Roots Class (pre-k to 1st) w/Laura:
This Sunday in the Roots class we observed Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month by reading the book. “Eyes that Kiss in the Corners” by Joanna Ho. In this book a young girl notices her eyes are different from her classmates. She realizes that her eyes are like her mother’s, her grandmother’s, and her little sister’s. “They have eyes that kiss in the corners and glow like warm tea, crinkle into crescent moons, and are filled with stories of the past and hope for the future.” We talked about how everyone is different by playing a game of Simon Says with aspects of the way we look, our families and our interests.
Seedlings Class (2nd-5th) w/Piaf:
We reviewed how the two U’s from our UU faith came together in the 1960 and had to “hunt” for principles they agreed on, leading to our first 6 principles, with 2 more being added later. Then we went on a “hunt” for parts of our principles that I had hidden around the room, assembled them into posters, and added illustrations to show what each one could look like.
Wildflower Youth Group (Middle & High School) w/Solveij:
Today we talked about what tests and brings us hope, learned a song to remember our UU principles and started making wall hangings to represent the 8 Principles.
