Shining RIvers Waldorf School

A Developing Waldorf School

Grade 2

This year, children continue to familiarize themselves with the fundamentals of arithmetic and literacy, further developing a repertoire of skills that were initially introduced in Grade One. The curriculum content for this age serves to cultivate a sense of breadth and richness of the language of the feelings and emotions. Teachers continue to use movement, rhythm and rhyme as a key instructional tool.

Legends of the Saints and Fables illustrate the experience of transformation and bring understanding of human traits.  Writing becomes more fluid and words more distinct with the introduction of cursive writing.  In math, children become comfortable working with numbers beyond what they can easily experience.
