This is a really great blog about the importance and use of fairy tales in Waldorf education.  I'm also copying and pasting the list of fairy tales by ages below, from this link.


Three and Four Year Olds –
Sweet Porridge (Grimm 103)
Goldilocks and the Three Bears
Little Louse and Little Flea (Spindrift, Let Us Form A Ring)
The Giant Turnip (Russian)
The Mitten (Russian)
The Gingerbread Man
The Bun (cannot remember where The Bun originated for sure, I believe Russia)
The Johnny Cake (English)
The Hungry Cat (Plays for Puppets)
The Old Woman and Her Pig (English)
The Cat and the Mouse (English)
Little Red Hen
The City Mouse and The Country Mouse
Any fairy tale that has repetitive elements and a very simple story line would do!

Four and Five Year Olds:
The Three Billy Goats Gruff
The Three Little Pigs
The Pancake Mill (Let Us Form A Ring)
Mashenka and the Bear (Russian, Spindrift)
The Elves (Grimm 39)
Star Money (Grimm 153)  – I would say more for 5 year olds or even a six year old than a four year old, but that is just my own opinion.

Five and Six Year Olds:
The Frog Prince (Grimm 1)
Mother Holle (Grimm 24)
Little Red Cap (Grimm 25)
The Bremen Town Musicians (Grimm 27)
The Spindle, Shuttle and the Needle (Grimm 188)
The Hut in the Forest (Grimm 169)
The Queen Bee (Grimm 62)
The Seven Ravens (Grimm 25) – I didn’t tell this one until first grade
Snow White and Rose Red (Grimm 161) – we also used this one in first grade, but would be fine for a six year old in second year of Kindy.
The Princess in the Flaming Castle (Let Us Form A Ring)
Twiggy (Let Us Form A Ring)
The Donkey (Grimm 144)
Lazy Jack (English)
Tom-Tit-Tot (English)
Puss in Boots, sometimes also called The Master Cat
