Note: Once you have completed Block One you can do the rest of the year’s blocks in any order.
These Block Nine lessons for first grade include lesson plans for math, language, and/or science for each day of the month (across the entire year the first grader covers all subjects). Each month’s plans are also filled with stories, verses, recipes, pentatonic recorder lessons, handwork lessons, pictures, natural crafts and nature walk ideas. Each day of the month is planned out for you in detail. You will not need to purchase any additional books or lessons to enjoy a full complete month of first grade!
Holiday and seasonal activities for April are included in Block Nine. However, they are provided as extras so if you are living in an area of the world where the season is different or you don’t celebrate a certain holiday you will not be left out – you will still have a full month of activities!
SPECIFICS: Block Nine reviews the letters B, P, R, D, L, H, C, K, Q, X, E, F, S and Z in a more advanced manner. However, you can also use these lessons to teach students the letters for the first time. Students will knit a hanging decoration this month, make soap and lip balm, learn a finger-knitting story and knit a basket, will learn two pentatonic recorder songs using the unique easy Earthschooling method, make a fun woodworking game, learn to cook four different items in the kitchen including Lentil Soup and Homemade Graham Crackers and more. April also covers some advanced language learning activities for those students that already know the alphabet.
This monthly block also comes with mp3s for the basic verses, mp3s for the monthly verses, and three teacher support documents: Waldorf 101, My Waldorf Year Planner and Waldorf Basics.
Themes this month include: Jokesters & Pranks, Herbs, The Earth and Recycling.
