A New Orthodox Marketplace Website is Coming!

The Orthodox Marketplace online web store and the Department of Religious Education's catalog store are in the process of merging operations.

While we are working out the details of this transition, the Orthodox Marketplace website will suspend sales functionality of the site. Customers will be able to browse the catalog, log in and check on the status of outstanding orders and order history (including downloads).

However, the cart and checkout features will be disabled.

If you wish to purchase items in the interim, a subset of our product catalog is still available from our Amazon Storefront.

You may also wish to purchase items from the Department of Religious Education Resource Guide, available below. The DRE can be reached via their toll-free number: 1-800-566-1088.

We expect the new Orthodox Marketplace and Resource Center website to launch in 2016.

Greek Education Kindergarten Curriculum

CODE: GRK-121423

30 days
Add to wish list
The Direct Archdiocesan District Office of Education of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America has recently published a Curriculum for Kindergarten for the teaching of Greek as a second language to children of this age group. Based on the developmental needs and the learning abilities of the kindergarten child, the Kindergarten Curriculum places an emphasis on oral communication and, at the same time, aims at instilling in the young learners a sense of pride, love, and respect for the Greek cultural heritage and the Christian Orthodox Faith. The Kindergarten Curriculum is divided into 13 units, one of which refers to major religious holidays and customs. Each unit consists of the following: the general goal, the objective of each lesson, recommended activities and materials, basic vocabulary, phrases for oral communication practice, and a vast list of resources (songs, poems, stories, and games) to help teachers introduce each unit. Teachers are advised to use the Curriculum as a “guide.” They may adapt it to the particular needs and abilities of their students and use various resources to achieve the general goal and the learning objectives of each lesson. The publication of the Kindergarten Curriculum was made possible due to a generous grant from the “Stavros S. Niarchos” Foundation and is offered gratis to all schools. Only shipping will be billed.
