Primary Grades

Primary Grade students – including older kids who feel more active: Whole-body, kinesthetic lessons are planned to learn about our topics.  Children will be hiking, playing cooperative and sharing games, and doing projects about fairness and friendliness.  We’ll use ideas from the Soul Matters consortium of congregations.

Julianna McGonigle, a former second grade teacher, leads this group and aims to get outdoors every week that it’s reasonable; children’s outdoor gear should be ready and waiting in the coat area.

Our curriculum rotation follows these themes:

  • September: Vision
  • October: Sanctuary
  • November: Memory
  • December: Mystery
  • January: Possibility
  • February: Trust
  • March: Journey
  • April: Wholeness
  • May: Curiosity
  • June: Beauty
