The Role of Purposeful Work in a Waldorf Kindergarten
by KAREN SMITH
Karen Smith's article is available at the Online Waldorf Library
. The OWL is a great resource for parents and teachers and has an extensive selection of articles, books, and journals about Waldorf Education.
As Waldorf early childhood educators, one of our primary goals is to teach by example. Through our work, the children learn important lessons to prepare them for the academics they will begin in Grade One. This teaching method is quite different from the trend in mainstream education today, where out-of-context abstract concepts provide the basis for all learning, and opportunities for shared work activity with adults are not available.
