Phonics and Reading
Phonics and reading. Children in first year nursery begin by mastering the vowels and consonants and their sounds by enjoyable classroom teaching. Formal blends and reading words comes naturally after that.
Students learn cursive writing in a program that is correlated with their phonics. As they learn the sound/name of each vowel and consonant, they learn to write the lowercase letters in writing time.
In first year nursery, students begin to understand the concepts of numbers. By the end of the year, they will be able to count from 1 to 100, recognize 1 to 20, and answer simple combinations.
Activity time involves a number of fun activities, including Bible activity pages, poetry and finger plays, drama and nursery rhymes, art, music, Show and Tell, and Telling Time.
Bible time is the most important time of the school day. It is the first subject that is taught each day
