There is a relatively new forum called “Homespun Waldorf”, put together and run by a group of experienced homeschooling mothers. I don’t get to personally participate a lot due to time restraints, but I have noticed many threads zooming around on there about combining grades and how to do it from veteran homeschooling mothers. It may be helpful to some of you who are thinking that you need to teach separate main lesson blocks for everyone in your family; that truly is not the case. The number of children in your family is akin to the social environment created in a school classroom; you really can get to know your family and what will work best for them all as a group and as individuals. Homeschooling rarely looks like it does in a school setting. We are at home. Our homeschooling experience is first and foremost about family, about the things that unify us as a family in love, the activities we do as a family… and the learning in love as well, of course.
At any rate, without further ado, here is the link so you can join yourself:
Kudos to Sarah for starting this and to all the volunteers who keep it running!
Hope that helps some of you who are planning,
