Year 1 of KTL takes a child from a non-reader to a reader. We will explore stories and activities that support the themes of the stories. The year will move slowly but is purposeful and attempts to make sure that a student has an excellent phonics foundation. This year incorporates numbers awareness, phonics, writing, classic stories, nursery rhymes, and discovery of our world. The format is conversational and encourages thinking and getting outside and discovering the world God has made. Each week holds a small lesson in how we experience the church through the eyes of a small child. The church and her teachings are integrated into the lessons. By the end of this year the student should be a good reader and be ready to tackle the learning and exploration of Year 2.
