Age 3All Aboard the Animal Train

All Aboard the Animal Train

All Aboard the Animal Train is our year-long hands-on learning adventure for three-year olds. This complete preschool program is flexible and simple to teach. You can begin any time of the year. You can do all the activities, or pick and choose the ones best for you. The 12 units provide 36 weeks of engaging learning—3 weeks per unit.

Hands-on learning couldn't be simpler! Easy-to-teach activities are all scheduled for you with almost no preparation. (Who has time to gather ribbon in 6 colors, cut out 50 little penguins, or plan new activities every day?) Children will learn about 12 animals (one in each unit) through finger plays, creative play, songs, and colorful animal cookie cutters.

Our program is also bursting with fabulous books, all scheduled for you, about each animal. We're excited about this fun, educational curriculum with biblical values and character development!

Each of the 12 three-week units focus on a character trait, a color, and an animal. For example, Unit 1 focuses on love (God loves us, so we love God and others), rabbits, and red.

In Unit 1 children will:

  • Hear Bible stories about God's love, sing a Bible song from the included CD, participate in simple character-developing activities, and create a unit poster (from the Student Sheets) to display during the unit.
  • Help make red play dough from scratch, enjoy trying red foods, and go on a red color hunt.
  • Pretend to be a rabbit, learn a rabbit finger play, listen to stories about rabbits, and make a rabbit-shaped sandwich with cookie cutters included in the Package.

Children will enjoy four different activities each day scheduled in the Teacher's Manual:

  1. Together Time — daily group activity.
  2. Story Time — books and poems from the package and a list of optional library books focusing on the 12 animals you will study.
  3. Surprise Time — five semi-independent activities; using resources from the package and other simple-to-gather items.
  4. Outside Time — unstructured outside play for exploration, health and large motor development.

The goals of our program are:

Spiritual Growth
  • God loves us, so we love God and others.
  • Twelve character traits - love, obedience, patience, kindness, sharing, thankfulness, politeness, friendliness, forgiveness, joy, truthfulness, doing your best
  • Three Bible stories and a memory verse for each character trait

Age 5God's Creation from A to Z

God's Creation from A to Z

This complete kindergarten curriculum contains all necessary subjects for a year-long hands-on learning adventure. The first two weeks focus on the Creation story from Genesis, followed by 26 hands-on, easy-to-teach thematic units (one letter each week) that focus on the wonders in God's creation. The sun, moon, rocks, vegetables, elephants, butterflies, and dinosaurs are just a few of the exciting topics you will explore.

Also included is a Christmas unit for December with Bible stories and activities as well as a unit on the Fruit of the Spirit, focusing on character (love, joy, peace, etc.) with cooking, science, and more.

Reading

This highly successful multi-sensory phonics approach makes teaching reading easy. Hands-on and workbook activities are combined to teach letter names, letter sounds (consonants and short vowels), sound blending, and correct handwriting. Students learn to read and write short vowel words. By mid-year they are reading very simple stories.

As part of our "learning to love to read" focus, in each unit children enjoy a children's literature book related to the theme as well as literacy extension activities.

Math

Our informal, integrated approach helps children easily learn foundational math concepts. In addition to the daily hands-on math routines and worksheets for each unit, many skills are woven into the lessons as students cut an apple in half, measure and compare the lengths of dinosaurs and whales, and order leaves by size. All typical kindergarten goals are taught, including counting objects, writing numerals, preparing and understanding charts and graphs, comparing, classifying, sequencing and understanding ordinal numbers, fractions (whole/half), clocks, money, and an introduction to addition and subtraction.

Bible, Science, Creative Thinking, Children's Literature, and Art

These subjects are integrated into the easy-to-teach thematic units. Each week focuses on one alphabet letter and one corresponding science topic. For example, "S-s-sun":

  • Students learn letter "s" and number 1
  • Study about the sun, construct and use a sundial, observe and chart grapes as they become raisins, paint a sun, and listen to a funny book about shadows
  • Learn that, like the sun, Jesus is the Light of the World

Character Development

This special focus is integrated into each unit.

  • The turtle lesson teaches, "I don't quit -- I persevere!"
  • The horse lesson teaches, "I obey right away."
  • The zebra lesson teaches, "I can't hide anything from God."

Daily Lessons

Clearly written, step-by-step, 90-minute daily lessons in a grid lesson plan chart for each week are of great help for all who teach. Daily work is presented in four parts:

  • Reading/Language Arts and Math – includes 100 Chart and monthly calendar, poems, phonics-based reading lessons, and handwriting.
  • Activities – Bible/character development lesson and the day's special hands-on activity focusing on science, math, art, children's literature, and creative thinking.
  • Read Aloud
  • Outside Time
