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 “lesson” 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 🙂.


PLEASE NOTE: We will ship small and sone medium lesson book orders in soft packs or envelopes. There will be a 3-book minimum for larger and extra large lesson books that do not fit inside envelopes.

The cost of the box outweighs the markup of the book and we often go into the negative when shipping a single or double set of lesson books in a box. An order of three books is the minimum required amount to cover the cost of the shipping box.
