Tests for preparing for school

When my eldest daughter was five years old, I began to seriously think about her readiness for school. All the friends in one voice said that you definitely need to pass a test of school readiness. I did not understand what it was for. But yielding to these conversations, she nevertheless took her daughter to a children’s psychological center.

Test for determining school readiness Kerna-Yierasika

This test is pretty simple. It consists of three parts. At first, the daughters offered to draw a man. Then it was necessary to write off the phrase written in letters: He ate soup. The third part consisted of copying ten points.

All tasks were rated on a five-point scale. A child is put on readiness for school if the sum of points for all three tasks is from two to nine points.

My daughter scored five points, which is a very good result.
But I was not going to give my daughter to school from the age of five, so I just put this test away on the shelf.

School preparation courses

But even despite the fact that my daughter was ready to go to school, I still gave her to special training courses.

Classes were three times a week. The children wrote graphic dictations, circled the figures in dots, read and solved problems with a first-grade textbook.

I proudly told everyone that my child is already free to read and solves problems well.

Waldorf School

But then one day I met one mother, who began to scold her son, that he still does not speak fluent Italian, does not understand English well, and does not have time to do it in physics.

I actively assented to this mother until her son, Losers, approached her. The boy turned eight years old – nine. Frightened eyes and a pale face clearly did not talk about the child’s comfortable psychological and physical health.

That day I realized that I was doing everything wrong. These were my wishes, not the wishes of my daughter. It was necessary to do something and do it urgently.

We did not go to the next lesson. You should have seen how happy the daughter was when, instead of the class she hated reading, we went to the park.

Then fate brought me to the director of the Waldorf School. And I realized that I wanted my daughter to study there, so that they could see a person in her, did not humiliate and did not cause an aversion to study.

Now my daughter is studying in the state Waldorf school. She loves to learn. He knows two languages ​​perfectly.

I gave the younger daughters to the Waldorf kindergarten. They are not taught there to read or write. The child learns all this in the first grade. After all, he came to school to study, not to earn grades, but to gain knowledge. Grades in this school is not set.

Of course, everyone must decide for himself how and where his child will learn. I just talked about my choice and the choice of my children.
