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 be sure to 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 Get ready for a fun year of practicing early reading skills and learning classic rhymes and stories! Through poems like “Hickory, Dickory” and “Baa Baa Black Sheep” as well as tales like Aesop's “The Crow and the Pitcher” and Jesus' “Parable of the Hidden Treasure”, students will practice concept of word, rhyming, simple phonics, counting, and more. Each week we will read one poem or story and then do crafts, games and activities related to its theme. We will also learn 26 scripture verses throughout the year. Activities will include making mini-books, tracing, coloring, and role-playing games.
