Waldorf Homeschooling Part 2: Learning to Let Go

On this week’s Sunday With Sarah I share further thoughts on Waldorf homeschooling, and the lessons I learned when I began to let go of sticking with a prescribed curriculum, and the idea of “Waldorf School at home.”

If you use a curriculum, how strictly do you follow it? Do you combine resources? Are you an unschooler? Please share what works for you!

Waldorf Homeschooling: How to Choose a Curriculum

This week on Sunday With Sarah I share my thoughts on a few well-established curriculum resources for homeschoolers wishing to incorporate Waldorf methods.

Resources:

Oak Meadow – A more mainstream homeschool curriculum with a Waldorf flavor.

Live Education – A curriculum developed by Waldorf class teachers. Waldorf school at home.

Christopherus Homeschool Resources – Developed by a Waldorf-educated, Waldorf-trained, homeschooling mother of two, who knows what it’s like to juggle being a mom, running a household, and educating one’s children. Highly recommended.

LifeWays North America – A wonderful resource for parents of children birth to age six. Offers a training program for parents and home caregivers, and a wonderful newsletter full of information.

Are you a homeschooler? An Unschooler? Do you use a curriculum? What’s working for you? Share your thoughts, suggestions, and questions here!
