Elementary Classes include: Language Arts (Phonics, Reading, Spelling, Writing, and Grammar), Math, Science, History, Art, P.E., and Geography
Students at Covenant Academy create a program twice a year to share with family and friends. At the spring Student Showcase, the K-6th grade choir sang, My Quiet Time Alone with God and highlighted project learning from Ancient History and Science.
Reading is a critical skill for students to develop for academic success and understanding. In addition to becoming proficient readers we want our students to develop a love for reading. Our Friday R.E.A.D. program allows students to interact with books in a way that is fun and exciting bringing to life history, geography, science, and art.
R.E.A.D. stands for Read, Explore and Discover.
The class schedule on Friday is divided into blocks of time that allows students in grades K-6 to engage in different aspects of a book. During the READ block, teachers read engaging stories related to history and science or simply good literature. With opportunity for read aloud time, students develop listening and writing skills, creativity, and reading fluency.
The EXPLORE segment of the day explores the book’s characters, character traits, setting, the author and illustrator. Through hands on projects students will investigate the art, music, science, geography and cultural topics introduced in the story during the DISCOVER phase of the day.
Mondays and Wednesdays are a full day of core classes and P.E. for students K-6th grade.
Friday students take assessments, participant in the R.E.A.D. enrichment program, and attend Math block.
