Main Lesson Enrichment
Main Lesson enrichment follows core blocks of curriculum appropriate for Waldorf inspired pedagogy, led by Waldorf Certified and experienced teachers. Blocks provide a structure of learning cycles introducing and developing the topics homeschoolers will cover in greater detail at Threefold Village, then revisit throughout the week at home. These subject blocks incorporate the children creating their own main lesson books, age appropriate morning circle, light musical participation and group oriented collaboration and cooperation with fellow students.
As with the nature of Waldorf pedagogy; the use of integrated skills for learning, music, eurythmy and art will all make an appearance, at the teacher’s discretion. Main Lesson occurs on each day of the 2 Day Program, and can be acquired as a stand alone enrichment. Age appropriate sessions will be available to each age group, and lead by a highly qualified and experienced Waldorf Certified Teacher.
Threefold Village is committed to supporting homeschool families. Not only do we provide quality enrichment services to students in the community – we also enrich the parent experience through regular and on-going support. Main Lesson teachers will be sharing updates with the parents to include what the children are working on, what’s coming next, along with tips, suggestions and ideas of what additional work or activities the parents can enjoy with their students to deepen and strengthen the knowledge the children are acquiring throughout the week.
There is no one day option for Main Lesson. The two day rhythm is important in laying the foundation of understanding with the children. The two days also provides some “stickiness” to the material presented, which improves retention opportunities when the parent follows up the lessons with activities and work as the week progresses.
