It encompasses many years, from the very beginning of my experience studying and learning about Waldorf to the present time. I hope my honesty is encouraging and helps break down some barriers that may prevent people from trying Waldorf methods.People from all around the world visit my site and recommend it to others. Because this is an ongoing site documenting my curriculum planning and ideas, some materials are more Waldorf-y than others.The Circle C Market in Cody, Nebraska, has a unique reason for its success: the market is run almost entirely by students.
three demonstration problems from Jamie York we invented three story problems for the MLB; his business was "Madame Bouffant's Skirts, Shirts, and Socks" practice problems: Scaffolding Sales Tax Percent Word Problems imagine some problems for banking (mortgages and savings accounts), inspired by Leah's Pony by Elizabeth Friedrich discussion: the Great Depression discussion (the next day): checking accts vs. credit cards, credit scores, mortgages and down payments we invented three story problems for the MLB: Dewey who goes to the bank and wants an auto loan and has a good credit score, Leo who wants to buy a $500,000 house and puts 10% down and gets a 30 year mortgage with a 2% interest rate, and Peyton who wants a credit card and has a bad credit score and gets a $250.00 line of credit at 18% interest practice problems: Percent of a Number Sampler (I like all the activities except the ratio tables) go to the grocery store and examine unit cost labels, inspired by All in Just One Cookie by Susan Goodman metric chocolate chip cookie recipe which perfectly matches this story "Ratios in Advertising" activity from Hands-On Math: Ready to Use Games and Activities for Grades 4-8, p.74 imagine some problems for unit cost at the grocery store imagine some problems for temperature (travel agency posters), inspired by Something to Tell the Grandcows by Eileen Spinelli current weather forecast for South Pole, Antarctica The highest temperature ever recorded at the Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station was -12.3 C (9.9 F) on Christmas Day, 2011.
The lowest was -82.8 C (-117.0 F) on June 23, 1982.
) practice problems: Loopy Percents (you need 75 Fruit Loops per child/group) my students really balked at the idea that you convert a fraction to a percent by dividing the top number by the bottom number...
it seems so counter-intuitive to divide the big number into the little one...
Superintendent Todd Chessmore of Cody-Kilgore Unified Schools said adults are involved, but the kids run just about everything.
He said without the students there’s a good chance Circle C would go out of business.
Please feel free to take what you like and leave the rest.
I am currently teaching this main lesson block, February 2017.
practice problems (all whole numbers): Temperature Conversions Round Robin Activity I discovered that students haven't always seen examples of travel posters, so some images to share would be helpful: imagine some problems for all kinds of silly shopping, inspired by A Boy Had a Mother Who Bought Him a Hat by Karla Kuskin I have the original version, illustrated by her, but it doesn't seem to be available anymore.
Here are all the things she buys him: a hat, a mouse, new shoes, new rubber boots, skis, a mask, a cello, an elephant, and another hat.
