REVIEW: Kindergarten with your Three to Six Year Old Is An Excellent Resource
An excellent resource not only for those homeschooling three- to six-year-olds, but also for those with younger children, and for Waldorf early childhood educators as well. Donna offers a wealth of practical ideas for working with preschool-aged children in a style that is warm, conversational and humorous, while also displaying a deep understanding of anthroposophy and the foundations of Waldorf education.
This book is different from other resources for Waldorf homeschoolers because Donna actually has experience homeschooling her two sons using Waldorf methods. She knows what it's like to juggle working with one's children while trying to get the laundry done, dishes washed, and meals on the table -- not to mention helping to take care of her family's small farm. She stresses that the Waldorf kindergarten experience should be about learning through the activities of real life. This book offers much inspiration and wisdom, with a map for how to get it all done.
