Greek and Waldorf


This year we’re using Song School Greek from Classical Academic Press. I’ve used their products in the past and enjoy the multi-faceted approach to learning.

This year I decided to switch from Latin to Greek and to scale back a bit from the quite challenging for this age ‘Latin for Kids’ and go to the ‘Song School’ format, which is easier but still provides a base and a good amount of learning. The interesting thing for me is that I am now unable to do any subject without using a Main Lesson Book.

We are starting off slowly by learning the Greek alphabet. The pace is set more by my calcified synapses than by Minerva’s (new net name, thanks.) She catches on really quickly. Me? Not so much. By the first of the year we will know the Greek alphabet and be able to swing through more than one chapter per week. For now, we are singing, chanting, writing and enjoying our introduction to Greek.
