Spelling Words

Our curriculum is written by BJU Press. There will be 10 words given every Monday, and tests will be Friday. You'll find the weekly spelling list on this website every week! Your child will take a pre-test each Monday, and if they receive a 100, they will not be required to take the final test on Friday!


Our curriculum is Envision Math. Students will also learn about the following: addition/subtraction, five and ten relationships, counting number patterns, place value, ordering numbers, money, geometry, fractions, measurement and data. Students have lots of hands-on time during math with manipulatives, student-led teaching, math groups, fun Friday, and math games.


Our curriculum is written by BJU.

Memory Verse: We will learn a new memory verse on Mondays, and recite it on Friday for a grade. Look on this site for our verse each week.
