Clark’s Cove, Terrific Tigers and Lady Bugs

We have three Pre-Kindergarten/4-year-old classes at Immanuel Lutheran Christian Academy as well. These children are preparing for kindergarten! They are using the Handwriting Without Tears program and practicing writing every day! They have letters of the week, show and tell weekly, are learning the pledges to the American and Christian flags, and so much more. By the end of the year, the children are learning to read small sight words. The teachers complete lesson plans that include cooking, sensory, nature, art, science, music, and imaginative experiences. The children attend weekly chapel services, P.E. and music classes. The children are tying shoes, buttoning pants, zipping jackets, cleaning up after themselves, cleaning their lunch space, and helping with smaller children. They have many opportunities to give, and are learning about the love of Jesus every day. The ratio for each of our 4-year old classes are 1:15. The teachers for our 4 year olds are:
