Our lessons are flowing along smoothly!
We have begun the language arts block, gymnastics class and I have added an Ojibwe language lesson. We also do a yoga series in the afternoon and include the little ones. This gets our blood flowing!
Also, although Waldorf curriculums include lessons on recorder, My daughter has been taking guitar lessons, and she prefers the guitar so I think I will stick with that. Perhaps I will bring back the recorder in the spring.
For french, we use Mango but for Ojibwe I am using a website titled: Anishnaabemowin. I will go through the lessons as provided, starting with greetings and numbers.
