interested in a waldorf book club of sorts?

post #1 of 121
Thread Starter 
right now we are reading you are your child's first teacher....come join us in the discussion!

: "we need to accept who we are and build up the support we need...no matter what you do, you will find you need and deserve support." :
-rahima baldwin, you are your child's first teacher


so i had this thought in the middle of the night. here we all are, reading the same books based on steiner's philosophies and trying to do the best for our children. i know i have a stack of books i'd like to read and it might be more fun to do it together and then discuss. so i thought i'd see if anyone else is interested.....

so here is a list of books that i am reading/want to read.... :

heaven on earth
you are your child's first teacher
waldorf education
seven times the sun
beyond the rainbow bridge

many of you have probably read these before, but it'd be great to have some re-readers too with different input. i am sure there are other books that i don't have on my list that would be great too.

anyone interested???

I'm in! I'm in process of You Are Your Child's First Teacher. But there are a few others I want to read on your list too! (If you don't mind a "take it with a grain of salt" interpretation! I promise I play nice---I'm sooo not religious and my very religious in-laws like me fine and think I'm a good influence!)

Me too!! Me too!! Heaven on Earth is the best! I reference it often. I keep waiting for another book that can top it but it just can't be beat!!

I would probably be in too! I have You Are Your Childs First Teacher and I have not even opened it, maybe this would be the motivation I need!

gosh, all of those are on my to read list. I just wish we had a little extra cash right now so we could get them I've already checked our library system. I'll double check the University's, although I know they don't have STS.

I will read the discussion thread with great interest and if I can manage to get a copy of what you're reading at the time would love to join in!!

ooh, where to start....

: i am so excited.
i find it so comforting to know that other's want to discuss what they are reading too . makes me feel a bit less lonely in this big wide world.

so since a few folks mentioned you are your child's first teacher, how does that sound as a place to start? then maybe heaven on earth next.

had you rather it be a bit structured or just dive on in and start discussing? i am fine with either...and want what will work best for us all.

i look forward to hearing back from you gals. then we can really get to the fun part !

I think a little structure would help - at least for me. Plus then there's time to inter-library loan books if you don't want to buy that one.

Me too - I've read You Are Your Child's First Teacher and Seven Times the Sun and Understanding Waldorf Education by Jack Petrash.

I'm excited? How will we structure this?
post #18 of 121
I have First Teacher also, and haven't yet had "time" to delve into it.

nak

I'd love to do this!
post #20 of 121
I got You Are Your Child's First Teacher recently and hope to start it soon (along with a heap of John Holt books and Above All Be Kind)

Would be fun to discuss... so what's the next step?
