Second Grade Waldorf Living Lessons Curriculum Package – Lifetime Access

USD $750.00

(Looking for options without all the living lessons?)
Second Grade Core Bundle: $75.00 HERE
Second Grade Curriculum Package: $175.00 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…

Description

Living Lessons included in this Second Grade Package

This collection is always growing! When you make your payment you are only paying for the Living Lessons and curriculum listed below. This means that the price may increase for this listing as we add more lessons. However, once you make your purchase you automatically receive access to all the lessons listed below and all the future lessons as well! Once you enroll you retain access to the Second Grade Living Lessons for life and will never pay for future Second Grade Living Lessons not currently listed on this page.

We will update this list as we add more lessons. Currently the following lessons are included (all of these have been provided by Waldorf teacher Simone and teacher Amy Williams. See “Our Team” for more information)

Already included in this package are all the same benefits you receive with our traditional Earthschooling Curriculum Package below..

Theme: Strong Likes and Dislikes. Cultivating and Guiding the Will

Second graders are at the age when they begin to have strong likes and dislikes. Eight-year-olds react strongly to imagery in the fables and in stories of saints. They hear fables and stories of legendary characters such as saints. These stories teach of human fallibility and present a model for overcoming adversity. Reading opens a new world of words, and the children begin to master the multiplication tables. Second graders continue to paint and explore Nature, and present their first dramatic play.

They learn to crochet and play the pentatonic flute. This curriculum includes the following blocks: Second Grade Handwork Block, Second Grade Language Block, Second Grade Math Block, Second Grade Form Drawing Block, Second Grade Arts, Crafts and Stories Block, Second Grade Music Block and Monthly Enrichment Lesson Book. It also contains many extras such as G2 Saints Chalk Drawing (Video), Second Grade Supply List, Second Grade Schedule, German and Spanish Main Lesson Book Samples. 

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.
