i’ve been researching waldorf education and find it to be such a peaceful and calming way of teaching children about their world, allowing them to approach life with mindfulness. it encourages a growth mentality, continued love of learning, and rhythm over rigid routine. i especially love the way nature is incorporated, giving them an appreciation for all of the delightful creation that surrounds us. waldorf

one way i’ve been incorporating waldorf ideas is through regular (weekly if possible) visits to local libraries. the library we visited this week had a lovely courtyard with a beautiful garden. we also visited the park, collected leaves, painted them and made leaf prints. waldorf

this year we decided to do homeschooling with my 3 year old and have been letting fall inspire our reading. i love the changing seasons so much, but fall may be my favorite (if i had to pick). i love sweater weather, vibrant colors of the changing leaves, hayrides, and the list goes on!

here’s a list of the books we’re reading for our fall inspired theme:

“Fall” by Moira Butterfield

“Red Panda’s Candy Apples” by Ruth Paul

“How do Apples Grow” by Betsy Maestro

“Leaves” by John Farndon

“Fall” by Ron Hirschi (my fav)

i enjoy having a weekly theme as a way to expand our knowledge and share things we’ve learned as a family. overall, i’m happy we’re building a foundation for a love of learning.

what are some of your favorite fall crafts?! hope you have a lovely rest of your week!

best regards,

laura
