News from 3rd Grade
From the Classroom
The story from the Bible of the Fall from Paradise, was profound for many students. One student made the statement that they were glad that this happened, because now Adam and Eve could learn how to provide for themselves. These are the moments that remind me how lucky I am to teach this curriculum to this particular set of students. Most of your children are experiencing the "Fall from Paradise", as they transition through the "9-Year Change". To have such a revelation, is powerful and the reason that Rudolf Steiner felt so strongly about this type of a story, for this developmental age. This feeling is exactly why we bring the practical arts to the children.
This week we will be using clay to experience what it was like for Adam to name the animals. Through this experience, the children will learn about parts of speech such as naming words (Nouns), action words (Verbs), and describing words (Adjectives).
Thursday we will be loading into cars and heading off to pick apples at the Murnane's farm. If you have not signed a field trip form, find Sallie (Kenton's mom), and get that signed immediately!
