The Abeka Christian-Based Curriculum
Through the Abeka curriculum, our teachers will have the opportunity to teach so much more than academics. Students can be trained in lessons of character that will last a lifetime. They will also enjoy learning about community helpers and safety lessons as we demonstrate the importance of each.
Students will learn habits and procedures for the classroom as well as being introduced to letters (A-Z) & numbers (1-5). They will also be taught finger plays and poems that correspond with the alphabet and numbers they are learning for the week. Children will enjoy art as they explore crayons and finger-paint with their teacher.
Effective techniques will be used to establish good routines and habits for the classroom.
Conscious Discipline is a comprehensive classroom management program and a social-emotional curriculum. It is based on current brain research, child development information, and developmentally appropriate practices. Conscious Discipline® has been specifically designed to make changes in the lives of adults first. The adults, in turn, change the lives of children.
Conscious Discipline is a way or organizing schools and classrooms around the concept of a School Family. Each member of the family—both adult and child—learns the skills needed to successfully manage life tasks such as learning, forming relationships, communicating effectively, being sensitive to others’ needs and getting along with others.
Conscious Discipline® empowers teachers and other adults with the Seven Powers for Self Control. These powers change the adults’ perception and relationship with conflict, empowering them to be proactive instead of reactive during conflict times. These core beliefs strengthen our utilization of the frontal lobes of the brain. The frontal lobes are to the brain as a conductor is to an orchestra. The frontal lobes are our moral leader.
