Curriculum (Grades PreK-8)

 

Curriculum Overview

Preschool and Kindergarten Curriculum: (A Discovering Year) Children will learn more about processing emotions, interacting with classmates respectfully, and how to form a UU identity.

First and Second Grade Curriculum: (Spirit of Adventure: Discovering UU Identity through Active Learning) Children in this class will continue to develop their UU identity through active learning with an emphasis on the UU Principles and Sources. Students will learn more about famous Unitarian Universalists and the Seven Principles though active projects such as: sports, medicine, food and science. Lesson plans will be created from the Spirit of Adventure curriculum, Stories of Our World curriculum, and Tapestry resources while also being modified to best meet the unique needs of our students.

Third through Fifth Grade Curriculum: (Holy Days and Holidays) This program has students learning about the origins and meanings of holiday and holy day celebrations. They will experience festivities and transitions through stories, food, music, crafts, and ceremony. By learning about and celebrating important days from around the world, students will be able to practice living the principles and find their own place in Unitarian Universalism.

Sixth, Seventh and Eighth Grade Curriculum: (Popcorn Theology and Popcorn Theology Too: the Sequel) Students in this class will explore issues of theology and ethics through film. Teachers will be able to select from films recommended in the curriculum and lead discussions after viewing selected scenes with students (while eating popcorn of course!).
