Kindergarten through 5th Grade Classes
9 a.m. and 11 a.m. — Kindergarten - 1st Grade
A Discovering Year nurtures children's spiritual and religious growth through connections to their ever widening environment. They explore self, friendships, families, church, nature, and religious and cultural days. Through ritual, sharing times, quiet times, crafts, activities, singing and music, games and movement, stories and talks, they learn to appreciate the worth of each person, to work and play cooperatively, to express feelings, to celebrate human diversity, and to feel part of their UU community.
9 a.m. and 11 a.m. — 2nd - 3rd Grades
Character building through stories of the world’s religions is the focus for this year. Our UU sources invite us to examine the world’s religions for guidance in our spiritual and ethical lives. Moral Tales begins this process for 2nd and 3rd grade children by telling the stories from the world’s major religions and examining how the stories inspire us to be good people. Through the
stories, children gain tools to discern ethical action and gain experience in spiritual practices to continue a lifelong religious formation.
9 a.m. and 11 a.m. — 4th and 5th Grades
The 4th and 5th grades will explore major themes in world religions such as love, forgiveness, respect, and tolerance. This year will focus on the teachings of Jewish, Christian, and Muslim faiths. Through learning the teachings of these faiths, we will discover what is meaningful and pertinent to us as Unitarian Universalists. One unique addition to this year is our once-a-quarter field trip to meet other children from different faiths and to see different churches and social justice projects that will help children engage in their faith.
