My nine year old grandson is in the 3rd grade and cannot read at all. Most of his other classmates are already reading. He's very smart and wants to read. I don't have any experience with Waldorf education and am worried that this will have a permanent effect on his life. My grandson has been read to practically from birth and loves stories and each day is filled with reading. Sometimes he will try read a word or two but most times it's guessing a word from its context.
I know reading is not like learning to walk. It doesn't happen by osmosis and requires lots of practice, reading out loud, instruction in grammar, spelling etc. When does this happen in a Waldorf School?
Can anyone share their experiences with learning to read at a Waldorf school. Thanks so much...
A worried Grandmother
