I broke my “no-photographs” rule simply because there are not many blogs with examples of Waldorf Second Grade and I wanted to show some sample works.
January: More poetry. Snowy Village Math from Marsha Johnson’s files and I told Russian Fairy Tales at the end of the Math lessons (also from Marsha Johnson), cooking, singing and pennywhistle – here we again went over place value, carrying and borrowing and multiplication and division
Russian alphabet to go with Russian fairy tales:
February: Saints and Heroes from Donna Simmons and a few I picked based on Donna’s suggestions in the back of this book; special attention to word families, writing, painting and drawing – one of these shows just a simple summary because we did a wet-on-wet painting as our artistic work for Finn MacCool. Math rested during this month except for daily practice of math in Circle Time.
March: Math – mixture of Melisa Nielsen’s Math Ebook and Donna Simmons’ Second Grade math; math skills as above along with money.
The week around Saint Patrick’s Day we did The Leprechuan Factor Trees of Ireland from Marsha Johnson’s files, first with a lovely drawing before we made our addition factor trees:
And then those wild little leprechuans traveled to the mysterious Multiplication Island where the multiplication factor trees grow; a TROPICAL island in the middle of an Irish lake..LOL. Here is a leprechuan cobbling shoes on the back of a giraffe!
March was also Lent and crafts, weekly form drawing, wet on wet painting, the story of Saint Patrick.
April: We did a block on Earth, Water, Fire and Air – I used stories from http://www.mainlesson.com , including one I found on Saint Kentigern and The Robin that involved the element of fire, lots of hands-on activities, weekly form drawing, pennywhistle and singing, math rested.
May: Math from Marsha Johnson’s files using “Watercraft of the World” as a theme, more poetry and singing and pennywhistle, wet on wet painting, weekly form drawing, gardening.
Here we counted dates and grouped them in twos and fives, and re-visited our three, four and six times table with the help of our hippo friends and the sails..… (these are dates along the top of this picture that we were counting - we were working with the two-sailed lateens that sailed along the Nile River, and the dates and barley that were agricultural products in this area). Note the hasty work in this drawing compared to the other drawings… you can really tell the difference between outlining and just building the picture up in layers with the crayon.
June: Saints from “Stories of the Saints” , review of work
Anyway, hope that helps provide a few resources for next year for those of you with rising second-graders.
