Waldorf Reading

Came across an interesting blog post about how children are taught to read in a Waldorf school.  I have been working in a Waldorf inspired school for the past couple weeks and the children there love stories and reading.  The older children (grade 5 and 6) read quite a bit.  I’m not sure yet how I feel about this method versus the ‘traditional’ public school methods of teaching, but I do think that there are benefits of letting children develop of love of reading rather than a tolerance of it because they have to. Here is a link to the blog post.
