Writing to Reading the Steiner Waldorf WayFoundations of Creative Literacy in Classes 1 and 2£24.99
This theory and practice-based book outlines the foundations for creative literacy and teaching children how to write and read in Classes 1 and 2, or UK Years 2 and 3. It explores how Steiner/Waldorf pedagogy dovetails with mainstream primary approaches and specialist dyslexia-friendly methods. There is no ‘one size fits all’ best way. However, Rudolf Steiner/Waldorf education offers a holistic, active and creative approach based on the foundation of children’s spoken language development. The child discovers their own voice through movement, form drawing and storytelling. The magic of the alphabet is invoked in sound, story and image. Children tell stories and then write them down, which leads organically into reading.
