Monthly Guides are back!

In the words of Lisa Boisvert Mackenzie:

“I am so very excited to share with you the news of the return of the Celebrating the Rhythm of Life in Caring for Children through the Year materials.  The new format retains all of the elements you love with some expansion in a few areas. I’ve been striving to keep it all very simple, easy for you to read and digest. I have also made it more process and community oriented this time around.”

The material will be available in a packet (pdf) and online along with the rest of the program. Participants may sign up for the month or for the school year, from September to July

Storytelling with Children is the focus topic for September. We’ll explore why stories are so important to children and what is the Waldorf pedagogy behind it, make a table puppet, sketch out puppet stories for the school year, set up a “stage” and practice telling puppet story to children, support each other and look at resources for puppet story as well as  how to create community where you live around puppet story.

  20. Faith Murphy says:

    This is absolutely wonderful! I did a parent/child program at our local Waldorf school last year. I really wanted to do it again, however we are strapped for cash and our trying to save to buy a home. I’ve been meeting regularly with the friends we made at Waldorf and we have been talking about doing a Waldorf program together in our homes. When I stumbled across your site I was so excited! These are exactly the tools we need to do this at home. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge with us! Your history with the Waldorf program is so inspiring! I hope I can follow in your footsteps.

    Much love,

      Hi Nicole, it’s a great program and a lovely group of moms and very process oriented. You do get the Packets with the materials and have a discussion group for support and feedback to help implement rhythm and stories and circle into your life. We are making table puppets too. Lots of fun.
