Develop your creativity through the arts to meet the Common Core with enthusiasm!

This two-week institute is designed for teachers in any school setting for grades Pre-K-6. We create ways to integrate the arts and active learning into the public school curriculum, thus bringing learning to life for both teachers and students. Aspects of the Waldorf approach applicable in any classroom are presented, along with an exploration of child development.

* Ignite your creative capacities to awaken your students’ imaginations and wonder in literacy, numeracy, social studies, and science

* Nurture emotional intelligence, kindness, and responsibility in the classroom through character-building activities

* Deepen and enliven the multi-cultural aspect of history, geography, social science, and language arts through recitation, stories, drama, myths, folk tales, and legends of various cultures

* And so much more!

Participants will get extensive hands-on experience in storytelling, poetry recitation, drama, watercolor painting, clay modeling, drawing, movement, and music. Ways to connect children with the wonders of the natural world are explored. We also address important questions about assessment and standards, including enlivening the Common Core Standards.

We will cover:

  • a comprehensive understanding of the Waldorf developmental curriculum
  • hands-on experiences of a range of Waldorf-inspired classroom activities
  • practical ideas and activities that can be used in any classroom setting
