Quoting Steph+Alice+Caroline:" In addition to her homework, she has to memorize one bible verse a week and will work on reading and ... [snip!] ... I will be becoming much more familiar with the bible. Should I go buy one? I'm sure they'll be sending me home the scriptures."


Are they using Abeka for their curriculum? Its a popular christian school program...I've heard that it's a lot of work. I know some homeschoolers who use their homeschool program -- god speed! lol.

I will ask the teacher. I'm happy they are learning the bible though. I like prayer and all but I think it is important for them to actually learn what it says as well rather than a teacher's opinion of "hey God is good." (though that's also good and nice.) In the pre-k program there was far less structure with the religious part of it. Just a morning prayer, some lessons from the bible and that was it.

Abeka is a good solid program academically, not just religious stuff. It is more than what we want for Kindergarten in our home, but it's rock solid. I hope she enjoys her kinder year!

Thanks for the info. We chose the school for the academics, I hope it pays off. The Christian aspect is nice of course too.

Normal. My daughter had a weekly homework sheet along with books to read and tests every Friday for spelling and sounding out and writing...
