Kindergarten through 3rd Grade
"For it is precept upon precept, precept upon precept, line upon line, line upon line, here a little, there a little." (Isaiah 28:10)
At Foundations Christian School (FCS) we often talk about education in agricultural terms in that the most important part is the fruit, the outcome; the character, knowledge and wisdom which is the product or produce of the students educational experience. To continue that analogy, the early elementary years are about planting seeds! Beginning in Kindergarten we begin planting seeds from God's Word, science, math, language, history, literature and the arts.
The philosophy and methodology of Foundations Christian school is truly unique, and we believe, superior, to other contemporary public or Christian schools. In the early elementary years, the area of study which receives the most attention and which we have historically excelled in is the teaching of reading. Our reading program is exceptional, it creates a foundation upon which we can than read with comprehension more challenging literature and documents in the middle school and high school years. The texts in our early reading program include:
- The Writing Road to Reading - The Spaulding Method
- Phonemic Awareness
- How To Teach Spelling by Rudginsky and Haskell
- The Noah Plan Reading Curriculum Guide
