Practical inspiration for kindergarten at home.
by Donna Simmons
$24.00 – $39.00 | Understanding our pricing
This book was written to enable parents to create child-inclusive and nurturing family rhythms as the basis of their child’s kindergarten experience at home. The book is full of practical advice, ranging from questions of how to work with several children at once to choosing appropriate stories. Sample schedules, songs, stories, craft ideas, a discussion of discipline and much more is included. There is extensive guidance on how to choose and find suitable stories for your child and help in deciding what stories are best for which age.
If you need specific verses, finger games and songs, please refer to Joyful Movement which is filled with such resources. Also the CD which comes with that publication shows how to do and sing many of these rhymes and games.
Even if your children are past kindergarten age, you still may very well find this book a useful guide to creating a nurturing homelife with children.
The three publications, Kindergarten with Your 3–6 Year Old, Joyful Movement and The Journey Begins at Home comprise a complete program for early years through kindergarten, arising from the Waldorf/Christopherus method of homeschooling.
