Grades 1 - 4

Academics

Academics – First & Second Grade

When children enter the first grade, they are eager to learn and create. The program at PBS is designed to use these natural tendencies to build skills in reading, writing, math, Bible, science and social studies. The language arts curriculum is a balanced literacy program which provides phonics instruction, small group reading instruction and writing experiences to meet the students’ needs. Math manipulatives are commonly used to help develop number concepts. Students in first and second grades are engaged daily in hands-on activities to develop knowledge and understanding of the world around them.

Academics -Third & Fourth Grade

Children in third and fourth grades are still easily motivated to learn new ideas. As a result, PBS teachers enrich the academic curriculum with art, music, experiments, technology and hands-on activities. Students are held to high expectations of self-discipline, respect and kindness. With this in mind, students have the opportunity to grow academically, spiritually, socially and physically through a curriculum designed to meet each students’ needs.
