waldorf school


I am adventuring down a long road-going to school-trying to get a waldorf teaching certificate.
I started school 2 weeks ago and so far I am loving it!!-There is a lot to soak in, a lot of new concepts and ideas swirling around in my head but It is a real nice change to my very busy week.

Here is what I made in my knitting class.
The first week we made our own knitting needles. We cut the dowel rods, sanded them down, and polished with beeswax-then she taught the class to knit. (because I have been knitting so long, I went ahead and finished the sleeping bag and made the doll)

believe it or not, this is what the kids will make in first grade at the Chicago Waldorf School-wow!!!!

Congrats on starting this journey! What fun it must be to get certified as a Waldorf teacher, so many creative projects you get to master.

It's so cool that you made your own needles! That must have felt so rewarding!

Very cool! And very exciting!

I subbed at our church's Montessori school last week. It was interesting to see all the different methods used in instructing the kids.
