Note: Once you have completed Block One you can do the rest of the year’s blocks in any order.
These Block Eight 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 March are included in Block Eight. 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: In Block Eight students will continue to learn about the four processes of math and will learn some stories unique to Earthschooling that introduce them to the four processes of math from a seasonal and temperament perspective. Students already learned about “math gnomes” in Block Six. This month they will go beyond math gnomes and continue to practice what they have learned about the four processes of math. The numbers 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 & 10 will also be explored in greater detail. Students will knit a purse, will make a “sprite in a shell” and will complete other handwork projects as well. Students will learn two new pentatonic recorder songs using the unique Earthschooling method and will continue to enjoy wonderful stories and verses each week.
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 for this month include: The Wind, The Irish, Picnics, & Rainbows.
