Children's Race

Grade 1

2024 - 2025

Incoming 6 - 7.5 year old (age 7 by May 15, 2025)

Our 1st year curriculum provides children and families with a warm and nurturing experience that meets the student’s innate curiosity and desire to grow with a rich multi-sensory experience. The seven year old child continues to develop independent and pictorial thinking. The child is eager to bring focused concentration to learning settings. Much learning is orchestrated through rich, imaginative pictures, activities, and imitations which lay the groundwork for future critical and conceptual thinking.   

 

Here are just some of the activities that make up the daily rhythm of our 1st Year Pod:​

  • Songs

  • Finger plays and games

  • Movement

  • The Alphabet

  • Simple spelling

  • Introduction to reading through writing

  • Arithmetic

  • History and literature: fairy tales, nature stories and folk tales   (retold and dramatized by the class)

  • Storytelling

  • Puppetry

  • Form drawing

  • Crafts

  • Cooking

  • Knitting

  • Singing

  • Pentatonic flute

  • Painting

  • Beeswax modeling

  • Foreign Language

  • Group Activities

  • Free play

Children experience all the activities with a sense of joy, yet each develops capacities, including fine motor skills, hand-eye coordination and language. Daily outside play encourages children to engage in more active movement involving the whole body. The seasons of the year are observed and celebrated with festivals.
