  1. After really looking into OM. I am really interested in Waldorf and learning more about it. From what I have read so far, I believe this is the way we need to be learning in our home. My son would really benefit from this approach. Now I just want to make sure I am going in the right directions. That I have all the information I need to start going with this approach. Thank you for any suggestions.
  2. So, I am looking at their site right now. I am a bit confused. To start off it will cost me a lot of money. What am I actually getting? I am looking into the 2nd grade program for next year. Do I have to purchase a separate math book? I don't see any workbooks, textbooks, etc? How is math taught with this program? Well any subject actually? Is there a lot of library books needed to complete this program? Or are the little bit of books included all that is used? I am pretty confused on this one. So, what does the TE just give me ideas on what I need to teach and expect me to expand off of that? Or am I given ideas of what to do? Is there detailed instructions on teaching new concepts? I am still iffy on being totally on my own, I feel as if I drop the ball a lot. Now I need some hand holding at times, ideas on what to do next, and structure. Would OM be right for me? Or should I keep on looking?
  3. Waldorfy-moms, So, I've been checking out the wonderful links found in the Waldorf threads here...I just ordered Painting with children by B. Muller and also Beyond the Rainbow bridge, and I am ready to order some waldorf style paints, which seem a bit different than the tube watercolors I have always used. Question- do you prefer the Divinci paints that Paper, Scissors, Stone sells or the Stockmar brand that A child's dream come true sells? And, why do you prefer it? also, any other books that would help me with art the Waldorf way and creating rhythm for your family/homeschool life? I have older kids, 3rd grade, 5th grade, 8th and 10th..I'm thinking more of the 3 kids in 3rd and 5th grade. I would love some suggestions on where to start- not making over my homeschool to all Waldorf, but incorporating rhythm/order/rituals and more artwork with our lessons. I noticed in my reading that Waldorf schools start the day baking bread together- this is very appealing to me,not sure if I can pull it off- but it sounds like a wonderful, soothing idea. I was thinking of starting by trying to bake muffins together in the morning for a later snack, and then having a more planned lunch with a set ritual or way of having lunch, and then doing more narrations with Waldorf art. Good start? Suggestions? Do any of you bake bread with your kids? :lurk5:
  4. I looked into Waldorf a few years ago- what I was looking for was information on putting rhythms into your school day. I only found books that dealt with young children. I am very schedule challenged, I really, really crave establishing some kind of peaceful rhythm for our day, my kids are 8, 11, 11, 13, 15 , I'm concerned mostly with the 3 youngest- but the older 2 might benefit from a sense of order. My question, can anyone recommend a blog or book that would show what learning rhythms/ season rhythms would look like, how to build them? without having to go the whole Waldorf curriculum style- I guess I want the feel, rhythm, celebrations, stories but still use our curriculum choices. anyone? I did check out the flower blog linked to in another post, beautiful blog and reasonable curriculum, but I think I've missed the boat, age-wise. my boys won't make wax figures for story-telling, I'm thinking, but they would do some seasonal crafts with me.
  5. My youngest will turn 2 next month. I'd like to start doing some things with him, not anything formal. More in the form of structured play. I'm interested in both Montessori and Waldorf. I'm looking for suggestions on what I should have around for him to use. I'm mostly looking for Montessori ideas since I've been able to find a ton of info on Waldorf. Any books I should read on the methods? Any cool blogs to check out? I'm a very visual person, so I love blogs with tons of pictures! Thank you!!
  6. How many families use Waldorf inspiration or curriculum in their schooling? I am wondering how many of us are here. :)
  7. I would like to get more waldorf-inspired myself :) I have three children: almost 9, 6 and almost 2. If you had about $100 to spend on each kid to get waldorfy, what would you buy? I don't mean just toys, but also books and art supplies and things like that. Thanks!
  8. Has anyone tried this: http://www.naturalfamily.50megs.com/ How did you like it? Would you purchase it again? How difficult is it to gather materials that are needed? I would love to try this with my toddler!!
  9. I don't know why, but at least once a year and usually around the holidays, I feel myself drawn to the Waldorf method! I wonder if that means I'm supposed to be using it :) Not just for education, but also around the house. Hmm... anyone else ever have this happen?
  10. I've discovered that while we love the idea of a classical education, it's not entirely what we want for our children at this stage. So we've started adding some Waldorf elements to our day, and things are so much more fun and exciting! But I'm exhausted trying to come up with ideas on my own. I've been interested in Oak Meadow for a while, but my husband told me last night that he thinks I should just go ahead and buy it as soon as we have the money. Yay! However, with the holidays upon us, it will probably be February before I have the funds to purchase it. I want to start doing as much as I can right now to ease the transition. Can anyone help me with the following questions? What does a week with Oak Meadow look like for a first grader? What can I do now to start the transition? Thanks!
  11. Which one do you like? What should I look into? This is for my ds 6 and my dd 9, next year. Thanks!
  12. I love the idea behind Waldorf math, but have a hard time actually implementing it. I just found this and am soooo excited: http://www.mathbyhand.com/index.html Has anyone heard of this, or used it? I haven't looked at the prices yet, I just discovered the site.
  13. I admit if I could afford it I'd put two of my kids in the Waldorf school. I'm curious how you integrate Waldorf in your school.
  14. I've moved to a new area and met some new homeschoolers here. Most of them seem to be trying to employ the Steiner method for their homeschool. I'd like to get a book on it to have some idea of what they're doing. I've read what I can find on-line about the philosophy and wouldn't want to switch to it entirely, but maybe there are some nuggets that I could find to integrate into our schooling. Even if it's not for me, I'd still like to understand it so I can converse with these other moms.
  15. Can you buy the craft kit and some sort of guide for the crafts and recorder? Their kits look awesome, but I am very happy with my current curriculum. Thanks Oh I'm looking at the k-3 kits.
  16. Just wondering how many out there agree with Steiner/Montessori's ideas about education for Kindergarten through 1st or 2nd grade (or further?) I don't mean the origin of their ideas, but what they are in practice.
  17. ....without using the actual curriculum? I'm specifically referring to the Heart of Learning and Home Teacher's Process Manual. I was thinking of using them to add an OM/Waldorf flavor to our days. I don't think the actual curriculum would work well for us. However, when looking at the grade 1 and grade 2 samples I saw that many times the instructions refer the teacher to HOL or HTPM for specific instructions (e.g. for form drawing or wet watercolors). So... what do you think? Could this work for us? Any other ideas? p.s. fwiw, here's what the rest of my plan looks like: Phonics - real books, supplementing with Happy Phonics Math - games-based living math supplementing with Math Mammoth Science - nature study, wilderness survival, astronomy, as well as "Elements of the Universe" for 7 yo DD. History - world cultures & folklore, highlights of early US History (all of this using picture books) Art - ? Probably continue with Artistic Pursuits Music - Beginning Recorder
  18. It was recomended in my first post that I should get the Christopherus form drawing book. Does the Christopherus book teach coloring with block crayons like this book? http://www.amazon.com/Coloring-Crayons-Emphasizing-Primary-Colors/dp/B000YI6AKM Or does the Christopherus only teach the forms? I would really like my dc to learn how to make drawing like these- http://www.youtube.com/alittlegardenflower#p/u/4/Zqnb39BxgWI Do I need the Christopherus form book and the Coloring with Block Crayons book/DVD?
  19. I've been reading the recent Waldorf threads, and they've piqued my interest. I've also done some reading on CM, which also appeals to me. Other than the spiritual aspect, I'm a little confused as to the differences between the two. They seem very similar. Or maybe I just need more coffee. :001_huh: Can anyone compare/contrast these for me? Thanks!
  20. I'm interested in doing form drawing with my dc. Are there a daily or weekly teachers guide or plans I can follow? I know absolutely nothing about form drawing other that what I have read at some Waldorf web sites. I really need at least weekly lesson plans. I am terrible at trying to schedule stuff on my own. My dc will be in k and 1st this fall.
  21. Would you mind telling me about what you use? So far, we have been a very Waldorf inspired family and there is so so much that I love about Waldorf. On the other hand, I have lately been feeling like I want to add some more Classical resources in for next year, particularly for my son who will be in third grade. It's so funny because I haven't been to this forum in a while, but I came yesterday just to look around and saw a few threads about Waldorf! It must be a sign!
  22. This happened to me last year-I checked out every type of Waldorf curriculum out there. Now I'm looking at Christopherus again. :confused: I know it's either Spring fever, or something, but even though it seems easier, it's actually harder for me to do-so why am I drawn to it???
  23. Anyone use or see this curriculum? I'm thinking about it for one of my children for the upcoming year.
  24. Can I post this? I couldn't find a social group (go to the community "button" above) for Waldorf inspired homeschoolers. Anyone want to chat on there?
