Wonderful Waldorf morning

Another wonderful Waldorf morning yesterday at the Steiner Playgroup.

We did much the same activities as Tuesday, but Munchkin was much happier now that it was a familiar environment.

The morning circle singing is definately her favourite part of the session. I particularly like the ‘welcome’ song that we sing (with actions – you can use your imagination for those!):

Morning has come

Night is away

Rise with the sun … and Welcome the Day

Good morning dear earth, Good morning dear sun

Good morning dear stones, and flowers Everyone

Good morning dear beasts, and birds in the trees

Good morning to you, and good morning to me.

We also sang ‘open shut them’ and ‘galoop went the little green frog’ and lots of others.

Story time was beautiful as well. The teacher enacted ‘Sweet Porridge’ using beautiful little Waldorf dolls and wooden shapes, and cotton wool for the porridge. The children were captivated, you wouldn’t believe how 10 under 3 year olds could sit still like that.

I can’t wait for next week.

    Sounds like a great playgroup. I aim to type up the risotto recipe over the week end. I will let you know when I post it.
