Class work will be resumed again on Tuesday morning, Apr! placed on reading readiness in th past few years in the Mason Cit\ schools. Spent Preparing- According to Miss Kathleer McCann, kindergarten supervisor [torn the Mankato State Teachers college, who recently visited Mason City: "Veiy often the kindergarten teacher is asked 'Do you teach reading?' The answer to this question is definitely 'No that is we teach no formal reading in the kindergarten. The entire nine months of this year and in many cases several months of the following year are spent in preparing the child for reading. In other words the kindergarten vear is a period in which the child'is helped to get ready for his attack on printed material." "This state of readiness is attained earlier by some children than by others but authorities are quite generally agreed that the majority of children learn 'to read more easily after they, have ·eachad a mental age of at least V years," Miss McCann said. They are quite generally agreed also that much growth is due to nature and cannot be hurried while other development depends upon the environment and can be Jrovided in the curriculum. The cmdergarten program is planned o allow time for natural growth and while that is taking place to provide the child with many and varied experiences which build up certain habits, attitudes and ·kills needed for actual reading. Complex Activity J: There is 110 one part of the undergarten program which can )e designed as-'reading readiness.' Since reading is a complex' activ- ty involving emotional, social, ihysical and mental development he whole kindergarten setup con- ributes toward helping the child ?et ready for it. "From the very first day of chool the teacher plans for acli- ities which will prevent physi- al strain and for those that will ncourage physical development 3he helps the child adjust to so- ial situations and to establish motional stability. She makes u^e f every opportunity to help him nlarge his vocabulary, to length- n his span of attention, to solve is own problems, to do logical hinking, to express himself clear- y and easily and to establish good wfc habits. To accomplish all his as well as to stimulate a de- re to read, the teacher plans a ch experimental environment ·hich includes excursions, con- ructive activities, pictures, books, lories, poems, discussions, dram- i conversation, observa- s and practical experi- in Today's Popular Design by Carol Aimes ~ -- ~ ~*--«»v«-*v ii4i4v;»icu4i cloth scrvi-- -..,, for'popurar d"es'ignl r0 "" US ° d when orderin * vXtKas and Season City Globe-Gazette t, 119 West Nineteenth Street, New York.
