Grades 3-5 is a classroom facilitated using a workshop model. All levels begin as a whole group to study a basic concept after which small groups break off for differentiation. This allows for groups to be established based on ability rather than grade and age.
Cross age interaction is another feature of the room. The students enjoy the blessing of regularly going to an assisted living facility to share their love of Christ. Being paired with 3K and 4K students for reading buddies encourages positive role modeling for all. The students in this classroom also experience a middle school atmosphere in the afternoons in which departmentalization is used. This allows for the teachers to teach to their strengths and the students to enjoy moving to different classrooms for different subjects.
