As we find the intimate relationship of child development to the unique Waldorf curriculum, we will explore the subtle, but far-ranging changes that occur in the eight-year-old of today, and consider that changes previously associated with the nine-year-old have begun to appear in children as early as age seven in the 21st century. We will investigate questions of forming and shaping lessons in an artistic, imaginative manner, examine fully the threefold story content of second grade, and practice circle work and other forms of movement integrated with stories, drawing, painting and main lesson bookwork. In our judicious use of music, speech, movement, and visual arts activities, we will see that the arts are key to the pedagogical practice that emerges for children who are still at the beginning of their educational journey!
