Grade School at Mulberry
Our unique approach cultivates a love for beauty that is reflected in our Grades 1-5 and 6-8 curriculum. Inspired most deeply through their feelings, Grade School students respond powerfully to what is beautiful in the world, this feeling for beauty is cultivated by the tools and approaches used in their main lesson work.
The Morning Lesson Book
In Waldorf education, a morning lesson book is a handmade notebook that each student creates to record and illustrate the lessons they receive from their teachers.
After each lesson, students capture the key concepts and ideas they have learned in these books. The pages include drawings, diagrams, and summaries of the lesson. These colorful, individualized books reflect the progress of each student and are a method of inquiry that increases their capacity for creativity and knowledge. Over time, the morning lesson book becomes a record of a student's academic journey, and a personal treasure that they can keep for years to come. They are a unique and vital part of Waldorf education.
