Our Daily Rhythm


Part of a Waldorf classroom is having a daily rhythm...not just our usual daily schedule but a single activity that the children know will happen on a very specific day. When this happens the children learn to keep time, the days of the week do not just all blend together they really understand the sequence of them. The children may come to call a day by this activity such as "Baking Day" instead of saying Tuesday!


Here is our daily rhythm:

  • Monday: Yoga Day (stretch, imagine, relax, set goals and intentions for the day or week)

  • Tuesday: Baking Day (mix, measure, and taste to create baked goods for the week)

  • Wednesday: Nature Walk Day (observe, explore, collect, use our senses to enjoy the surrounding natural spaces)

  • Thursday: Cooking Day (chop, peel, and stir to make our morning snack)

  • Friday: Tidy Up Day (sweep, wipe, fold, organize, to take ownership of the classroom environment and learn life skills) & Show and Tell (asking and answering questions, speaking to the group)
