Color is a vital part of creative expression, and while it is important that your child learn that the sky is blue and grass is green, it is also important that they be allowed to experiment with color. Mixing paints and having free rein to color a picture any way they want to, allows children to express themselves creatively, so do not always insist that they use color accurately. Start teaching your child about color as early as possible. By the age of four years, your child should recognize and be able to name around ten different colors. Reinforce what they learn by playing games using color. Preschool printable worksheets will give your child the opportunity to put their learning into practice in a variety of ways.
No plastic. Children this age are still integrating their senses (as you know if you know a child with sensory integration difficulties, as we did), and it is very helpful for them to be able to match up texture, weight, color and pattern consistently. Natural materials such as wood always look and feel the same; the child gets a consistent message. Plastics have dazzling colors and any number of strange textures and weights. Furthermore, natural materials are simply more comfortable for a young child. Dress-up area. Over here is a rack of costumes hanging, and a bin stuffed with crowns, boas, sashes, and capes. All costumes are made of cotton, wool, silk, and other natural fibers. Nature table. Children are forever finding treasures in nature: pine cones, rocks, feathers, flowers, shells of cicadas, autumn leaves. On this table they are arranged lovingly -- a sort of altar to nature.
The effect of a Waldorf education is to grow a child, with careful tending, into a strong, deeply rooted, freethinking adult, at home in matters spiritual and mundane -- and able to see the spiritual in the mundane. The Waldorf curriculum recognizes the child is a creature of nature and of spirit, and both of these aspects are cultivated and interconnected as the child grows.Enough lecturing! What do you actually see in a Waldorf kindergarten?Tidy hubbies. Near the entrance to the room is a line of wooden hubbies holding rain-boots and rain gear (or snow boots and snow gear, depending on the time of year), slippers, shoes, and a change of clothes.
