The next step is learning to write numbers, and this is where mathematics worksheets become almost a necessity. Unless you have great handwriting, lots of spare time and a fair amount of patience, writing worksheets will help you teach this valuable skill to your child. Dot-to-dot, tracing, following the lines and other writing exercises will help your child learn how to write numbers. A good set of worksheets will include practice sheets with various methods to help your child learn to write numbers. Patterns and sequencing and basic addition and subtraction should follow on from counting and number recognition. By the time your child is starting kindergarten or school, they should be able to count to 20 with ease, write numbers, do simple addition sums, and have some understanding of patterns and sequences. Even if they are attending preschool, extra practice at home will help them improve their math.
Privacy nook. My second daughter loved this place. Silk drapes are hung to enclose a space about four feet square, perfect for just sitting quietly when that is what you need. No more than two children are allowed in the privacy nook at a time. My daughter loved to come here and sit and sing to herself -- and whoever joined her in the nook. Craft time. Children do crafts, not worksheets. They learn the specialty of Waldorf painting: the wet-on-wet method, which encourages experimentation with mixes of color. They also learn sewing, felting, and gnome-making. Free play. Allowing the children to play freely lets them develop themselves as they will. Importantly, while the children play, the adults do not do paperwork; they do tangible work which the children can safely participate in or mimic: washing dishes, ironing, polishing apples, oiling wood, baking bread. The point is to create an environment where the children can feel safe, but not central. It is not healthy for the children to feel like the adults have nothing better to do than dote on them.
The use of digital learning games to teach kindergarten math is by no means a stand-in for traditional education. However, when kids are presented with a fun, interactive learning environment in their own homes, they can build skills and get a deeper understanding of the concepts that will lead to better classroom performance and a more positive school experience. This week our children are returning to school. They are ecstatic, and we are pretty excited too. This is the beginning of our fourth year as Waldorf parents, and our enthusiasm has not waned over time. On the contrary, every year we are more certain that Waldorf is the perfect place to send our children.
