Children in Waldorf play outside for at least a short time every single day, regardless of weather (well, except for thunderstorms and blizzards). Children this age are still closely tied to the natural world, and they need that outside time like they need sleep and food. There are no names written on the cubicles; each chubby has a hand-drawn personal symbol (a fawn, a squirrel, a maple tree...). This same symbol is used to mark the child has seat. No writing is used, because Waldorf kindergartens do not teach reading.
By the age of three, your child is ready to move onto mathematics worksheets. This does not mean that you should stop playing counting and number games with your child; it just adds another tool to your toolbox. Worksheets help to bring some structure into a child has education using a systematic teaching method, particularly important with math, which follows a natural progression. Learning about numbers includes recognizing written numbers as well as the quantity those numbers represent. Mathematics worksheets should provide a variety of fun activities that teach your child both numbers and quantity. Look for a variety of different ways to present the same concepts. This aids understanding and prevents boredom. Color-by-Numbers pictures are a fun way to learn about numbers and colors too.
This sounds like an awful lot, does not it! A good set of preschool worksheets should cover all of this, and more. In the preschool years, repetition is the key to learning, but you should look for worksheets that teach the same skills in a variety of ways. This not only prevents boredom setting in, but also reinforces the concepts by encouraging understanding as well. The importance of reading to your child cannot be emphasised enough, and you should encourage them to read as much as possible too.
