our third grade
In third grade we study how the human being comes to live on and interact with the Earth. We start with the Hebrew Legends. We will hear stories of the creation, Noah, the Israelites and Moses, and End with the kings. These stories meet the children as they go through the nine year change and go through their own transformation of childhood.
The children now begin to see themselves as being a part of humankind and stewards of the Earth. The children learn practical skills of living on Earth. They learn house building in our shelters block. They will learn about clothing through the fibers and textiles block. They will learn how to grow food in our farming block. The children will also learn measurement, time, and money. They will continue to build on their arithmetic skills in the math blocks.
Third grade is one of my favorite curriculum's in the Waldorf Schools and I am so excited to bring it to the children this year!
