Elementary Curriculum Guide
First Woodway Christian School strives to create an atmosphere where learning naturally takes place. Emphasis is placed on high academic standards, self-discipline, and character building as the children grow in body, mind, and spirit. God’s truths are integrated into all areas. Instruction is teacher-directed and student-centered with a strong “hands-on” approach to learning. Individual use of computers and Smart Board Technology is also used to reinforce the curriculum.
The instructional materials used are strong in presentation and sequential review which allows the students to be presented with new information while reviewing and using what has previously been introduced. The Saxon Phonics curriculum is used for teaching basic reading and spelling. The McGraw Hill Reading Series supplements this curriculum. The Math curriculum is Everyday Mathematics: The University of Chicago School Mathematics Project. The curriculum for Social Studies is a combination of A Beka and Harcourt Press.
