Preparing for Grade Four

Sunday, July 1, 2012 - Friday, July 6, 2012

Meet the inner life of the fourth grade child by reacquainting yourself with the stories and lessons of Norse mythology. You’ll discover the gesture and rhythm of the year, learn ways of making language arts, grammar, and fractions captivating and understandable to your students, participate in child study discussions, and acquire much practical information.Topics covered include how to introduce your students to the study of geography and how to help them represent three-dimensional space on a map. You’ll have ample time each day to explore artistic activities, and an hour each day will be devoted to teacher-facilitated discussion groups, targeted to both new and experienced teachers, on topics drawn from the teachings of Rudolf Steiner and relevant to the participants.

Instructor Patrice Maynard, an experienced class teacher, took one class through a complete cycle of eight grades and a second class through ninth grade at Hawthorne Valley Waldorf School. Patrice is currently the leader for Outreach and Development of the Association of Waldorf Schools of North America (AWSNA) and is the elected secretary of the Board of the Council for American Private Education (CAPE).
