2018 ~ 2019 Curriculum
Our K-2 classes will resume with our Montessori-based Spirit Play™. We will begin the year with stories about our UU rich history and continue the year exploring other religions.
We see the purpose of religious education as helping children in living into their own answers to the existential questions: Where did we come from? What are we doing here? How do we choose to live our lives? What happens when we die?
We use the Montessori approach and Berryman’s morning as worship approach for the structure of the morning. As in Montessori, the key elements are the prepared classroom environment and the teachers. These elements free the children to work at their own pace on their own issues after an initial lesson or story within a safe and sacred structure shepherded by two adults.
3rd ~ 5th Grades
Sing to the Power
Sing to the Power, by Lynn Ungar, affirms our Unitarian Universalist heritage of confronting “powers and structures of evil with justice, compassion, and the transforming power of love.” Participants experience their own power, and understand how it can help them to be leaders.
