Your child will continue reading with phonics and word analysis skills through our A Beka Book Christian Reading series that emphasizes wholesome classic literature and Biblical stories and lessons.A Beka Book phonics teaches grades 1 and 2 students the short sounds of the vowels and then how to blend these sounds with a consonant. In a short time, students are able to read the hundreds of one-syllable words which have short vowel sounds. This allows students to feel a sense of accomplishment from the very beginning. Once they have mastered the simple words, they learn more sounds and longer words.Phonics skills are applied in meaningful, character-building stories that correlate with the phonics concepts as they are learned.Along with Reading Development, your child will continue to learn spelling rules, cursive writing and formation, memory verses, grammar, and creative writing.
Mathematics and arithmetic concepts will continue to develop with number recognition, counting, number sequences, addition facts including three-digit addition with carrying, subtraction facts and two-digit subtraction, story problems, and more.Students will begin a more in-depth study of U.S. and World History and Geography as well as Science, Health, and Bible Studies. Lessons such as Salvation Series, Genesis, Life of Christ, and Paul, along with memory verses, hymns, and Bible doctrines will be studied.
