The Curriculum of the Steiner School - Middle School

Notes and Lesson Plans

Middle School Math Worksheets
updated March 5, 2024

Recorded here is my own personal collection of articles, resources, favorite links, teaching ideas, and lesson plans. It encompasses many years, from the very beginning of my experience studying and learning about Waldorf to the present time. People from all around the world visit my site and recommend it to others. Welcome!

This site records my journey. I hope my honesty is encouraging and helps break down some barriers that may prevent people from trying Waldorf methods. Because this is an ongoing site documenting my curriculum planning and ideas, some materials are more Waldorf-y than others. Please feel free to take what you like and leave the rest.

Without exception, I would recommend Jamie York's excellent book for Middle School Math.

Making Math Meaningful : A Middle School Math Curriculum for Teachers and Parents

Jamie recommends math homework every night, two math main lesson blocks during the course of the school year, and an afternoon math class several times a week for further reinforcement and practice. There are lots of great math books, and I've compiled a list of my recommendations, but this page of the website focuses on worksheets which would be suitable for math practice.

My favorite flashcards:

NOTE: I like these FREE Homework Scorecards which ask students to self-assess their work. (Mon - Thu)
