Rod and Staff Preschool
A-B-C Series, G-H-I Series, and Readiness Test
The Rod and Staff Preschool Series is designed to awaken and shape the child's mental and motor skills. As Rod and Staff's alternative to kindergarten, this series is designed to be used by four- to five-year-olds as preparation for an average 6-year-old to start the first grade Bible Nurture and Reader Series, which begins with the basics in teaching language skills.
This series provides preparation material. Six workbooks give practice in coloring, cutting, pasting, and following directions while learning neatness and carefulness with books. The storybook gives auditory and oral practice for the child.
This series is being developed to extend the A-B-C series. When completed, it will provide six more books to help build a good scholastic foundation for the preschool child. This new series will use a specific geographic region as a theme for each book, giving the added advantage of teaching geographic awareness by association as well as an awareness of God as the Creator. The exercises are designed for the child to do with adult guidance.
The book Bible Pictures to Color contains 60 pictures to accompany the Bible Stories to Read storybook. Intersperse using these books during the whole school year as you are doing the other workbooks.
For the nine other workbooks (A and C-J), use them in alphabetical order. There are 64 pages in each book. To make the preschool program last for a typical school year, use about 3 pages per day of the workbooks, and a Bible story and picture every 3 days or so.
Just Thinking and Choosing, featuring a mountain theme, is the latest book in the new G-H-I Series.
The remaining books K and L are in development, but have not been published yet. (Sorry, no publication forecast is available.)
