The fifth grade year shines in the firmament of the Waldorf Curriculum as the year in which the children begin to speak the morning verse that begins “I look into the world….” It is the year that contains both the grime and the glory of the Ancient Greeks. Our starting point will be child development, as we find the youngsters at a major turning point, possibly enjoying the last vestiges of golden childhood while experiencing deeply rooted changes. We will look at every aspect of the fifth grade year: ancient cultures, USA geography, nature studies (plants and unusual animals), decimals, freehand geometry plus circle activities, songs, and poetry that enhance this glorious year.
Well-known for his imaginative and musical, all-encompassing circle work, Dennis Demanett brings both expertise and enthusiasm from his many years of class teaching at Waldorf schools in England, Hawaii, the East Coast and Los Angeles.
