anyone else waldorf homeschooling with multiple ages?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

i am homeschooling 3 of our 6 children (one is in college, one is in high school [his choice] and one is only 20 months)

so the kids that are "school age" are 11, 8 and 5. i feel a bit overwhelmed trying to figure out how to get them all what they need and integrate some wonderful waldorf main lessons and rhythm. the 5 year old is desperate to do "school work" like his brothers. he wants to read, do math etc. i am just wondering how others work thru a rhythm keeping the younger set doing one thing while working with the older kids (who are also in different "grades". )

 

thank you

The author of The Parenting Passageway blog is homeschooling multiple children.  Visit her--I know she has posts about this very topic.

That is a great blog!

 

Waldorf Essentials talks about this, too. 

 

My girls are almost 5 and almost 7 so we do a mixed age thing with them.  I make sure to take care of the youngest first since she has the least patience.  And, then she just plays the morning away while i do more sit down stuff with the oldest.  it works.  there is a lot of stuff they do together.  they hear some of the same stories and then want to make beeswax stuff all together.  they all like the play/puppet shows.
