The Waldorf Approach to the Vimala Alphabet

Soul Development through Handwriting cultivates the noble qualities to which Waldorf education has long been devoted through the use of specific forms for shaping letters. The Vimala Alphabet was meticulously designed to support independent thinking, engaged willpower, balance, tolerance, honor, and intuition, as well as strengthening the developing soul forces of children.

This book considers personal characteristics, which can be transformed through certain letters. Soul Development through Handwriting includes:

  • A summary the Waldorf method of teaching writing to young children
  • Ideas for introducing the Vimala Alphabet into different grades
  • Details on using the Vimala Alphabet as a transformative tool for children

 

Also included are descriptions of the letters and their qualities, practice pages, letter forms to avoid, and practical tools to assist in teaching handwriting. Soul Development through Handwriting is a valuable resource for all Waldorf teachers, home schoolers, and others working with children.
