Committed to providing every student with a Christ-centered education AoE comes along side parents to equip students to be successful and influential in their families, community, and the world, discerning the truth of God’s Word in their lives.
Footsteps for Fours from BJU Press presents active, hands-on learning and includes a balance of individual activities as well as suggested group activities. Daily math, phonics, and prereading lessons are interspersed with age-appropriate music, science, language arts, social studies, and handwriting segments. At AoE we incorporate lessons that promote comprehension and interaction and offer flexibility for all types of learners at all stages of learning.
Key concepts are solidified using math manipulatives, cooking experiences, and periodic review. Each Bible story teaches a simple truth about God. Early handwriting skills and age-appropriate phonics are taught with songs and colorful visuals that will keep your preschoolers happy and engaged.
Using the Bible Truths story cards from BJU Press, students are taught from an early age the timeless stories and truths from the sacred Scriptures.
Character traits emphasized in application stories show children their need of Christ as Savior and demonstrate ways to apply biblical principles to personal-life situations.
Bible stories from Old and New Testaments illustrate character traits including obedience (David), courage (Esther), kindness (Elisha), responsibility (Joseph), thankfulness (Timothy), contentment (Paul), generosity (the Wise Men), honesty (Paul’s nephew), prayer (Elijah), forgiveness (Jesus), trust (Noah), respect (Josiah), and patience (Abraham).
