First Grade Readiness : Resources, Insights and Tools for Waldorf Educators
The move from kindergarten to school is a significant one. This book, a companion to 'You're Not the Boss of Me: Understanding the Six/Seven-Year-Old Transformation', is a collection of essential research and resources to help educators prepare children for starting school.
Experienced teachers, doctors and therapists give guidance in the nature and needs of the child between six and seven, how to observe children for signs of readiness, and creating and carrying a healthy transition from kindergarten to grade school.
It includes four different sample observation forms, to help schools to develop their own readiness observation procedures.
