Pre-K and Kindergarten children in this class will gain foundational knowledge in Spanish through the joy
of art. Students will have opportunities to experiment with a range of materials to create projects based
on themes designed to incorporate Spanish vocabulary into their projects. Manipulating art material
will continue to build fine motor skills like greater hand dexterity through fun activities. Students will
learn Spanish for basic classroom instructions and learn colors, numbers, shapes, animals and more. No
previous Spanish language experience is required for this class.

The preschool course is an opportunity for preschool students to learn pre-reading skills through All About Reading. Your student will enjoy the special games, crafts, and story time read-alouds, and you will love the way your student effortlessly learns essential pre-reading skills. Your student will learn five very important pre-reading skills: Print Awareness, Phonological Awareness, Letter Knowledge, Listening Comprehension, and Motivation to Read.
These skills lay the foundation for learning to read. Students will also learn numbers, colors, shapes, and much more in an engaging and fun session. Through movement and various activities they will also learn about nutrition, weather, following directions, opposites, and basic emotions. Most importantly, children will
learn different Bible verses and Bible heroes that will help build a foundation for loving God’s Word.

This class is intended for students aged 4-6 but has some flexibility in age range. We will be observing and studying God's creation through nature walks, looking at plants, learning about little critters and big ones, playing indoor and outdoor games, making arts and crafts. We will do all of this with a focus on using all five senses.
This will all be seasoned with a pinch of German. Children will learn several German words throughout the year. The plan is to be predominantly outside. Children will need to bring rubber boots and a rain jacket if it is raining.

Every person is made up of three things: Body, Soul and Spirit. Zoe Life will spend time on all three in each session.
Body-Each child has intellectual and physical needs. We will stimulate your child’s intellectual needs using various crafts and fun learning activities while also encouraging them to express themselves with words. We will encourage making eye contact, attending to a task, requesting, initiating, asking for help, expressing ideas and frustrations using words, turn taking, sharing and problem solving. We will work on one, two and three step directions. We will also teach how our behavior directly affects others. Various toys will be available for pretend play to develop abstract thinking.
Soul-We have emotional needs. Every child will be showered with love and acceptance. We understand our children are sometimes disruptive and uncooperative; we use these opportunities to teach alternative behaviors.
Spirit-We have spiritual needs. The Word of God is incorporated into absolutely everything we do. It is the power behind the growth we want to see. Children tend to be more self-centered rather than others centered. We seek to change that. Careful discipline in self-control will be a main focus.
We’ll lead them to use the "JOY” method…
What will this group produce in your child? Galatians 5:22 The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.
God is love! The more that God’s Word flows through your child, the more of these qualities you will begin to see!
Joy will be produced in their heart when they find out it is much more fun to play with others than alone.
Peace is produced deep inside despite outward circumstances and appearances.
Patience is produced when we learn how to take turns and share.
Kindness is produced when we learn that our behavior directly affects the feelings of others; making them happy or sad.
Goodness is produced when we learn to obey our parents because God said so!
Faithfulness is produced as we learn to never give up; we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us!
Gentleness is produced as we learn consideration for others. Putting others before ourselves is pleasing to God.
Self-control is produced when we learn to control our emotions and respond appropriately to others.
We will learn how our behavior directly affects other people’s feelings; and how they interact, respond and ultimately decide if they will be friends with us or not. We will encourage the use of language at all times to communicate our feelings of fear, frustration and anger.
Zoe is the Greek word for “life.” John 1:4 In Him was life [Zoe], and the life was the light of men.
