Movement Education

Last weekend at the Jaimen McMillan Workshops, I learned a lot more about WHY our approach to physical education is different. So it’s in this month’s Admin Adlib that I’d like to share some of what Jaimen brought during this incredibly insightful and useful conference on Movement Education

Pentathalon

The annual Waldorf Pentathlon is an honored rite of passage for Waldorf 5th graders. As with all Waldorf curriculum, the pentathlon teaches to the developmental stage, celebrating the student’s “golden year,” the time when they are searching for form and meaning in how things work–the mechanics–and finding it in the formula of learning and applying these pentathlon events. They are taught the exact sequence of movements to, for example, throw a javelin and when the javelin flies as expected, the student sees her formula realized.

It takes a firm hand and lots of oats to fill a gallon jar!

End-of-theYear Letter to Parents -- From Lynda Powell, 2010-11 5th/6th Grade Teacher

As in infancy, when organs and hormones are developing, our students have so much growth occurring every year and often every month it seems, as their toes poke through the sandals they loved so much just a short time ago (or so it seems to those of us who buy the shoes). Arms and legs are so sturdy and coordinated during their 5th grade year and into their 6th grade year. I believe it is a tribute to our curriculum and especially our spacial dynamicsTM program (that is, Ms. Cripps!) that AWS adolescents I observe successfully cope with their changing bodies and turn into human beings with grace, poise and beauty...
