Catch-Up Clicks :: Part Two

Everyone's sleeping in this morning, it seems.  It's going to be a rainy day, so I'm hopeful for time to get caught up, all around.  Here are the rest of the links (and I think I heard a baby noise).

*A Day in the Life of a Maya Waldorf Kindergarten :: Lovely photos and descriptions.
*Chillin' with my Gnomies :: Alan Dart gnomes from Knitting Iris, the first blog I really enjoyed.
*The Daily Blessing of the Older Child in the Kindergarten :: Good ideas for the 6-7 year old in a kindergarten setting.
*Flower SoupThe Role of Handwork: Developing Skills and Meeting the Needs of the Older Child in the Kindergarten :: Handwork is suggested by the Enki folks for children who are especially interested in reading and writing, but are not yet ready for first grade.  Willow has really taken off on finger crochet, but we'll both have to learn to finger knit.
*Fairy Castle :: Adorable handmade bendable fairies from Our Ash Grove.  Such talent her oldest daughter has!
*Making Gnome and Fairy Dishes from Seed Pods :: Willow has been very excited about fairy houses lately.  These little dishes are very sweet!
*The Ten Kinds of Play :: All easy and nearly free to do.  I have to admit that I cringe at the use of the term "sensory play" since that seldom means nature play in today's world.
*Tips on Storing Woolens in the Warm Season :: No more moth holes for me!  I hope.
*Freedom from Fundamentalism :: From Mother Arts.
*Practical Activities with the Young Child :: "If the adults are engaged in calm, purposeful activity, the children are likely to imitate it in their play, or even want to participate in the activity. Mending, sewing, washing, sweeping, and repairing toys, are among the activities for the teacher to be involved in while the children explore the room, play, draw, and so on."
*Inadequacy as a Doorway to Learning

And now I'm caught up!  Time to get to work around here.

I was just admiring Our Ash Grove's castle and Shea's handiwork yesterday from your link. So talented.

Will need to come back and look at the handwork and practical work links more closely. N has been really interested in sweeping for me, but I need to figure out a way to make it more effective and less frustrating,

A Blessed Wilderness

It was just like being in heaven, being in there. In those days there was no road. The park was all a blessed wilderness. I have often thought what a wonderful people we would have been if we had wanted to keep it that way.
