Hm, just starting out this blogg, partly to share ideas with other Handwork teachers, and partly to keep track of my classes for future use. It sometimes feels as though I am alone out there in the handwork world feeling my way through, but lately I have found so much help by others' bloggs, that I thought I should share my knowledge as well. Whatever helps us be better teachers, and understand the umportance of Handwork in any curriculum (not just Waldorf!).
This will take me some time, as I dislike being on the computer too much, and am too busy anyway, but I will try. I hope in the near future to have pictures posted, ideas listed, and tips to share!
This year I am only teaching 5th through 8th grades. I released on the first 4 to my lovely co-worker and handwork genious Dianne. We collaborate on all grades, but only are present in our own...sometimes we plan on buddying up and doing seasonal projects together, older classes with their younger buddies. (I lessened my load in order to help launch my beautiful boy into the wonders of High School, and he is thriving! More on that experience later, too!)
