Ask a Waldorf Teacher: How Can I Encourage My Older Children to Teach My Younger Children?

Every Wednesday our members get to ask Waldorf teacher Diane Power questions about their homeschooling experience, Waldorf education and more. These Q & A sessions are posted on the member blog every week so you have access to all the past Q & A sessions.

Question from Member: How can I better encourage (lightly structured) teaching down with my children, 12, 10, 7? Older one teaching younger one? – O. A.

Response from Diane: Regarding older children teaching younger ones, you could make it as part of the review work of the older student to bring the material to the younger. They could come up with ideas for the drawings or different ways to write a story review, come up with a project, teach a favorite song from their time in the younger grade. Also whatever subject they are passionate about could be brought to those younger or older.
