Footsteps for Fours, 3rd ed.
Create Joyful Learning Experiences
Learning opportunities abound as students gather around the Teaching Tree with Max and his animal friends. Young learners will explore foundational math, phonics, and prereading skills with their teacher. Interactive lessons introduce music, science, language arts, social studies, and handwriting with intentional play to create a joyful and engaging experience.
Phonics Games and Songs
Learners develop phonemic awareness with learning games and songs with Max’s friends, Sidney and Sophie the squirrels. Songs and stories introduce students to word families and high frequency words for reading readiness.
Active Learning and Intentional Play
Intentional play gives students opportunities for social-emotional development, motor skill development, and development of their natural curiosity. Each learning center suggestion and group learning activity allows students to interact with each other and with their world so that they can learn through play. Independent activities and manipulatives give opportunities for hands-on learning and STEM introductions.
Teaching Biblical Perspectives
Labeled sections in the teacher edition identify opportunities for teachers to begin biblical worldview shaping. Teachers can use these shaping sections to help students develop biblical perspectives on how they interact with each other, how they communicate, and how they apply the knowledge of God.
