School Year Prep

We aren't only counting down until the eclipse around here... there is also a school year happening some time soon!

Our first day of the homeschool co-op is August 28th. I've been purchasing school supplies (plan books, main lesson books, colored pencils, gratitude journals, creative writing journals, art portfolios, fountain pens) and curriculum materials (Montessori R&D's Word Study Materials, Hello Wood's Teaching Clock, and the Grammar Game by Mandala Classroom Resources).


We also continue to be blessed by donations of art supplies from my good friend Leslie. She has assured me that her art room is now perfectly clean and organized and she loves it this way; I am just amazed at her generosity!


This year my 12/13 year old group is doing the following MLBs:

    Physics: Simple Machines

    Creative Writing

    Algebra I

    Age of Exploration

    Human Anatomy & Physiology I

    Norse Mythology I

    Geometry

    World Geography

    Human Anatomy & Physiology II

    Norse Mythology II

    Algebra II

    Renaissance & Reformation


If anyone else is teaching any of these blocks, please write and share your favorite curriculum resources!

"Foundations of Waldorf Education" Series Notes

I am constantly bumping into books from this series, and I keep seeing the volume number and thinking, "Oh! I am really reading these out of order."

So I have decided to make a list of the books, in order, and include links to any of them which are online for free. And I found out that almost all of them are! I am currently reading The Spirit of the Waldorf School because of an endnote reference we ran into at our Book Group. Steiner was such a prolific writer and speaker that it seems I am constantly chasing down other things of his in order to fully understand whatever I'm currently studying.

Anyway, here is what I have so far. The image doubles as a link to buy the book. I've also included links to read the books for free, where applicable:


I'm really curious as to what Volume 23 and 24 are! If anyone finds that out, please leave a comment!
