and Full Day Option
Kindergarten at Zion Lutheran School is a time of change, challenge and opportunity! Our five and six year old’s make great intellectual and spiritual leaps throughout the school year. Areas of personal growth include personal responsibility, self-direction and logical thinking. Our kindergarten experience shapes a child’s faith foundation and outlook on lifelong learning.
Being a Reader
Our early childhood classrooms and primary grades focus on phonological and phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, comprehension, and written expression. Teachers use flexible small group instruction to meet individualized student needs, and rely on informal and formal assessments to provide student focused instruction in an impactful and engaging way to cultivate readers.
Hands-On Experiences and Rich Mathematical Conversations. All new concepts are developed through hands-on activities and rich mathematical conversations that actively engage students in the learning process.
One In Christ
One in Christ curricular experiences help students learn of God’s Word through practical, engaging lessons. The spiritual understandings gained from the lessons are integrated into all curricular areas and extend into the playground, the home and the neighborhood, and ultimately around the world.
Extending Kindergarten learning opportunities include: Physical Education, Music, Library, Field Trips, Weekly Chapel, and special celebrations for Thanksgiving, Christmas, Mom’s Day, Dad’s Day, and Grandparents’ Day.
