That was our first waldorfy addition to the home too! We started it when our son was about 10 months old and its been a part of our home ever since.
I agee with mommabeehilly about peeking in on people's blogs to get ideas. Also, if you are just starting out your...

Yikes! That's not a very encouraging way to start the year.
Two thoughts came into mind when I read your post.
1) Some teachers are not good at writing/preparing kids for tests, and that is unfair to the students.
2) My freshman year of HS I had a similar start to biology. Our first test/lab report was a disaster for the whole class. The teacher had very high standards for her students and until her class science was not really very challenging so most of us...
