Note: Once you have completed Block One you can do the rest of the year’s blocks in any order.
If you are using these monthly blocks we recommend starting with the Block One (could be used for the month of August) and then doing any month of the year after that (you do not need to teach these blocks in order, we just recommend that you start with Block One)
Holiday and seasonal activities for August are included in Block One. 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!
These Block One 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!
SPECIFICS: Block One covers a different form each week for the student’s Form Drawing Main Lesson Book and covers the sounds of vowels in wonderfully creative detail. Students this month will also learn how to knit using a beautiful knitting story and practice lessons. Students will learn how to make a special soup and three of the cornerstone breads we will be using this year. Students will also be introduced to the pentatonic recorder through beautiful stories and unique pentatonic recorder cards. Students will enjoy many wonderful stories as always and much more! Pictures are included with each lesson to guide the teacher.
Themes this month include: Rhythm, Time, Guides and Crops & Harvest
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.
