August Enrichment Guide
& Daily Guide

The Afterschool Enrichment books are different from our regular 3 day and 5 day lesson plan guides... the Enrichment books follow the
rhythm of a weekly theme with the flexibility that teachers, homeschoolers and afterschooling parents need to enrich their children's
Waldorf learning experience at home or school.  Our new Monthly Enrichment Guides are filled to the rim with crafts, recipes, activities,
stories and inner-work suggestions and they follow a weekly theme to keep your home or school following a seasonal rhythm.  They are not
structured like classroom lesson plans, as our Childcare Lesson Plan Guides are and keep older children in mind along with the caregiver.  
They are created so you can use the ideas as time allows without having each day specifically planned out for you.

These Enrichment Guides were created to help parents, teachers and caregivers of all types create a healthy, rhythmic and peaceful home for
their children.  These guides may be used with children attending traditional schools, Waldorf schools, private schools, childcare centers or
with homeschooled children as an enrichment tool to extend their Little Acorn ‘Learning’.
