Note: Once you have completed Block One you can do the rest of the year’s blocks in any order.
These Block Ten 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 May are included in Block Ten. 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 Ten reviews the letters G, J, T, M, N, V, W, A, E, I, O, U & Y in a more advanced manner. However, the lessons in this month can also be used to introduce students to these letters for the first time. Students knit a teddy bear with a scarf this month, make a bag, work on form drawing stories, perform a play, do some origami, learn four pentatonic recorder songs using the unique and easy Earthschooling method, and learn to cook four different items in the kitchen including bagels. This block also covers some advanced language learning activities for those students that already know the alphabet. Students will enjoy many wonderful stories this month as always.
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: Mothers, Mentors, Gift Baskets and Mayfair Week (activities which can be converted to celebrate Mayfair or any holiday any time of the year)
