A Greater Understanding of Waldorf Education
Scott B. Waltz, Ph.D
Focused and Engaged Kids
“The LMNOP Program was highly educational, and at the same time, thoroughly engaging. The children were enjoying themselves so much that learning seemed to be a by-product. Quite notably, a wide variety of skill areas was involved: literacy, poetry, music, modeling, crayon drawing, painting, physical movement, drama, and social skills…”
Layers of Creativity, Artistry, and Understanding
“Howard Schrager’s work is not Waldorf inspired, it is an example of what Waldorf can be with an experienced teacher, who has decades of teaching experience and who digs deeply into the pedagogy over the years. There are layers of creativity, artistry, and understanding in this work that came out of decades of work, artistry, and collaboration with others who are experienced and working with Waldorf and Anthroposophy.”
“Even if Multiplicando weren’t teaching, it would still be a great children’s story, with warm and funny characters, interesting adventures and one surprising discovery after another. The fact that this riveting story also teaches multiplication and its relationship to the other 3 mathematical processes, and teaches this all so clearly and thoroughly, makes Multiplicando a gift for the ages.”
From Hate to Love
“My daughter hated math all year in the first grade. Then we used King Maximo, and SHE LOVED IT!”
So Much Learning!
“Thank you so much for sharing your expertise, knowledge and creativity with us through your books! Ronan asked me, “Mommy, can my head explode from loving what I’m learning soooo much?” Thank you for helping us fan his flame.”
Numbers Come Alive
“We worked through the Number Knights as our first formal introduction to numbers. My daughters ate it up. You made the world of numbers come to life, not just for them, but also for myself.”
Learning Comes Alive
“I cannot adequately say how much I love your materials. It has been amazing to work with Sarah and the Number Knights. It makes things so alive, and the children feel as if they are IN the story. Thank you for writing these books so that parents, teachers and children can experience this!”
A Complete Experience
“Sarah is a masterpiece – you have woven such a complete experience for the reader, including therapeutic movement, song and speech – through story.”
“The children adored the story of King Maximo and loved drawing pictures of the shields which helped them to integrate the math concepts we were learning.”
My Favorite Part of Teacher 1st Grade!
“Using King Maximo and the Number Knights was my favorite part of teaching 1stgrade! My lessons on the qualities of the numbers were exciting for the children, easy to plan for me, and memorable for us all.”
Rounds of Applause From My Students
“I have used Howard Schrager’s King Maximo and Multiplicando in all of my classes to rounds of applause from my students. These characters do the impossible: they make math a warmhearted relationship, filled with adventure and beauty.”
