I took the plunge a few weeks ago and ordered a syllabus for first grade. Logan will be beginning this September, just after his 7th birthday. He is over-the-moon excited by this!
I was astonished at how thick the whole package ended up being. It looks incredibly thorough. I’ve since been sitting down with it on a near daily basis to try and read through it a little bit at a time. I’m trying to figure out the scheduling, and how to work out a daily plan. As I’m learning – I almost need those little daily task lists in order to keep on target. I’m considering going through and sort of “doing” the lessons, so I can reacquaint my mind with the work of a first grader, and learn how the first grade is done in Waldorf Education. So far I am in love with how Donna Simmons has put this entire thing together.
Ever since we got the paints, Lilly has been asking me repeatedly if she could paint. I need to get a ton of painting paper ordered, as well as two or three paintbrushes. I also need to go by a hardware store and pick up some sheets of plywood so I can make some painting boards!
