This treasury of stories, songs, verses, and games is intended for use in the kindergarten circle time as well as the eurythmy lesson, to bring the joy and healing power of movement to life. Estelle Bryer shares the insights of 43 years as a eurythmist and Waldorf kindergarten teacher: the development of the child, the importance of movement and gesture, and suggestions on discipline, music and structuring a lesson. Whether done with eurythmy gestures or with richly imaginative descriptive gestures, the many sample lessons provide plenty of opportunities in these stories and verses for clapping, stamping; walking on tip-toe, walking on heels; skipping, hopping; and finger-play, as well as contrasts between loud and soft, vigorous and quiet, contraction and expansion, tension and relaxation.Formerly available as Eurythmy for the Young Child, this new edition has been been thoroughly revised and corrected, and the music newly edited by Sally Schweizer.

As we see a shift of old forms that were once the foundations of our daily lives, parents--who must prepare the next generation to meet the changing world--have more questions today than ever before. Although our cultural values and family structures may change, it is the atmosphere in the home that continues to form the foundation of a child's life. In Heaven on Earth, parent and educator Sharifa Oppenheimer reveals how parents can make the home environment warm, lively, loving, and consistent with their highest ideals. Heaven on Earth balances a theoretical understanding of child development with practical ideas, resources, and tips that can transform family life. Readers will learn how to create the regular life rhythms needed to establish a foundation for learning; how to design indoor play environments that allow children the broadest development of skills; and how to create outdoor play spaces that encourage vigorous movement and a wide sensory palette. Through art, storytelling, and the festival celebrations, this book is an invaluable guide to building a "family culture" based on the guiding principle of love--a culture that supports children and encourages the free development of each unique soul. Sharifa Oppenheimer offers a gift from the heart. Heaven on Earth is a practical, inspiring resource that brings the author's informed, intuitive understanding of young children into the heart of the home. "Sharifa Oppenhiemer has given the world a great gift in the pages of this book. The important child-development information is exquisitely combined with the best 'How-to's' I have seen in any book for parents. Her book, is a ready guide that insures joyful, enthusiastic children who learn easily and contribute to their families and society for a lifetime. I have delighted in every page and feel this is absolutely A must read for parents, grandparents, teachers, and perhaps everyone who will ever touch the life of a child." --Carla Hannaford, Ph.D., biologist and international educational consultant to 32 countries and author of Smart Moves: Why Learning Is Not All in Your Head and Awakening the Child Heart, Handbook for Global Parenting "This delightful book will be a wonderful resource for parents. They will certainly appreciate its warm, friendly, personal, and reassuring tone. I would have loved such a book when I was a young mother! For those whose children already attend Waldorf programs, it provides a helpful resource for creating a bridge between home and kindergarten. For others, this lovely book offers wonderful glimpses into the wise and nurturing practices of Waldorf early childhood education. In a world where childhood is increasingly 'media'ted and 'adult'erated, this book offers much-needed support for the protection of childhood. " --Susan Howard, chairperson, Waldorf Early Childhood Association of North America and coordinator, International Association for Steiner/Waldorf Early Childhood Education "Being a parent is a challenging assignment, but with the help of Sharifa Oppenheimer's book, Heaven on Earth, our work immediately becomes easier. This book is both heartfelt and practical. It offers sound parenting principles with down-to-earth examples of how to raise children with both insight and grace." --Jack Petrash, director, Nova Institute, and author, Navigating the Terrain of Childhood: A Guidebook for Meaningful Parenting and Heartfelt Discipline

The task of the Waldorf early childhood educator is to lead young children into a healthy relationship with their body. In this educators can work with anthroposophic doctors, who seek to redirect what has become diseased or malformed through actively engaging with Rudolf Steiner's picture of the human being in body, soul, and spirit.This volume collects the valuable contributions of two medical doctors, Johanna Steemans and Gerald Karnow, to recent WECAN conferences on the east and west coasts. The fundamental importance of early childhood for the health of the individual throughout life is presented with deep and compassionate understanding from the physician’s perspective. Key developmental stages and milestones are described afresh, and a path indicated that can help caregivers to 'read' in the physiology of the child what he or she needs in order to grow into a free adult.
