What makes it Waldorf?

There has been a lot of buzz lately about Waldorf or Waldorf inspired and who can really use that word and who can’t and I find it really comes down to MOM.  Mom understanding what makes something Waldorf.  I honestly try not to play the “is it Waldorf enough” game.  I find that comparison very negative and find it stops up our growth when

Beginning zoology… (from the archives)

From the archives, October 2008 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ To start the zoology block for grade four, it can be helpful to discuss the differences between a rock, a seed/plant and then an animal.  I like to let this unfold by asking questions like “What is this rock? how is it different from the seed?”  Once they understand the line of questioning, it is easy to pick
