PREFACE.

The :iim of the present work, as the title implies, is to sug-
gest program <Tift and Occupation Work for a year in kinder-
garten. The home with its interests, and simple nature work,
form the basis of the outline, and as far as possible home plays
and IK Hue play methods have been carried over as true kinder-
garten links between the home and the school.

The outline has been used in practical experience in two
public kindergartens for a number of years, and the authors
have suggested no plan of work which may not be carried out
with classes of twenty children or more.

Large materials, including the building gifts, enlarged tab-
lets, sticks, and rings, have been used, also larger blocks for group
work building on the floor and in a sand box. Sea shells and
large seeds have been used with great success for outlining and
designing. In addition to kindergarten play material, the use
of toys is urged, also the utilizing of home materials, such as
empty boxes, spools, pictorial catalogues, etc., for constructive
work.

The colored posters are a suggestion for a new and very
effective form of brush work, giving practice in the putting on
of washr-.

In presenting this outline, it is hoped that it may be used
only as suggestive. In some cases the occupation for the day

iv Preface.

would cover a number of days' work, and the kindergartner
must accept the book as she is able to interpret it in her own
kindergarten.

Much inspiration for the outline has been gained from Dr.
Dewey's University Primary School plans. \Ve are also in-
debted to Miss Louise Green of the William Street Kindergar-
ten, Springfield, for original work along the line of illustration.

Much of the constructive work in paper and bristol board
has been found in Knapp's Raffia and Reed Weaving, to which
frequent reference is made.
