This past week, we reviewed various forms we covered throughout the year while I read and told several nature stories.
We didn't do too much MLB drawings of the stories since we were busy putting our forms in our books, but we did do one for a story by Carl Ewald called, "The Dragon-Fly and the Water-Lily". It yielded a lesson about simplicity of life, coupled with the reality that we all end up in the same predicament in the end, no matter what our journey is to get there.
I also read to them a few stories by Clara Dillingham Pierson, Thornton Burgess, and one I made up myself. I tried to pick stories that could be tied into the forms we were reviewing. Donna Simmons has a wonderful "Form Drawing for Beginners" book which has a lovely example of how to do this, pertaining to a king looking for his love and the journey he takes to find her. Here is an informative review on this waldorf book.
Those are just some of the running forms we reviewed this past week from Donna's book. Next week, we'll continue this review block. My sister is also coming into town with her family - yeah! So I should have some fun family photos to share, as well :D
