In the kindergarten 1 ! h* " becomes 'dwa're o t , the world ijby learning to see "or -notice glhe things about him, He Is eii- Scouraged to use his' senses of i taste, smell, and touch so that She is awakened to the d Iff err Jences in things, , ' . j Through his; experiences' Ae tdeyoiops concepts of time, J. space, and number. He devel- ops the ability" to t speak, to complete thoughts,' to repeat sounds, to use a pleasant voice, to tell his experiences,, and t o share hla feelings. H« learns to use p a i n t brush, chalk, or'pencil- aa a foundation for .handwriting, He develops the beginnings of read- Ing through placing signs on objects, carefully handling picture books, recognizing , likenesses and differences m the world about him,-and Interpreting events. In a sequence . ' o f pictures, ' ' He becomes acquainted with llie world of books and builds up a vocabulary that will'tic- press his feelings, his actions', and will tell what he means. Also, the child Is introduced to people who provide for his security and needs such as the nurse, fireman, policeman, and the postman. He learns to eat a good lunch, to decide how much food he needs, and to practice good table manners. He acquires good health habits based upon daily routines. He has the necessary immunizations, and various physical defects are often identified so [hat corrective measures can be taken early. He learns to care for himself and to abide by safety rules. The kindergarten experience provides the opportunity for the child to learn to be away from the mother, to interact with olher adults, and to get used) to being around many children. These basic adjustments are taken;care of so that the first gradevian be a valuable learning experience without emotional. Upsets. Kindergarten provides the basis for a pleasant attitude toward later schooling, which. !is a sound foundation for.Iater educators to build upon; All .. children can profit from this Opportunity. t.
