Shining RIvers Waldorf School

A Developing Waldorf School

Grade 3

In this period the child empathizes with stories of the Torah and its stories of self-identity, knowledge of good and evil, and man’s first struggles to live in social groups on the earth. At this age, children are very interested in the origin of things.  They want to discover new ways of doing things in the world and imagine themselves in very primitive conditions. The practical life is taken up in studies of house building, farming, gardening, cooking and finding out about the jobs people do.  These trades provide a nice setting for the introduction of measurements in arithmetic.

Students begin Circus Arts and Violin instruction in Grade Three.
