My sweet toddler is under the weather and so am I; I hope all of you are faring healthy out there! Working on stocking stuffers and gifts?
I found a few links I wanted to share with you this weekend that I thought were well- worth a read and a look:
I, too, am baffled by this thought that Waldorf Education is somehow not academically rigorous. This comes up on many general homeschooling forums and lists, and I still don’t understand it. Has anyone on these lists looked at the grades curriculum? At any rate, here is an interesting and brief look at this topic by another author: http://ssagarin.blogspot.com/2011_12_01_archive.html
I especially like Melisa Nielsen’s post here about the unhealthy home life and what to do about it: http://waldorfjourney.typepad.com/a_journey_through_waldorf/2011/12/love-and-respect.html
New knitting patterns: http://www.teaandpost.com/wanderings/ Very sweet!
Eileen’s post on “So You Can’t Afford A Waldorf School” is an interesting look at a common comment: http://eileensplace.blogspot.com/2011/12/so-you-cant-afford-waldorf-school.html
And Rebecca’s post on “Compassion For All”: http://bendingbirches2010.blogspot.com/2011/12/compassion-for-all.html
Many blessings to you,
