Waldorf Links

In honor of announcing our switch from Classical to Waldorf/Classical, I have added a list of helpful Waldorf links. Enjoy.

Great! I look forward to how this works for you! *Ü*

Hoping you have a wonderful week!


PS. are you done with TOG or taking a break... using it at a slower pace??

I am keeping my TOG but taking a bit of a break. It is a wonderful resource and I plan on using it more in grades 5+. Right now we want to just explore at our own pace.

Thanks for stopping by.

us too... but we will be in full swing again after our Christmas break. We begin unit 2. We are about 5 or 6 weeks behind my original schedule.... but decided a week or 2 ago... I dont mind! *Ü*

I took a break with RyLee in her 4th grade year and didnt push her last year either.... It was good for her... it did give her time for other things... even non school related.

Thanks for the encouragement. Sometimes you get so torn between trying to make sure they have an opportunity to learn all they "need" to know and letting them grow and sprout on their own. We need to hear more about letting our children take their time and that it does them good. Thanks.

I hear ya! I feel the same way.... I know I will always use TOG, but I also know that I do want my kids have their own interests and try to help them develop that as well. I feel this time we have them at home is wasted if we don’t.... it really is a perk to home schooling and having them home.

TOG takes time, and it is worth every minute, but if I or the kids start to glaze over... we need to step back and just "be" for a bit... not stop education... but just take a rabbit trail, a different trail or lighten up.

It’s taken me so long to realize this and remember to not set myself up to any standard other than to my own for my kids. *Ü*

Knowing you all need a bit of a break and actually do it is courageous and insightful. You are doing a great job mom...*Ü*

Have an awesome day!
