Welcome to Master’s Hand Early Learning classes! The 4–6-year-old students will be in the same room all day and can leave coats, backpacks and lunch boxes in the room. To provide continuity, each teacher will focus on the same memory verse each week. Different strategies will be used in each class to make memorizing fun! We will memorize 26 verses over the course of the year. Teachers will provide bathroom breaks, but we ask that all students be completely independent in the restroom. There will be a short snack break at 10 am. Each week, please send raisins, nuts, small crackers, or other easy, quick tidbits along with a water bottle.
COURSE DETAILS: Each class will begin with an interactive, flannel board Bible story. Students will help retell the story as they find hidden pieces to place on our board. We will also memorize 26 Bible verses throughout the year. The alphabet will be a springboard for more fun! Letter sounds will be learned through song, Sandpaper letters, playdough letters, and tracing/writing will also be incorporated. Each week will also include an activity connected with the focus letter. Activities will include:
A Apples - Label the parts of an apple and learn the process from seed to fruit, eat dried apples, play apple toss game.
B Blast Off! - Read Hedgie Blasts Off by Jan Brett, build rockets from straws and connectors, glue geometric shapes to create a colorful rocket art project
C Contrasts – Read The Tortoise and the Hare, learn about opposites, use a balance scale to compare heavy and light objects, play a game moving fast/slow and finding small/big objects. Complete a worksheet identifying opposites
