July 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’.
