second grade fables

I am really looking forward to sharing some of our school work here. We are going to be starting our 3rd year of Waldorf homeschooling in the autumn. (Fourth year if you count kindergarten, but I guess I'm not, as it was so informal.) This past year we did second grade with Chloe, while she was 8. We started off with a week of form drawing with Native American stories, and then did a language arts block of fables. I highly recommend the book Teaching with the Fables by Sieglinde de Francesca. It was my favorite resource for this block, so beautifully written and illustrated. (Her Coloring with Block Crayons book is wonderful too.) So here are some of Chloe's lesson book pages from that block.



I will be back soon to show some of what we did for our blocks on Stories of the Saints. I was one of our favorite parts of the year!

This is amazing work! Her writing is beautiful! We're gearing up to begin 2nd grade (we're also Waldorf homeschoolers). It is so exciting to encounter others whose paths are so similar!
