A Little Garden Flower Curriculum Sampler

Melisa Nielsen, founder of A Little Garden Flower Curriculum, was kind enough to put together a 60-paged PDF file of her curriculum, ranging from samples of her day planner for Waldorf homeschooling mothers to “Before the Journey” (that time before Kindergarten), and then Kindergarten to Grade Six, plus the math 1-5 grades book and the geometry book.

Many of her books come in e-book format and her prices are very reasonable.  She also runs a very active Yahoo!group that tackles all things Waldorf.

Here is the link for the PDF sampler: http://www.beaconmama.com/sampler.pdf

Many blessings,

  1. Hi Carrie,
    I have been reading your blog for a year now and really enjoy it. I also have been doing lots of research and trying to decide which curriculum to use as a guide. I have both Donna Simmons and Melisa Neilson books.
    In one of your post you talk about a 3 day rhythm- story, art, write. Both of these woman use only a 2 day rhythm and that is where I am confused. Any thoughts would be most helpful.

    • Yes, I believe both do due to home not being school, prob a bit of a faster pace in some ways at home, and also because with homeschooling we generally think doing a four day week until the upper grades…
      Does that help? I like a three day rhythm myself, and to just finish up that last academic piece on Friday morning (ie, not do a whole day) but I think to each his own! 🙂
