Curriculum (Grades PreK-8)

 

Curriculum Overview

Preschool Curriculum: (We Care) Children who are in the preschool room (ages 3 – Kindergarten) will be spending part of their time engaging in free play. The other half of the time will be spend working with the RE Coordinator and Childcare Staff with the We Care curriculum. This is a collection of stories and activities for young children to develop a sense of self and awareness of others’ selves, as well as build a foundation for learning about our UU Faith Tradition.

Kindergarten and First Grade Curriculum: (Around the Church, Around the Year) This curriculum helps our youngest students understand the faith and practices of Unitarian Universalism by helping them engage in their UU community. This program focuses on children's own experiences with building relationships, exploring their personal identity, and being a community member. As the year unfolds, students will gain an appreciation for Unitarian Universalist people, buildings, rituals, and celebrations.

Second and Third 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.

Fourth and 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!).
