Extra Lesson for the Whole Class with Lynn Aaberg
November 14, 2020 8:30a-3:30p
The Extra Lesson was created by Waldorf teacher Audrey McAllen, who developed exercises and movement activities based on Rudolf Steiner’s pedagogical indications, which specifically address challenges that children experience in their will senses and movement body. These exercises were originally intended for work with individual students, but more and more, class teachers are finding that these extra lesson exercises benefit all children, and are finding ways to integrate them into their daily work.
In this workshop, we will explore these exercises in both an intellectual capacity and through practice. We will work with body geography, spatial orientation, integration of vertical and horizontal midlines, hand-eye coordination, and development of will senses.
