Workshops at the IDEA Curriculum Fair in Fairbanks

Enchanted Forest Toys will be presenting 2 workshops at the upcoming IDEA Homeschool Curriuculum Fair on Monday, April 27th and Tuesday, April 28th at the Westmark Hotel in Fairbanks.

On Monday from 1:30-2:30, we will be offering:

"Introduction to Waldorf Crafts"

Learn how a variety of arts and crafts materials are used within a Waldorf homeschooling context. This workshop will provide a hands-on introduction to beeswax crayons, modeling beeswax, needle felting, and translucent window stars.

Then, on Tuesday from 11:30-12:30:

"Creating a Main Lesson Book"

Main lesson books are traditionally used with the Waldorf style of education, but can be adapted to any unit study. Rather than utilizing textbooks or worksheets, students draw from a rich variety of sources to create their own unique, memorable, and meaningful keepsake books for each topic studied. Main lesson books are an ideal format when working with students of multiple ages as each child can adapt the day's work to their individual level. This workshop will offer a demonstration of how to create a main lesson book with a particular emphasis on Waldorf resources. There will be completed main lesson books on display along with a slide show of a variety of main lesson book pages.
