THE NURSERY CUTIES
by Shari Bleichman, Melissa Bosler,
Sh-h-h! Aren't they adorable, when
asleep? Asleep or awake,the precious
ones in the three and four year old
Nursery are living dolls.
We were easily convinced of this
after our whispered interview during
naptime with Mrs. Owen and Miss Giles
the loving and understanding teach-
ers in charge. Were we really ever
small enough to fit on those tiny
The conversation of these little
ones is always interesting,sometimes
amazing, and often astounding:
One little fellow happily greeted
Mrs. Owen with: HHello, Honey Bunch.H
Several little girls were sitting
in a corner. When some boys walked
up, they said: "Oh, go away: we're
hens laying eggsln
A small boy was walking along and
found a stone. He remarked: HOh,look,
here is a Rock of Ages. I'm strong

THE GOLDEN AGE OF LEARNING
by Christine Morse, Peg Savage,
The Kindergarten, fantasy-land of
play and paints, was once again vis-
ited by three members of our class.
Our visit brought back memories of
playing on swings, painting, and
even climbing up a slide the wrong
This year's Kindergarten of twenty-
one children is now preparing a pro-
gram for the Mothers' Club. In this
program they will sing a song for
each of the ten school months of the
year. This class of artists has even
painted special pictures to illus-
trate those months. There are pump-
kins for October, Santas for Decem-
ber, and bunnies for Easter.
About the hard-working side of
Kindergarten: The children are get-
ting a taste of what school life is
like by learning the consonants and
vowels. They already know their
numbers. Numbers are put on hats
and then the children paste the
correct number of colored designs to
correspond with the numbers on the
I'm sure everyone will agree that
Kindergarten is truly the Golden
Age of Learning. Congratulations to
Mrs. Scallan and Miss Scallan for
such wonderful teaching.
WORK, WORK, WORK

nHow I wish I had an easy life like
the First Gradersl All they do is
sleep,paint, and play? This is often

As I walked away from my visit with
Mrs. Swan and Mrs. Savage, I was
astonished and happy that I was in
the Ninth Grade. Did you know that
in the First Grade they have to make
up their work?
What is the reason for all this
hard work? The Carden method! Just
recently Berkeley Hall began using
this method. In learning spelling,
the children do not memorize words,

by David Drake, Agnes Montgomery,
The Second Grade has been learning
the Carden method this year. They
learn to spell without having to
study each word and pronounce words
at first sight. Mrs. Iwert pronouncesp
a word and the students repeat it,
then they sound it out and spell it.
Another way is by dictation. Mrs.
Iwert reads a sentence and the stu-
dents repeat it. Then they write the
sentence word by word, syllable by
When the election was held this
year for Governor, the Second Grade
also held an election, only it was
for the President of their class.
They had a voting stamp, booth, elec-
tion box, and tallies.
All class projects are done by the
students themselves without the help
of their teacher. A project they have
been doing is on grain. There are
headings on the wall such as wheat,
oats, and corn. Under the heading
they put different kinds of cereal
box tops. Some of the ones they had
were: Shredded Wheat was under wheat
Alpha Bits and Quaker Oats were .
under oatsg and Cornflakes and Trix
were under corn.

It is typical for all children to
complain about homework. Mrs. Hill,
the Fourth Grade teacher, has con-
quered this problem by graphically
pointing out the ratio of homework
to play at home.
Among other things done are five
reports during the year. The first
four deal with the study of Califor-
nia and the last with science.Along
with the first four reports, the
children are required to hand in a
diorama of life during this period
or a map. These reports are the
basis for the assemblies they give.
The year is made much more inter-
esting when the Fourth Graders
proudly display their hobbies.They
include such skills as model build-
ing, collections such as those of
stamps and coins,and many others.
Writing and English are practiced
when papers on the pupils' vaca-
tions are written. These along with
the required pictures are given
as a momento to the parents at the
end of the year.
In Mrs. Hill's opinion, this is
the most creative class she has
had. This is exemplified by the
dioramas, maps, and scenes which are
created by the pupils.
Monitors are chosen every week to
take care of the room's scrapbook.
To this, members of the class contri
bute pictures and articles concern-
ing their studies. The girls have
organized a Brownie Troop and they
have enjoyed making paper mache'
puppets and putting on shows. This
is the first troop since our own
and they also plan to plant a tree.
with all these privileges,though,
their conduct is shown on a behav-
ior music chart. Each pupil has his
picture on a note on the chart and
it moves forward or backward accord-
ing to his conduct.
The students carry on their class-
room in a businesslike manner, and
thanks to the excellent discipline
of Mrs. Upton, they are well on
their way to becoming nKings of
