MRS. SWAN'S FINE-FEATHERED
lf you entered The world of a First Grader for one day
you would find that there would be much to be accom-
plished. For a starter, the students are learning word
problems and "need problems" in arithmetic. An ex-
ample is "John has 2 marbles, Jim has 3, They want lO,
how many more do they need?"
The First Graders are way ahead of Themselves in many
subiects. ln reading they will use three Carden books
and Two "Dick and Jane" books, one of which will be a
Second Grade reader.
Saying Their "wh's" as in "whether" sometimes presents
a problem, some say "whith."
These children are learning about fish. They write papers
or draw pictures of various kinds of fish and bring them
to share with the class. The purpose of this research is
to enrich the child's experience at school. Many parents
are very pleased with it,
The First Grade contains many creative artists with great
imagination. Some even draw houses showing per-
The First Graders will read three classics this year, one
of which will be "Peter Rabbit."
With all this curriculum the First Graders are fine ex-
amples of Berkeley Hall.

The Kindergarten of Berkeley Hall doesn't con-
sist ot lust naps, stories, playing, singing, eating,
more playing, and more stories. They are also
busy learning with the Carden Method. They
learn all the letters and their sounds, the num-
bers up to nine, how to sound out words, and
read simple sentences.
Ot course, it isn't all work. They play in the
sandlooxes, on the bicycles, on the merry-go-
round, and on the swings. All this is accompanied
by the catchy song "Batman," as the Ninth Grade
can bear witness. One day the pre-school parents
came, cleaned up and painted many of the
It is generally conceded that the biggest thrill
of the year was the acquisition ot' eight new
desks in the room to help with studying.
All in all the present Kindergarten has made a
lot of improvements since our time in that grade.

SECOND GRADE SCHOLARS
Bonnie Swan SQ Rich Asher
The Second Grade scholars are participating in
many new experiences under the guidance of
Their new Teacher Mrs. Linke.
Mrs. Linke stresses the importance of citizenship
to the future voters, Discipline is emphasized.
She also teaches the students the use of proper
manners. ln the cafeteria the girls sitldown be-
fore the boys, and if a student crosses in front
of a teacher, he must say excuse me. If a child
complains rather frequently he becomes a bona-
fide member of the Complaint Club. Oddly
enough this is not considered an honorl?l
The Second Grade has a very democratic sys-
tem. Presidents and vice presidents are elected
by secret ballot. After the flag salute, all those
who wish to share their reasons for being grate-
ful for the United States remain standing and are
called on by the president. A motto is learned
A budding library is in the making and book
reports are given every two weeks. These for-
tunate, energetic pupils never run out of new,
different, and exciting things to do with a
teacher like Mrs. Linke brimming over with
fascinating and interest-stirring ideas.
