I wrote a post about Sunday School a while back. I was really excited about this Sunday School...until we actually went. I liked it because of the fact that Princess was able to be around other Jewish kids so that she didn't feel like she was the only one. I also liked that it is humanistic (read Atheist). But the thing is that seeing these kids twice a month for September through June doesn't really build friendships.
The other reason I wanted Princess to go was to learn about some of the holidays and traditions that I have forgotten. The problem with that? Well, the first couple classes we worked on making calendars (the entire class time) and I knew more than the teacher about the names of the holidays and what the holidays were.
I teach a preschool and kindergarten age class at Village Home, our homeschool school. I know I could do a better job than this woman.
I'm not sure what the answer is. Maybe I just need to relearn the things I've forgotten and homeschool that the same way I homeschool everything else. Maybe I can invite the friends Princess has close relationships with already to learn with us. Maybe I could start a Yahoo group to find other Jewish Atheist families who want to get together, form relationships and have my own Sunday School.
I'm not sure where I'm going with this. I guess I just wanted to put it out there and see if anyone has any brilliant ideas.
