Grade 3

For the first time grammar and spelling are formally introduced. The Old Testament stories which are presented mirror the children's own journey from Paradise to earth. The children also learn about house building and farming which have the same theme of stepping firmly onto the earth.

They learn linear and weight measurement with money and time, stimulated by their study of ancient times. In painting there is an exploration of the relationship among the colors. Form drawing focuses on symmetry and on forms which metamorphose.

Singing, recorder playing and games are a part of the day as well. In Eurythmy there is an emphasis on arm and foot gestures coordinating with musical rhythms, modulations in volume. From the beginning, meaningful sentences and poems are the context.
