Remember always that you not only have the right to be an individual, you have an obligation to be one.
For the first time, third graders begin to experience their individuality, and the curriculum is shaped to support them during their time of discovery of their separate self. Main Lessons on farming and building, grammar, parts of speech and cursive writing, as well as weights and measures fulfill their desire to know and understand the physical world and their place in it. As with all grades in the Waldorf curriculum, the Subjects scaffold the Main Lesson for an all-encompassing approach to learning.
