Welcome to the Sun Garden, a class full of beauty, rhythm and fun activities for the summer-time. This class is for the rising Kinder, Grade One or Grade Two student that is looking for fun things to do to bridge their time from one school year to the next while keeping a weekly rhythm.This class will provide parents and caregivers with three full weeks of summer-time activity curriculum for the July and August months (July 10-28 and August 7-25). This curriculum will not be focused on academics as those are at rest during the summer, however it will focus on story telling and puppet plays, handwork, painting, modeling with different materials, drawing, a knitting project, and sewing. We will also focus on movement and I will share different outside activity suggestions, hiking prompts and fun verses for jump roping. For larger projects we be tie-dying, wet felting and creating a summer long alphabet project to use in future classes.
This class will allow the children to continue work with proprioception, vestibular senses, and fine and gross motor skills. All skills that should be utilized weekly until school begins again in the fall. We will also have a one a week social Zoom where we will play fun games, guess riddles and share our projects.This class also supports the parents and caregivers of the children enrolled. We will have a separate Zoom meeting weekly and be sharing in community building activities and have discussions and readings how to bring more Holistic Waldorf Parenting into your home. We will also be participating in summer time festival life and will share some handwork projects adults can work on too over the summer months.
I hope you will join me in Sun Garden as we bring love and light to your child as well as a solid rhythm over the summer months. I look forward to bringing fun and engaging activities to your child as well as helping you along your journey of Holistic Waldorf parenting as you bridge between kinder or into the Grade years and set up for a successful start to the fall semester.
