Ms. Dean's 1st grade class celebrated Easter last week by making watercolor painted "eggs." Students used red and yellow while painting, allowing them to mix the colors and discover a beautiful orange!
The third grade students spent time studying and discussing all sorts of different homes created by early humans, who used the materials they found around them for their shelters.

Through this study, students were led through the exercise of choosing a shelter, drawing a plan, creating a supply list, and constructing their own 3D model version of it using any imaginative combination of natural materials.
Each morning, students in second grade have an opportunity to play, socialize, and create. Look at a few of the amazing structures our second graders have built together!
Ms. Clark's second grade class worked on their sewing skills and made envelopes to hold all of their cards they got for Valentine's Day.
Both 5th grade classes went on a field trip to Bogus Basin. Students were able to learn how snowshoe as well as attend Bogus Basin Snow School. This program supports our 5th grade Botany blocks through the exploration of coniferous trees native to
Idaho (Ponderosa Pine and Douglas Fir) as well as opportunities to
identify moss and lichen, which we previously studied.

The first graders have been working on their stitching skills in handwork: understanding the front and back of their work, threading a needle, tying knots, tension, stitch length, composition and design. Here we have taken our golden wool and embroidered flowers to honor the last few days of bright sun and the seeds of love we carry within us. Into these little pouches, we will place a sunflower seed to plant in our own gardens.

“Now I have my sword of light, so that I may do what is good and right. I will never use it for some silly quarrel or fight. I will protect those weaker than I, I will cast away all that is not good I will always try!”

For the Festival of Courage, the Mountain Bluebird and Mighty Oaks Kindergarten classes worked hard sanding and painting their swords of light. They dyed their capes a golden hue, from starlight delivered by the knight Michael. And they made dragon breads on baking day.

“Farmer John, Farmer true, here is a basket of wool for you! Won’t you help our hands to weave, won’t you help us make a blanket please!”

Our AM and PM kindergarten classes have been weaving mini blankets, and oh how lovely these little blankets turned out.

The 3rd Grade studied money as part of a math block. They were introduced to basic economics by making items to sell. They used play money but got to keep what they purchased—lessons in making change, setting a price, and spending wisely were results from the experience. No buyer's remorse and a ton of fun!

Form drawing is a subject that is unique to Waldorf schools. Many teachers say that it is the most important subject that your child will learn in first grade, as the straight and curved lines form the foundation for letters. In form drawing, children look at forms and then reproduce them - by making the shapes with their bodies, by “drawing” in the air, by sometimes practicing with chalk on a board, and then finally drawing with a crayon on paper.

The sixth grade class just finished their geology block with a field trip to Jump Creek Falls.

Rudolph Steiner noted it is not until the age of 12 that a child can grasp causality or cause and effect; this ability opens up a new way to approach subject matter. In Geology, for example, the sixth graders not only sharpen their observations of the world around them, but also study how the movement of the earth changes the landscape and its inhabitants, and how our actions in the present will shape the world in the future.
