CYRE Taking It Home Sept 20

Rainbow Walkers

Our Orientation introduces the children to the way in which we do things and treat each other in Rainbow Walkers. It is an introduction to how the morning schedule goes. They also get acquainted with how to treat each other and themselves within the Rainbow Walkers space and how to ready for the lessons and stories they will hear this year in our Rainbow Path year of stories.

Questions for Parents to ask:

  • I wonder how you get yourself ready for the story in Spirit Play?
  • I wonder what work you did today?
  • I wonder what new things you saw today in your classroom?

Questers

“There's a world waiting for you, yours is the quest that's just begun.”
by James Weldon Johnson

This year Questers are going on four quests seeking answers to important questions:

  • Inner Quest – Who are you? What are you like? How are you different? What's your place in the world? A mirror board and a personal alien will help you find some answers.
  • UU Quest – What does it mean to be a Unitarian Universalist? What's special about UUs at Shelter Rock? How do UUs live out their principles? You'll meet and investigate some outstanding UUs who will show you some answers.
  • Mystery Quest – How can you understand what you can't see? Like God? Or the great mystery? Or spirit and spirituality? A poem beginning with pigs that can't swim will help you develop your own answers.
  • Action Quest – How can you make the world a better place? A class social action project your group chooses and does will let you try out some answers.
  • Our first Sunday together will be spent getting to know each other and playing games! We look forward to seeing you!

Explorers

The Explorers are exploring Big Questions this year! Unitarian Universalists often enjoy and even celebrate asking big questions. In Unitarian Universalism, asking the questions is just as important as getting answers. After exploring each big question, we will make a video of a newscast for our own, pretend, broadcast station – WCUU, which stands for Wisdom of the Community of Unitarian Universalism. We will post our newscasts on Youtube. It is going to be an exciting and fun year!

This Sunday we will get to know each other and play some fun games. Come on up to room 29 for a morning of fun!

Coming of Age

“We are never complete. We are never finished. We are always yet to be. May we always allow others to be, and help and enable each other to grow toward all that we are capable of becoming.”

Welcome to Coming of Age! We have a fun and exciting morning planned! Join our Coming of Age facilitators for a morning of games and getting to know each other!
