Waldorf ~ 1st grade ~ Letters ~ alphabet cards

Road To Joy: Waldorf Alphabet  a great resource of letters and stories, plus lovely poem ;

Road To Joy

10 Ways to Support Students with Hyperactivity & Attention Needs - Teaching with Jillian Starr

I know I am not alone when I say that I struggle to sit through staff meetings without doodling on my paper, shifting in my seat, getting up to use the bathroom and occasionally whispering with my teacher friend next to me. Now, these are every other week, and only for an hour. Every time I leave, I think, “How are kids expected to do it all day?!?” Teaching

Neon and Wood Floating Bead Bracelet - Lines Across

I love the contrast of neon silk cord and natural wood beads. Neon alone can be overwhelming and look like something for an 8 year old girl, but when you pair it up with wood beads, you have a stylish and interesting accessory. What you need: 1. Silk Cord (I got a few spools of neon shades for $1 each in the trimmings section of Hobby Lobby) 2. Wooden Beads
