At Sioux Falls Lutheran School, we are committed to developing capable, Christian servant-leaders in a complex world who are World Ready and Faith Secure.
From daily lesson content to weekly chapel services led by local pastors, everything we do in kindergarten revolves around learning how to faithfully and lovingly serve God and our neighbors.


Within the classroom, our kindergarten teachers use project-based instruction to keep students engaged throughout the school year. They center lessons in each individual subject around a common theme for each unit, and tailor instruction to specific student interests and needs.

Foundational math and reading skills are strengthened through the use of classroom resources, including manipulatives, technology, and a word wall referenced by students during reading and writing time.

Our elementary teachers also use The Daily 5–an approach that promotes independent work in a small group setting–to strengthen reading, writing, and math skills. In addition to helping students develop independence and accountability, The Daily 5 provides teachers with opportunities to administer more one-on-one instruction and individual assessments.


Technology is incorporated into instruction in age-appropriate ways beginning in kindergarten. Our kindergarten classroom contains a promethean board, which is used for a variety of interactive educational activities.


In addition to core subjects, we incorporate art, music, physical education, and Spanish into our curriculum at Sioux Falls Lutheran School. Our music program is particularly strong and includes classroom music and Suzuki-based violin instruction in kindergarten.


Kindergartners enjoy recess multiple times every day. Recess promotes improved student health, behavior, and academics.

Classroom teachers also incorporate “brain boosts” into the school day. The boosts are designed to increase brain activity and help students get 30-60 minutes of daily physical activity, which helps improve academic performance and overall well-being.


Community is an important part of life at Sioux Falls Lutheran School. At the beginning of the school year, kindergartners are welcomed into Family Groups comprised of students in grades K-12. Group members work together throughout the year to complete a variety of service projects and activities. Kindergartners participate in numerous other multi-grade activities throughout the year, including music programs, chapel services, field day, and a reading buddy program with our older students.


At Sioux Falls Lutheran School, we use resources from PeaceWiseKids to teach our students Christ-centered conflict resolution and reconciliation skills. By employing the skills taught through PeaceWise, our students learn problem-solving skills that will serve them well throughout the course of their lives as friends, employees, spouses, parents, and community members.
