grade 1, block II: letter introduction (wk 1)

we will be using another container story for the introduction of the letters, this one is from donna simmon's grade 1 syllabus.

a dear friend let me borrow her copy when we had only just begun our waldorf homeschooling journey, 3 years ago. i learned so much since then, and create my own curriculum now pulling from various sources...but this story i love. but as it is copy written material, i cannot reprint it here (sorry! :)
