Math Workshop Grades Four and Five

with Chris Bennett

How do we teach Math in such a way that the students discover the basic concepts for themselves out of the work they are doing? In this workshop we will look at ways to lead the 4th and 5th Grade students into discovering and understanding the underlying laws and principles of fractions and decimals, and also look at other aspects of the Waldorf Math curriculum for 4th and 5th grade.

Course Fee: $95

Group Rate (three or more): $75 

Chris Bennett was a Waldorf student in England for Grades 5-8, and, after completing a degree in Aeronautics, went to Emerson College in Forest Row, UK, graduating from there in 1972. He has been a Waldorf teacher ever since, alternating between the Grades and High School (mainly Math), in Austria, the UK, Hawaii, Canada and California, where he graduated his final 8th Grade in June 2017 at the Waldorf School of Orange County. 
He has been working in Waldorf Teacher Education for more than 30 years, in Europe, North America and Asia. Now retired from full-time teaching, he now lives in Vancouver, Canada. He currently gives Math blocks as a guest teacher in the Vancouver Waldorf school, continues to direct the Adult Education program at WSOC, and travels to India regularly to mentor Waldorf schools there.
