First Grade Basics
I’m so glad to be releasing my first grade basics package! It’s got all of the documents that I put together at the beginning of the school year to set myself up for the year. If you’re a homeschooler or teacher looking at teaching first grade in the future, this is a great resource.
Maybe you’re a teacher training student trying to wrap your mind around taking a class and teaching first grade in the future — this package can get you in the right frame of mind.
In this package you’ll find . . .
- My 1st grade block rotation, along with the thoughts that went into creating it
- My 1st grade morning rhythm
- The songs and verses that I use in my morning rhythm
- Our 1st grade weekly schedule
- A 1st grade skills checklist (get this one for free by putting your email address in the form on this page.)
- My sample 1st grade back to school letter
- A great conflict resolution tool to help first graders work things out.
All of these resources will get you set up to teach first grade for only $12. I hope to be releasing individual block plans in the future, but for now this basics package will go a long way towards getting you started.
Click any of the Amazon links on this site and a small portion of your purchase will end up in my pocket. This is a nice and easy way to support by spending the money you were going to spend anyway. Remember to think of supporting A Waldorf Journey before making your big back-to-school supply purchase.
I love the idea behind Patreon. Imagine paying for something you can easily get for free, without anyone even knowing. But it feels good to make the donation and it is much appreciated.
