Becca's 6th grade year
2016-2017

Becca came to Waldorf this year with a background of progressive school (5th and 4th grades), traditional public school (2nd grade), and Montessori school (PK, PK, K, K, and 3rd grades).

She skipped 1st grade because the public school wanted to put her back with her peers.
I, on the other hand, was happy with the second year of Kindergarten and wanted her to be 7 when she started first grade.

When we decided to homeschool for her first year of middle school, I picked

    Language blocks: grade 3 Old Testament Stories (three blocks)

    Mathematics blocks: String, Straight-Edge & Shadow; grade 3 Baking (Time, Temperature, Weight, Volume); Business Math (Fractions, Decimals, Percents, Graphing)

    Cultural blocks: grade 5 Ancient Mythologies (India, Persia, Babylon, Egypt); Middle Ages; grade 4 Local History & Geography

    Science blocks: Physics, Geology, Botany
