Starting first grade is a big milestone- for you and you're child. You want to bring the MAGIC, yet you need all the tools to make your teaching successful, joyful and FUN.

and compiled it into the most complete, easy-to-follow-& implement curriculum that takes all of the guesswork and confusion away.

Nadia & Milo Adventures
Your child will learn their letters, math processes, all about nature and animal habitats through my original support story and beautiful fairy/nature tales. Nadia's holistic world is filled with herbs, nature elements and magical creatures that guide her and her friend, Milo as they learn grade one material.
A Guide for Beginners
This curriculum was written with newbies in mind. I created an extensive support section giving "behind-the-scenes" information so you know exactly how it all works. This is not just ideas or an outline- I give everything I could think of to make your job as your child's educator- easy & fun!
A Word From Donna
“More than anything I want moms to enjoy teaching. I created a step-by-step guide to save time & frustration. I want the Waldorf Magic to be accessible to anyone who wants to bring this holistic education to their child.
That's why I created my version of grade one. It's simple to use, has all the instructions you need and includes everything in one place."
“Super easy to use and packed full of information. I have what I need to make this work and because it's all done- my summer is free. Super time saving!" -Lisa A, mom of rising first grader & toddler
