Class 7 with Ms. Kristi

 

Class Description

Class seven is full of discovery and exploration. The curriculum for the thirteen year old perfectly mirrors their inward changes as they outwardly explore the world. Their bodies are changing and they are looking for more freedom at home. They want to be trusted and want their parents to know they are capable.  They have a desire to understand history more deeply and are capable of seeing things from other perspectives.  This comes alive in their writing and art work this year.

Handwork With Ms. Maggie

 

The focus of handwork for Class 7 is the ancient art of felting. We will begin by learning the history of felting and exploring the uses of wool felt. After being introduced to this beautiful art, the students will make several projects throughout the year using both wet felting and needle felting techniques.

  

Eurythmy Inspired Movement With Ms. Tiffany

 

 

The theme of the Seventh grade is moody drama. We will work with this by working with the soul gestures of affirmation/negation and sympathy/antipathy. We will learn how to move through and occupy the etheric space around us as we learn to form walk with continuous forms. For tone, we will solidify basic tone gestures, work with sharps and flats, and work with major/minor chords and moods. For copper rods, we will dive deeper into advanced copper rod exercises fitted for the seventh grade.

Family Testimonial 

"Ms. Jaia has been such a huge help for our family this year.  I LOVE homeschooling my children. I have homeschooled them all. This year we just knew we needed another experience for our son. We have a busy business and with the reduced access to friends in 2020, we wanted him to have everything he needed socially.  We didn’t expect that he would become so connected, not only to the students but to Ms. Jaia. We couldn’t be more pleased. She is a true gem." ~ The Nielens
