CURRICULUM DETAILS - PRE-K THROUGH 3RD GRADE
Pre-K & Kindergarten:
Our Pre-K and Kindergarten class uses the Spark: Activate Faith curriculum. The Bible-based lessons follow the Revised Common Lectionary each week. Each lesson follows a four-part sequence: Gather, Open the Bible, Activate Faith and Send. The children and teachers gather together to explore the Bible, enjoy fun activities, pray, and grow in faith.
1st – 3rd Grades:
Our 1st and 2nd grade class uses the Holy Moly curriculum. The multi-media lessons creatively span both the Old and New Testaments of the Bible. Each lesson follows a four-part sequence: Discover, Relate, Connect and Create. Each week, kids watch a brief animated Bible story video, talk about the story, read the Bible, and try a creative leaflet activity.
As a supplement to the curriculum, our 3rd Graders will learn about the Sacraments of Baptism and Communion. It is also Southminster’s tradition to present each of our 3rd Graders with their very own Bibles. It is a wonderful keepsake!
