**What are Living Lessons?**

Living Lessons are not an online school. Our goal is and always has been to assist the parent/teacher in their own classroom. We also feel it is important that the parent/teacher remains involved in the lessons to stay true to the Waldorf methods. So Living Lessons are a classroom assistant for you and a way for you to become a better teacher by having another teacher lead, guide, and inspire you. Here are some ways in which you may use the Living Lessons:

1. You are homeschooling multiple ages and need a virtual teacher now and then so you can offer each of your students individual attention.

2. You are looking for a virtual classroom experience with a Waldorf teacher.

3. You need a break now and then from homeschooling full time.

4. You want to enhance your own skill set by watching other teachers present Waldorf lessons.

5. You want to join a community of other parents experiencing *Living Lessons* with opportunities for your kids to connect with other kids in the program.

6. You are running a business or working from home and need a virtual teacher to help you homeschool.

7. You recently moved or are experiencing health challenges that make it hard to homeschool full time.

8. You are new to homeschooling and need a boost of confidence to start off your year.

9. You are new to Waldorf education.

10. You feel overwhelmed with the prospect of homeschooling or you have been forced into homeschooling by the pandemic and are feeling lost.

**Second Grade Math Block with Waldorf Teacher Mellie**

**Lesson 1: The 2 Times Tables**

Teacher: Mellie Lonnemann

Length: 18:44

Welcome to our second-grade math block! We’ll start off by learning a verse which we’ll be reciting at the start of each lesson. Next we will sing a song to help us review our 2 times-tables all the way up to 24. We’ll do some chalkboard practice with our 2’s, then we’ll do a more tangible exercise where we count rocks, or whichever small objects you can use to count with. We will focus on the relationship between 14, 7, and 2. We will work our math equations back and forth so that we may thoroughly understand why they yield the answers that they do. Next we’ll practice an activity called Best Friend’s Ten, which gives us a visual and physical way to remember which numbers add up to ten. For example – 8 and 2 are best friends because they make 10! 7 and 3 are best friends because they make 10! The incorporation of creativity and art is important in each aspect of learning, so we’ll do a crayon drawing of our Best Friend’s Ten in our main lesson book.

- Morning verse
- 2’s song
- 2 times-tables

In this lesson, we’ll be reviewing our 2 times-tables and learning about our 3 times-tables. In this block repetition is of utmost importance. We will start off doing our morning verse, then we’ll review our 2’s song from the previous lesson. After this, we’ll get out our counting rocks so we can visualize the 2 times-tables. Then it will be time for our rhythmic movement activity. Teacher Mellie will first show the hand clapping pattern, then she will go over each of the 2 times-tables with the clapping pattern. Next, we’ll introduce the 3 times-tables, and we’ll play a chalkboard game. Then we’ll try some word problems so we can apply what we’re learning to real life situations. After our word problems we’ll quickly review our Best Friend’s Ten activity. Then we’ll create another piece of art in our main lesson book. This time we’ll be drawing a geometric shape to help us better understand our 2 times-tables, and we’ll use the other side of the page to write out our 2 times-tables.
