Waldorf Inspired Kindergarten Homeschool - Lesson Plan for Week of December 1 | From Blue Bells and Cockle Shells
This is the Waldorf kindergarten homeschool lesson plan that we will be using for the week of December 1st. Please note that this is not for next week, as we will be taking next week off for Thanksgiving.If you missed my first week’s post about our Waldorf kindergarten homeschool lesson plans, the books needed to complete our year of lesson plans are listed at the bottom of this post. I will continue to post these lesson plans on Thursdays of the week before they are meant to be used, so that you can be sure you have all the supplies you need to do these with us, if you’d like to join us.
How did your homeschooling go this week?
We recovered from our colds and had a good week this week, though I am looking forward to having next week off. I seem to be behind on a million projects!
