A Beka curriculum is used for Math, Language, Reading, Spelling, History, and Penmanship. These are rules-governed lessons and activities so there is a logical purpose behind the learning.*
Math – We teach traditional mathematics which promotes structure and order that shows students the importance of exactness, preciseness, and completeness of math.
Language- The study of grammar is valuable in helping students express themselves clearly and creatively. It enables them to think logically and in an orderly fashion.
Reading/Phonics – We teach from the basics of phonics which makes reading more sensible. We place a high priority on phonics and reading in every year of learning.
Spelling- There is a new list of spelling words each week for grades 1-8.
History- Kindergarten through 4th grades will focus on American geography and biographical glimpses of Americans who have helped shape our country. 5th-8th grades give students a better understanding of the working knowledge of the Eastern hemisphere history and geography.
Penmanship- Starting at preschool age, we teach cursive handwriting. Cursive involves a flowing, uninterrupted movement which reinforces the left-to-right use of our written language. It also reinforces the beginning and end of words, with proper spacing of letter, unlike manuscript
