SKILLS & ACCOMPLISHMENTS FOR ELEMENTARY STUDENTS
Please see the CIAS SCOPE AND SEQUENCE for Learning Objectives for each grade level.
Elementary school consists of grades 1-5. A well-rounded elementary education program should include all of the following:
Memorization of God's Word! We have seen so many children learn better when they are memorizing portions from the Bible.
Exposure to the aesthetic: the study of music, art, gymnastics, ballet, and dance is imperative to the formation of brain cells and memory capacity.
Physical fitness: Your students should have as much exposure to the outside world around them as possible. Sunshine and physical exercise helps them to grow into strong people.
Scholastic achievement: They should study English grammar, composition & creative writing, handwriting & penmanship, mathematics, social studies, history, science, health, and geography & map skills.
Reading & literature: Take your children to the library or add to your own collection of classics, novels, and biographies. Reading expands the mind and helps a child to see the world from an intelligent and godly perspective.
Personal skills and hygiene: they should be introduced to developing good work habits, citizenship, basic health & safety, personal grooming, and social etiquette.
Unit studies and group learning activities are a great way to expand the educational horizons of your children in their elementary years.
Club memberships: 4H, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Keepers at Home, Defenders of the Faith, AWANA, Master Clubs, Missionettes, Royal Rangers, Royal Ambassadors, and Pioneers Clubs are some of the many activities available.
