We are slowly making our way through our Grade Two Saints and Heroes block (trying to take the time to enjoy being outside more before returning to the city). This week we heard a story about Hiawatha, the bringer of peace. We made Iroquois longhouse dioramas with nature items we gathered from our land and peace necklaces with wampum we found last summer on Chappaquidick. #winlowoaksschool#waldorfhomeschool#wampum#saintsandheroes
This week, as we continue our Saints and Heroes language block, we've read about Hiawatha and Saints Francis and Clare. In honor of Clare, we spent time today making cards for patients at our local children's hospital. Ella loved drawing pictures and adding jokes and kind words to hopefully brighten someone's day.
We started our Saints and Heroes block last week. Ella has been writing and creating some lovely pages in her main lesson book, working on spelling, and also doing a variety of language activities, her favorite being consonant blend hopscotch. We have been painting, modeling, knitting, and reading as well.
