  • Science – 1st Period Friday

    Ages: 3rd-4th Grade

    Course Description: Science in the Age of Reason (by Dr. Jay Wile) is the fourth book in a hands-on, multilevel elementary science series that introduces scientific concepts using history as its guide. It covers the scientific works of natural philosophers from the early 1600s to the early 1800s. Because the course covers science as it was developed, it discusses a wide range of topics including astronomy, medicine, botany, zoology, chemistry, geology, human physiology, electricity, conservation laws, and weather. Students learn not only the science that was being discovered at the time, but also the beliefs of the natural philosophers who were discovering it. As a result, students can see how a person’s worldview affects his or her scientific conclusions. 

    Teacher: Kim Holt

    Course Expectations: Students are expected to complete assigned reading material and complete notebook page questions/assignments (as listed in the syllabus) prior to class. By doing so, they will be better equipped to understand the material as it is being presented on Fridays, as well as participate in classroom discussions, demonstrations, experiments, and projects.

    Course description: “Nothing short of a great Civil War of values rages today…Two sides with vastly differing and incompatible worldviews are locked in a bitter conflict that permeates every level of society. The struggle is for the hearts and minds of the people.  It is a war over ideas…” James Dobson and Gary Bauer highlight the necessity of training young Christians to “renew their minds” with God’s truth. Worldview training will help your students see the big picture and answer such BIG questions as:  Where did everything come from? Who am I? Why are we here? What’s right and wrong, and who decides? What happens when we die? 

    The goals of this course are to teach students the answers to these and many more questions from a biblical worldview and to teach students that ideas have consequences. One’s worldview determines how one thinks and acts in every area of life. This is the most important class your student will take in preparation for college and life!

  • IEW: Following Narnia Writing – 1st Period Friday

    Using the first three novels from The Chronicles of Narnia series, this course will enable 6th and 7th grade students to experience the enchanted land of Narnia through the “Structure and Style” writing method. The Institute for Excellence in Writing teaching methods have helped many students to become successful and competent communicators.  In this course students will move through each of the nine units in a step by step fashion with clear directives that will help to reduce confusion and build confidence in their writing ability. They will learn to take notes and create outlines, summarize narrative stories, construct a research report, compose creative essays and write formal essays and critiques.  This approach to learning to write provides the structure that students need in order to develop confidence in the writing process. Additionally, stylistic techniques (strong verbs, quality adjectives, use of adverbial clauses, sentence openers, etc.) will be taught incrementally to move students from the basics to more sophisticated writing. This class will also have a Grammar Review and Vocabulary Development component.

    Students in Middle School English I, are expected to know the basics of sentence and paragraph construction.  They will be expected to complete any assigned reading, grammar and/or writing exercises (as listed on the syllabus) prior to class time each week. Keeping up with assignments will allow students to participate in classroom discussions and activities and will enable them to progress in skill development. Pre-reading of the first 3 Narnia books (The Magician’s Nephew, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, and The Horse and His Boy) over the summer would be helpful, but chapters of each book will be assigned weekly for homework as we work through the units. Chapter 1 of The Magician’s Nephew should be read or reread, prior to the first day of class. Students will also need to bring the appropriate book to class each week for reference during class lessons.

  • Spanish 1 – Friday 2nd Period, Wednesday 4th Period

    Course Description: BJU Press Nuevos Amigos is a brand new edition that is designed to enable students to focus on developing proficiency, cultural awareness, and a Biblical world view in Spanish.  The course uses a standards based approach following guidelines from ACTFL ( The American Council on the teaching of Foreign Languages.)  Emphasis is on obtaining a functional use of the language rather than primarily focusing on grammar memorization.  Grammar memorization is good, but it doesn’t stop there.  We have to get the grammar out of the students mouths so the student can say something meaningful about themselves, others and God.  Students will increase understanding and appreciation for life in the Spanish-speaking world.  Students will also grow in their use of Spanish at home and abroad to show God’s love to Hispanic neighbors.  My goal is to get the students talking and responding in Spanish as much as possible while they are in class.  I am excited about this edition because students will be able to access activities online that will enable them to practice listening and speaking skills at home.

    Course Expectations: Students are expected to complete weekly assigned material, exercises, and activities.  Students will keep a notebook for recording vocabulary and key grammar rules, and keep handouts given in class.

  • Worldview History – 3rd Period Friday

    Course description: “Nothing short of a great Civil War of values rages today…Two sides with vastly differing and incompatible worldviews are locked in a bitter conflict that permeates every level of society. The struggle is for the hearts and minds of the people.  It is a war over ideas…” James Dobson and Gary Bauer highlight the necessity of training young Christians to “renew their minds” with God’s truth. Worldview training will help your students see the big picture and answer such BIG questions as:  Where did everything come from? Who am I? Why are we here? What’s right and wrong, and who decides? What happens when we die? 

    The goals of this course are to teach students the answers to these and many more questions from a biblical worldview and to teach students that ideas have consequences. One’s worldview determines how one thinks and acts in every area of life. This is the most important class your student will take in preparation for college and life!

  • Theater: The ACT – 5th Period Friday

    Literacy, creativity, self-expression, body awareness, love of reading, and collaboration with others are just a handful of the advantages children gain by learning through the theatre arts! In this class, kids will act, play theatre games, learn the basics of improv, create characters, and perform in short skits and scenes with other members of the class. Fundamental skills and scene work will be the major focus, with stories chosen from a wide array of plays for young actors. While having fun and expressing their creativity, students will encounter a wide variety of settings, characters, and plots, learning to become effective storytellers and growing their knowledge of the world in the process.

    Each semester will have a different thematic focus. The theme for Fall 2019 will be “Fairytales from Around the World”. The Spring 2019 theme will be determined by the interests of the students in the class. Each semester will end with a showcase performance!

    The goal of nature study is for it to be an organic learning environment. We will focus on different units study, (trees, flowers & plants, weather, etc.) but ultimately each week we will spend our time on a nature walk observing what is around us.  After our observations, we will spend time in class documenting what we discovered.  The children will choose what they want to write and/or draw in their journals.  It will reflect their own learning process.  Some weeks we will have an activity or a book to read to expand our understanding.  At home each week there will be reading assignments from our text, The Storybook of Science.  It is a living book on science and it will be fun for the kids (and for you as well!).

  • Early Literature – 6th Period Friday
    Course: Early Literature (grades 1-2)
    Teacher: Lindsay Larson
    Course Expectations: 30-45 minutes per week of reading (or audiobooks)
    Description: The goal for early literature is to teach children to love to read and learn to fall in love with rich literature! We hope to make lasting memories as we read through a selection of living storybooks throughout the year. We will read a mixture of picture books and chapter books, some of which will be read at home throughout the week. Each week in class we will dive into the character development of each story and learn how to recognize different parts of a story. We will do a variety of fun and creative activities throughout the year to support what we are learning through the books. I cannot wait to help your child develop a true love of reading!
    Curriculum: Beautiful Feet (Living books)
    Prerequisites: none
  • Introduction to Literature – 6th Period Friday

    Course Description: Our goal in Introduction to Literature is to expose the students to some of the best books and to ignite and inspire a love of learning through story.  Through discussion and activity, we hope to foster curiosity, delight and to develop a deep relationship with the text.   We will use Beautiful Feet Books’ “Teaching Character Through Literature as the basis for our class.

    “Neil Gaiman once wrote ‘Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.’ This is one of the many reasons a literature-rich childhood is as important to a child’s moral development as vegetables are to his health.  We know that reading aloud is important for nurturing academic skills, but even more essential, the stories we choose to tell our children will help shape their moral imaginations.

    Course Expectations: Students in Introduction to Literature will be expected to complete the reading in preparation for the week’s discussion and activities, typically 4 chapters. These can be done as a read-aloud or a read-alone or via book on tape. There will be one small book report type project at the end of the school year.  I will provide more details once we get into the spring semester.
