THE NURSERY CUTIES by Shari Bleichman, Melissa Bosler, Beth Hill 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 cots? 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 like that.n And: HDon't kissln spank her, give her a Great activity goes on in our Nursery.

THE GOLDEN AGE OF LEARNING by Christine Morse, Peg Savage, James Wait 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 way. 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 hat. 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 by Steve Arthur, Doree Citron, Melinda McMahan nHow I wish I had an easy life like the First Gradersl All they do is sleep,paint, and play? This is often on the lips of many Ninth Graders as they trudge through their exasper- ating day. 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, Continued...

SECOND GRADE by David Drake, Agnes Montgomery, Julie Warner 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 syllable. 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. KINGS OF THE PRIMARY by Susan Attridge, Lyn Kendrick, and Nancy Kohler This year the Third Grade class has made great strides in achieve- ment under Mrs. Upton. The day be- gins,like other classes, with open- ing exercises consisting of the Flag Salute, a hymn, and the Daily Prayer. Every child in the room gets a chance to choose the hymn and lead the exercises. Their favorite subjects are French, art and Cbelieve it or notJ arithme- tic. The Third Grade is not techni- cally a Carden class but it does in- A clude some Carden activities. Their has been enhanced that they operate reading it its reading interest by the library themselves. A librarian is elected every three weeks to keep the books in order and check them out. Ccontinued next columnjf CANNOT COMPLAIN by Ken Crow, Carol Mau, Randy Rice 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. GCONTINUED..Third Grade 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 the Campus.n
