Product description...

Exploring How Children Learn in the Lower Grades

Easy to read, matter-of-fact and practical, this book does not offer ready-made lessons, but rather, it guides teachers on how to create their own; how to be successful in the lower grades of a Waldorf classroom.

“This unique book is filled with both the practical aspects of Waldorf Education and the deeper insights into why we do what we do. I have found it very helpful in my preparations and I highly recommend it to new and experienced teachers alike.”

Susan Goldstein, Waldorf Teacher
Pedagogical Mentor & Consultant
Santa Cruz, CA USA


“BEFORE” (What parents should know);



“MATH” (The very beginning);

“IMAGE: The Heart of Waldorf”;



And much more…

Author Information...

Else GöttgensElse Göttgens first encountered Waldorf Education at the age of 18. She immediately and passionately espoused the pedagogy and took on her first class of children at the Zeist Steiner School in 1941. Thus began her remarkable career which has influenced countless lives at schools in the Netherlands, the UK and much of the US, including Hawaii. Still today, she regularly visits schools from coast to coast, on both sides of the Atlantic. A rebel at heart and always reluctant to take anything on authority, Else laughingly admits that what has helped her most in her teaching and mentoring work is the fact that she herself has made so many mistakes along the way. Now over 90, she has learned a lot! Waldorf Education in Practice sums up her experience as a teacher of children as well as a teacher of teachers.

Nancy Peek Youngdahl, author of My Nana Was A Free-Range Kid
Outskirts Press is the way to go if you want to publish a book after getting so many rejections from the Big publishers. They only want the experienced authors who have published lots of books in the past. Outskirts helped me with the whole process and I am very pleased with the result.

Amy Jordan, author of Dance Because You Can: 5 Steps to Transform Trauma into Triumph
Outskirts Press has published and marketed two books I have written: ‘Dance Because You Can: 5 Steps to Transform Trauma into Triumph’ and ’26 Tips for Easier Living with Diabetes.’ This was my first foray into publishing a book. What was paramount for me with Outskirts is my ability to maintain full ownership of the content of my books. This is relevant due to the documentary feature film about my life premiering soon. I was able to communicate my vision to the editing and author support team. I had specific design ideas that were completely created to my specifications. The marketing team supported the book on Amazon, Barnes & Noble along with countless other author platforms. ‘Dance Because You Can’ was represented at the National Book Fair in New York City. The book was also the 2019 EVVY Award Winner for best self-help. Thank you Outskirts for supporting my intention to spread hope and possibility through my writing.

John J. Wells, author of Die Like A Dog
I had no idea how to go about publishing a book, and Outskirts took me through the process step by step with clear instructions and explanations so that I never made a false step. I am tremendously pleased by all that Outskirts did for me, and the final product is exactly what I wished. I will certainly print my other books through them.

Edward Goodliffe, author of Nailed It: The Story of the Granum Gripper
Having lived through an amazing adventure migrating from London to a little town in Western Canada and establishing a nail manufacturing plant, I wanted to make sure the story was preserved. I had never attempted to write a book before and had no idea what was involved. I came across Outskirts Press. The whole experience has exceeded my expectations and the finished product is excellent. Everyone I have dealt with has been friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. Being from Britain, I wanted to retain the English spelling of words rather than the American way and the Editor was most accommodating. Where she really excelled was her ability to make suggestions for improving my choice of words without changing the meaning or my style of writing. She knew precisely what I was trying to say and she knew how to say it better than I did. The review process was so well thought out. To have three reviews was precisely what was needed. The icing on the cake is that the quality of both the hardback and the paperback version is first class. The cover is perfection, the paper quality is excellent, the text is clear and the colour photographs are vibrant. Thank you Outskirts Press for a job well done.

Brenda Marie Black, author of The Bella Rose & Dianthus Bobby
Thanks to the entire team at Outskirts Press! As a first-time author, there’s been much I’ve learned about getting a book published and I am glad Outskirts Press was recommended to me by an author friend who was published with Outskirts Press. Indeed, my publishing experience with Outskirts Press has been rewarding and positive; and, I received guidance and assistance along the way. The quality of my book in all versions is outstanding.

Barbara A. Cefalu, author of The Adventures of Patty-Cat, Kittle, Their Friends, and the Gnomes
It’s been a marvelous experience, having eight books published by Outskirts Press. My Author Representative was remarkable, smart, kind, and helpful and she has coddled me through it all. And all the others! Thank you everyone.

Rick Lawin, author of Legend of Tierra del Puma
I’m new at this writing stuff and self-publishing. And, being a guy, I have a hard time reading directions! But, I took the plunge. My initial contact with Outskirts quickly responded to my emails then did several telephonic follow-ups with me. Her knowledge and honest assessments of my needs convinced me to fly with Outskirts. In a world of electrons and emails, it is refreshing to deal with folks who are professional, know their craft and show a personal side. Please ensure my thank you goes to all involved in this project. If I am crazy enough to do this again, it will be Outskirts that will bear the brunt of my attempts to scribble words into readability.
