Collection: Main Lesson Books, Exercise Books, Subject Books for Waldorf Classrooms, Homeschool

What is a Main Lesson Book and how is it different from the other books, such as composition books, practice books and exercise books?

Think of a Main Lesson Book as a child’s self-made textbook. A Main Lesson Book (MLB) documents the progressional thinking and understanding from a concept being taught in a deeply creative way.

Why creative? Because when attaching emotion, which is part of creativity, to understanding, the learning is not only embedded deeper into the brain, but it is a way of teaching this understanding to others. And teaching to others is one of the best ways to deepen one’s own understanding even more.

Anyone looking through a child’s MLB should be able to follow along. A MLB is NOT for practice problems, or exercises. It is NOT for rough drafts and tons of written feedback. That is what all the other books and booklets are for 🙂.
