Grades K-2 in the Primary Room will use two different curricula, beginning with Spirit Play. This is a Montessori inspired curriculum devoted to helping our wiggly bodies understand the UU Seven Principles and Six Sources through the use of storytelling with visual aides. After the winter holiday we will start a Unitarian Universalist Association-created curriculum called Creating Home. The primary focus of this curricula is making the connection of church as another sort of home; a faith home. We will mix learning with the opportunity to also engage in structured free play at the end of each class.
Grades 3-Grade 5 in the Intermediate Room will be working on a UUA curricula Windows and Mirrors: “The metaphor of windows and mirrors represents the dynamic relationship among our awareness of self, our perceptions of others, and others’ perceptions of us.” We will later merge onto another UUA Curricula Love Connects Us: “The program builds active participants in our faith. Children learn how our actions create a new heritage of connecting in love which will shape the faith of future generations.” (All the UUA curricula listed here can be viewed at http://www.uua.org/re/tapestry/children).
