1) Our Teaching Packs are designed to appeal to the heart, head and hands. Original material is the Mollet Learning Academy (MLA) Teaching Packs. These were written initially for New Zealand teachers and based, in part, on Waldorf – under heading Waldorf Education Resources (WER).

There are 4 SubUnits for the Multiplication Tables, 3 SubUnits for Fractions. All SubUnits are sent as pdfs (no postage or processing fee). Cost is USA $19.95 per SubUnit; NZ $24.95 per SubUnit. Physical copies (postage/processing fees apply) can be provided at additional cost.

1. The MLA approach to education believes in developing the creative and imaginative side of the student in harmony with the intellectual and cognitive. To achieve this, MLA Teaching Packs make stories and drama an integral part of the lessons and involve students through storytelling, art, simulations, drama, craft, discussion and creation of a personal record.

There are MLA Teaching Packs for teaching a) Ancient Civilizations/World History, b) History of California and c) Mathematics (Fractions and Multiplication Tables)
