Waldorf Education- 1st grade completed

We are officially finished with our school year, though I have plans to do a few lessons and reviews during the heat of summer. It gets really steamy here July & August, so it will be refreshing to stay in the cool indoors and read.

It has been a magical year! My girls have been going through their main lesson books and reading what they wrote way back in the fall, when it was all foreign to them!  So much development has happened and teeth have been lost. I thoroughly enjoyed the fairy tales and stories with colorful pictures and the way we felt into the letters.  The Math Gnomes are so playful and they help my girls so much remember what is what (they especially like minus and his ragged, holey clothes!)

What a journey this has been so far and I feel it is just the first few steps along a path to unfolding. Thank you for all that are following along with our homeschooling days.


  1. Congratulations, Donna! And thank you for sharing your journey with us - I've really enjoyed following along and am so happy we have become friends through our Waldorf homeschooling! You are an amazing momma and a wonderful friend!
    Hugs & yeah twins!

  2. So lovely to reflect upon the past year...we do a daily journal here, and we've been reflecting on it lately, as our own homeschool year comes to a close...but, the learning never stops!!
