Description:     

Foundations of creative literacy in Classes 1 and 2

This book is both theoretical and practical, providing a complete pathway to teaching children how to write and read in Classes 1 and 2 (UK years 2 and 3). The authors provide teachers with appealing, easy-to-use plans and practical activities for immediate use. It also sets out fundamental principles of Waldorf pedagogy, showing how this dovetails with the best of both mainstream primary approaches and specialist dyslexia-friendly methods. Teachers can also use the book and these principles to find the confidence to create and tailor their own activities and resources.

Writing to Reading the Steiner Waldorf Way showcases holistic, creative aspects of the Steiner Waldorf literacy approach. Teaching writing before reading is prioritized to engage children’s creativity in learning. Developing the child’s own voice through writing and storytelling leads into reading and is highly effective for motivation and success.

  • “Useful not only for teachers seeking to guide children into the world of literacy, but it also provides a long-overdue and unique resource detailing the holistic Steiner-Waldorf approach, which has hitherto been unjustly neglected.” —Sebastian Suggate, PhD
