This fifth grade block unit is part of our new “daily planner” series. In this series every lesson is planned out for you in detail for every part of the day, 5-days a week. Feedback from members is that this makes Waldorf education “very easy” and “effortless” for them. It also makes working with multiple ages a breeze as each grade of these blocks has a parallel schedule.
This first block focuses on Ancient India with a supporting lesson block that introduces the student to their first lessons in botany. Verses as well as handwork and art projects from India are included in this block.
This block also contains some suggestions for August and can be used as an August lesson block. However, it can also be easily used any time of year (it is not dependent on the month) and can be used “out of order” as well. Although this is “block one” it can be used as any block in your curriculum. Each of these blocks is planned out according to a 30-day month. However, you can extend the lessons beyond the month if you want to.
All of these lessons include instructions, stories, gorgeous pictures you can recreate for your classroom and more. All you need to do is “open and go” with this lesson block. We have done all the rhythm and planning work for you, we have even arranged lessons in a rotation of “head, heart & hands”.
As an extra bonus all of these block schedules fit seamlessly with the schedules from all our other grades so teaching multiple ages together becomes much easier!
