Kindergarten Curriculum Haul | Waldorf

I think the first thing that striking about the Waldorf kindergarten curriculum from Live-Education is the absence of any ‘academic’ work. There are no workbooks, textbooks or even read aloud books. Instead the curriculum is filled with stories to tell, songs to sing, music to listen to, crafts to do, and toys to play with. The natural rhythm of the day is enhanced with imaginative stories and pretend play with child-sized brooms, ironing boards, wooden trucks and simple dolls. Meals are events celebrated with an opening verse. They are varied with flavored, wholesome and thoroughly enjoyed. The toys are simple and all natural.

All supplies are from A Child’s Dream.
The complete list of products are as follows:

Paint brushes are from Waldorf Supplies and the Broom set by Melissa and Doug is from Rainbow Resource

  1. Hi Hana, how r u doing? your kindergarten curriculum looks amazing. i want to see how u teach your daughter using all those wonderful things you have. I’m very new to the Waldorf teaching.
    thanks

    1. Salam Zeyenab! I will be having videos and blog posts about all the projects we do for kindergarten. It’s not so much teaching, though, as there are no academics in kindergarten, it’s more of daily activities that change with the seasons. I have created a video playlist for Waldorf KG and in that, you can see the things we are doing that would be appropriate for the KG level.

  2. Hi I want to ask from where u can buy the curriculum and it come like a set or they gave u a lost of what u need to buy I open the site but I can’t get it

    1. Wa’Alaykum Asalam, if you are very much into the Waldorf philosophy, then buying the kindergarten curriculum from now will give you enough time to familiarize yourself with it and implement what you can. I find the KG curriculum hard to use as is because there’s so much in it that isn’t conducive for Muslims families. If you still want it so you can modify it to your needs, then go ahead and get started on it. You would still be waiting until 6-7 years old to start grade 1 though. So your KG experience will last 2-3 years.

  4. Hi Hana,
    I have a son who is going on 11, has autism and dyslexia. He is behind in the public school setting. He has been promoted to 4th grade without doing any multiplication or division. He can barely add or subtract. He has never had a social studies, science, art, or music classes. I am currently going to start homeschooling this year. I am interested in using the Waldorf program as well as The Good and The Beautiful, Masterbooks, Sonlight, and Gather Round. Do you think that it would be easier for him to start from scratch so we can get caught up? Or should I just start him out on the grade level of the Public school system?

    1. Oh Brandy, what a good question. With children who don’t have Autism or dyslexia, I would say they can catch up pretty quickly. As I am not familiar with the learning capabilities of children with Autism, I feel unable to advise you. I do feel that starting him at grade level may be frustrating for both of you. I also know how enjoyable KG and young elementary projects and activities are for children of all ages and I think he may enjoy those.
