Kindergarten Curriculum Package: $150.00 HERE

These NEW Living Lesson Packages include everything that is in our Earthschooling Curriculum Packages but they go above and beyond by also providing you with Living Lessons. Living Lessons are video lessons where a teacher leads the class through a variety of main lessons, specialized lessons, stories, handwork, crafts, painting, form drawing, music, and more! You can use these lessons as examples to follow for your own teaching or can use them as supplements to your own teaching (we all need a break now and then. I would have loved to have these available on days I was ill or was taking care of my fussy baby). See free samples and full description below…

Theme: The Bridge Between Family and Social Life. Cultivate Social Skills

The Waldorf Kindergarten is the bridge between family and school life. The Kindergarten child learns through imitative and creative play in a warm, homelike environment, using cloths and simple natural materials. Social skills are developed as children play side by side, listening and sharing and helping one another. If your child is learning at home social skills can be cultivated with parents, relatives, and siblings through play, interaction and modeling. Rest and circle time follow morning free play and cleanup.

The teacher leads games, poems, seasonal songs and little dramas, which work in the children to integrate their whole being. A snack at the lovely table set with candles is preceded by a blessing, then everyone moves outside for playtime. Each day has an artistic activity which creates a soothing weekly rhythm for the child. Activities include watercolor painting, drawing, beeswax modeling, seasonal crafts, sewing and finger knitting. Hearing a fairy tale, acting it out, or seeing a puppet play completes the morning. Capable and loving teachers specializing in education for the early years plan the school life with the child’s special talents and needs in mind.

All of your curriculum materials including mp3s and video tutorials are available through a teacher portal immediately after you make your purchase. You can read more about how this works here.
