Walkers

Curriculum

Students use the ABeka program. The curriculum is challenging, with biblical integration, and places emphasis on math, phonics, and penmanship, along with drills and routine assessments.

Language
Our Walkers children will develop language as they are encouraged to talk through song, story and conversation, while developing language through letter recognition, sound and songs.

Numbers
Our children will experience simple counting as each opportunity presents itself.

Bible
Each student will have the opportunity to talk to God through prayer, hear God’s Word through song and daily lessons and learn God’s Word through memory verses.

Sign Language
When babies learn sign language, this skill provides him or her with a powerful educational tool of earlier communication. Frustration and outbursts are lessened, because baby can immediately communicate his wants/needs until he can physically pronounce it.

Toddler sign language can be used to develop social and language skills (even though they are a bit older than your typical infant). Toddlers can speak a few words, but still have many times when they are unable to express themselves to their satisfaction.

Many of the infamous “terrible two’s” tantrums are a result of complete and total frustration over the inability to express emotions or feelings. Toddlers can learn Toddler Sign Language, which makes communication easier and more effective. A child having a tantrum is a miserable as the parents feel trying to cope with the emotional rage. Anything that gives a safe outlet for emotional expression can only be beneficial.

Learning sign language does not delay speech, but in fact aids speech development. Most baby signers speak earlier than babies who do not learn baby sign language.

Art
Students will participate in activities that aide in the development of small motor skills, such as cutting, coloring and other crafts and materials, along with the opportunity to be creative.

Information
Students receive a Daily Information Sheet and an evaluation twice a year.
