Supper and a Story

Today is the start of my Spring Break! First things first... the weekly menu and shop.

Another project for today: my NEW Online Curriculum Project.

Simply put, as much as I love to recommend books, some people just don't have access to the bookstores and books that would be common in the U.S. I had a client from India write to me and ask me to put together as many online links as possible for ages 3-8. The result is

The Online Curriculum Project: Early Childhood

The Online Curriculum Project: Grade 1

The Online Curriculum Project: Grade 2

Obviously this is a brand new project since I only started working on it today, so if you think of something I've missed, please send me a comment!

One of my favorite parts of this day has been looking back at Suzanne Down's monthly early childhood storytelling/puppetry newsletter. Here are some of the back issues (from my collection):

Natalie and Leah both had homework; Becca has been working on her geometric drawing (an equilateral triangle, figure 8, figure 9 from Sheen).

Geometry and the Imagination: The Imaginative Treatment of Geometry in Waldorf Education by A. Renwick Sheen (available free online at The Online Waldorf Library at the link above; purchase at the link below)

Geometry and the Imagination

equilateral (Latin), equal sides
isosceles (Greek), equal legs
scalene (Greek), limping, uneven

And, of couse, Zac is running around being almost-two and totally adorable.
Cozy. Lovely. Vacation.
