Independent Lifelong Learners

The Elementary School curriculum takes a developmental approach to academics, and resources are carefully chosen to help children learn skills, concepts, strategies, and content. The goal is to build a strong foundation that encourages students to become independent lifelong learners.

List of 4 items.

  • Bible

    Linfield Christian School is a non-denominational, independent Christian school, and while the Bible curriculum leads students to a knowledge of Scripture and an understanding of their place in God's plan, there is also a natural integration of Biblical principles into other subjects as well. Students memorize Bible verses and attend chapel every week, and they are provided with opportunities to serve their community with the love of Christ. Textbook: Bible (ACSI)
  • Math

    Math concepts are taught through the use of a hands-on manipulative approach and with a strong focus on skill building, problem solving, and concept mastery for every level of learning.  In addition, our math program incorporates practice for every day mathematics and test-taking success. Textbook:  Envision (Pearson)
  • Language Arts

    Transitional Kindergarten and Kindergarten students are introduced to reading readiness skills through a phonics-based curriculum. Informal reading begins towards the end of the first semester with formal reading starting in first grade, but a strong emphasis is placed on literature and writing (creative and formal) at all grade levels. In addition, we emphasize comprehension skills, problem solving, critical thinking, and vocabulary development, with formal spelling tests beginning in first grade. Textbook: Houghton Mifflin.
  • Science

    Our primary goal in science is to show students how God’s creation reveals the creator God, and we offer many hands-on opportunities to help students apply the scientific method of discovery. Textbook:   Mystery Science

    STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) is taught through interdisciplinary modules that bring learning to real life. The program encourages students to think through interactive activities, projects, and real world problems. Students also engage in hands-on activities in computer science and engineering, using their creativity to become collaborative problem solvers, and they develop foundational computer skills, focusing on typing and Office 365.  Curriculum: Project Lead the Way, STMath (Mind Research Institute)

  • Fine Arts

    Kindergarten-5th grade students attend a specialized Performing Arts class two to three times a week. The teaching focuses on music, drama, and movement, and students prepare for their performances in the annual Christmas and Spring Programs. Students also take Art Appreciation, spotlighting and modeling pieces from well-known artists each month. 
  • Foreign Languages

    All Elementary School students take Spanish twice a week, with a specialized teacher introducing them to verbal use of the language in addition to reading and writing skills (depending on grade level). A textbook is used in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade. Textbook: Viva el Español! (National Textbook Company)
  • History

    The goal of our history curriculum is to teach students about the world in which they live and how God works in the lives of people, past and present. Topics center on home, school, communities, the state of California, and the United States, and we emphasize geography, map, and globe skills as well. Textbook: Studies Weekly
  • Physical Education

    Physical education is taught by a specialized teacher to each class two to three days a week, and our program offers activities that aid each child’s progression in motor and skill development. In addition, we emphasize physical fitness, introduce individual and team sports (at appropriate grade levels), and emphasize the importance of good sportsmanship.

Library / Computers

List of 1 items.

  • Library/Computers

    The Elementary School employs a specialized technology instructor to teach computer and technology literacy.
    Each grade works twice weekly with the technology teacher as they learn and grow their skills in a variety of topics and lessons relevant to 21st century digital literacy.

    Each classroom has four student computers and a printer; in addition, fourth and fifth grades have class sets of iPads.

    Computers are used to enrich curriculum subject areas, including skills to help with the writing process. Computers are also used with a web-based software program called Accelerated Reader Enterprise to help motivate and challenge students in reading.

Field Trips

List of 1 items.

  • Field Trips

    Each grade level plans a variety of field trips throughout the year to enable students to enjoy experiences outside the classroom.
    Some highlights: 4th grade students culminate their California history study with a two-day/one night trip to Sacramento. This “super” field trip takes place toward the end of the school year. 5th graders enjoy a leadership camp by spending three days and two nights bonding and connecting with one another at the start of the year; the goal is that they will learn how to be leaders on campus and model for the other students what it looks like to be a united body of Christ.
