I am excited to announce that Swedish Drill Revisited III is complete and ready for purchase in the Afterthoughts shop. If you’re looking for a fun way to shake up the physical movement slot on your school schedule, I hope you’ll head over and purchase a copy. The cost is $15 (as is the case of Swedish Drill Revisited and Swedish Drill Revisited II).
Marching was introduced in Swedish Drill Revisited II, and in this third volume the practice of marching is taken to an entirely different level. The plans have already been tested by a Charlotte Mason community in Pennsylvania, in which marching was more popular than I could have anticipated. I worked closely with the leadership in that community during the design process, had the opportunity to visit the group in person to observe them in practice, and used feedback from the leaders to refine the plans for broader distribution. I think you’re going to love the result!
In addition to the marching plans, I have included an entirely new routine which contains ten new exercises. Many of these are progressions of previously introduced movements, and several incorporate movements that involve crossing the midline in order to promote optimal neural development.
As always, this is an open-and-go curriculum. Many people choose to use it directly from their devices rather than printing the file on paper. The file contains quick links for easy navigation within the text itself, and there are links that take you directly to video demonstrations of each movement.
Thanks to all of you who have purchased Swedish Drill Revisited to implement in your homeschools and co-ops. It has been humbling to see how widespread the practice of Swedish Drill has once again become, and I feel honored to play a role in its resurgence. Please never hesitate to reach out to me with any questions, comments, or concerns you may have!
ps. Remember that if you want all three Swedish Drill levels, we have a bundle that offers extra savings!
