Waldorf Grade 4, the Norse Myths Block 1

Norse Myths Books Waldorf grade 4

We’ve been busy with the Norse Myths block, one of my favourite blocks! Pictured above are a few of the resources that have been used. We use the three-day rhythm, read the story on the first day, discuss and draw on the second day and write a short synopsis on the third day.


We braided play dough when we read about Loki and Sif’s golden hair.

Will make Rune tablets from clay in our next block.

Cook a Nordic feast.

Draw Celtic knots, form drawings. Some ideas here.

Here’s quite a nice Pinterest page for the Norse Myths.


Below are a few examples of what Kye’s been reading and writing. If you click on the photo, it should enlarge:)

April 1st, Germandolls


Welcome to our new sponsor Ulla, who creates the most beautiful handmade dolls and sells them in her Etsy shop, Germandolls.

German Dolls4

In Ulla’s words:

In an age when everything is made of plastic and synthetics, my cloth dolls are handmade with pure wool and cotton, natural materials that warm to body temperature as they are held. Have you ever hugged a plastic baby doll on a cold winter morning?

My soft, warm dolls are unique, huggable, and as individual as the children – young and old – who love them! I fashion my dolls using Waldorf techniques. It is an old tradition of making cloth dolls developed in Germany around 1900.

According to the Waldorf philosophy dolls should be made from what nature has given us: natural fibers such as sheep’s wool, mohair, and cotton. The dolls have a unique inner head construction which gives form but not detail to the face. Often the dolls have very simple features, sometimes no features at all.
