 3:15 encourages us to do with gentleness and respect. The older grades will learn the basics of other prevalent Wordlviews and how they differ from Biblical truth.
The Bible: How to Read It, What to Do With It, and Why it Matters
The Bible is really long, somewhat intimidating, and seemingly full of irrelevant
stories, strange places, and boring genealogies. Biblical illiteracy is at an all-time
high in our culture and only getting worse, including those who attend church
regularly. Yet, as believers in Jesus Christ, God’s Word is our greatest treasure and
plays a vital role in teaching us about who God is, who we are, and how we are to
live in this world in a way that prepares for the life to come. We will learn how to
enjoy reading the Bible, how to make sense of the stories, and how to allow it to
shape our everyday lives. In this course we will practice reading several books of
the Bible and discuss foundational concepts such as literary styles, character, and plot. The goal of the course is to equip students to approach God’s Word with confidence and learn how to enjoy reading it for themselves. Students will be able to begin seeing the themes of God’s grace, mercy, and wisdom through the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation.
