April Enrichment Guide
& Daily Guide

The Afterschool Enrichment books are different from our regular 3 day and 5 day lesson plan guides... the Enrichment books
follow the rhythm of a weekly theme with the flexibility that teachers, homeschoolers and afterschooling parents need to enrich
their children's Waldorf learning experience at home or school.  Our new Monthly Enrichment Guides are filled to the rim with
crafts, recipes, activities, stories and inner-work suggestions and they follow a weekly theme to keep your home or school
following a seasonal rhythm.  They are not structured like classroom lesson plans, as our Childcare Lesson Plan Guides are and
keep older children in mind along with the caregiver.  They are created so you can use the ideas as time allows without having
each day specifically planned out for you.

These Enrichment Guides were created to help parents, teachers and caregivers of all types create a healthy, rhythmic and
peaceful home for their children.  These guides may be used with children attending traditional schools, Waldorf schools, private
schools, childcare centers or with homeschooled children as an enrichment tool to extend their Little Acorn ‘Learning’.
