Block A: 6-7-Year-Old Classes

In homeschooling we recognize that a grade category doesn’t always fit your child. Some children need a little longer to develop academically or socially.

If your student is a beginning reader or struggles to read smoothly, Block A is the best block to put him or her in.

Opening Assembly

Class Description: The grammar opening assembly is a time where students come together for memorization of a Bible passage and major historical events. The grammar  level is the optimal time for students to be working on memorization.

Math & Science

9:25 – 10:30 AM

Class Description: Using Apologia’s text on Botany as a backdrop, we will be exploring the classification of plants, their life cycle, and how they make food. This will be a fun, “hands on” exploration of this topic. For the math portion of class, we will be focusing on number sense, addition and subtraction facts, measuring, and problem solving. This will mostly be through interactive learning games and activities that will support whatever curriculum you are using for math at home.

Language Arts

10:35 – 11:40 AM

Class Description: Using Explode the Code curriculum, this Language Arts class will develop reading proficiency by building on essential literacy skills through phonological awareness, vocabulary, comprehension, fluency and spelling skills. Through fun filled classroom exercises and rewards for applying learned skills throughout the week, the goal of this class is to have each student reading proficiently at or above 1st grade level by the end of the year with a secondary goal of developing a love for reading.

12:20 – 1:05 PM

Class Description: Grammar art is a combination of art history and art technique, taught at age-appropriate levels. Students will learn about famous artists from different eras, be introduced to art vocabulary, and create amazing projects using a variety of media. Homework will be very minimal, if any, and will be optional.

Music & Drama

1:10 – 1:55 PM

Class Description: This class is primarily about developing skills in drama, music, and choreographed movement in preparation for this year’s production, Doctor Dolittle, based on the book The Voyages of Doctor Dolittle by Hugh Lofting. Students will put on one main-stage production for family and friends. We will be playing drama games, singing, dancing, and learning how to project our voices, become believable, have stage confidence, and also learn some basic music theory. Students are expected to memorize lines at home, attend the dress rehearsal and the production.

Please note: If students are not able to attend the production for vacation or other reasons they may attend the class, but need to let us know ASAP so they are not casted in a role.

Teacher: Katie Howard & Bobbi Pangborn

Physical Education

2:00 – 2:45 PM

Class Description: In PE class we strive to give our students a healthy dose of exercise through a variety of interactive games. We encourage godly competition, and team work. Above all we teach that our bodies are the Temple of the Holy Ghost and should be treated accordingly. For the first five minutes of class every year we learn something about how God the Creator designed these human vessels. This year we will be learning/reviewing the scientific names of our muscles and bones.

Please note: Students should wear appropriate shoes, and clothes for PE. Sneaker style shoes, and for those girls that prefer dresses, they will need to wear shorts under them. Please bring water bottles to class.

Teacher: Katy Stone


2:50 – 3:35 PM

Class Description: This class is an introductory to Latin.
