Check Out What Other People Are Saying About This Guidebook

I am loving your planning guidebook! It has given me the freedom to simplify; to make lessons easy and doable. I keep coming back to the idea of making lessons so simply that I can do them through anything. This never occurred to me; I had been aiming for “perfect” lessons and disappointed myself and children when I could not make that mark. 

Thank you for such a wonderful book!

Sabrina, homeschooling mother

 I can’t thank you enough for your planning guide.  I have a variety of guides along with a 1st grade syllabus, but yours is the most helpful of all I’ve read from a practical standpoint. 

As I begin to plan for next year, I will certainly benefit from the wisdom and experience you’ve put into this guide in many, many ways.  It is truly a bright light for my Waldorf-inspired homeschooling path.

    WHAT I LIKE BEST (from a happy customer):

    • The First Waldorf School - I haven't seen that discussion in any other guide I've read, and I'm very eager to read more!
    • Inspirational Quotes - Several now grace my refrigerator.
    • Simple Forms - if you could see the complicated forms I made up for myself last summer while planning our first homeschool year...I made it so much more complicated than it needed to be! LOL. I especially love the form that includes the daily and weekly rhythms and meal ideas.  
    • The Environment Section - a small paragraph with a huge impact on how I'm organizing our space. Your suggestion about clearing the clutter and 2 baskets per child. Brilliant! 
    • Tips for Planning - some gold nuggets in this list! My great challenge is fitting in all the housekeeping along with the schooling, so I appreciate your practical suggestions that speak to this.
    • Resource List - The limited number of titles keeps the overwhelm at bay, and is, again, very helpful.
    • Finally, the reminder you give that "all education is self-education and this is only the beginning" eased some built-up anxiety. I needed the reminder that this is a learning journey for EVERYONE!!
