Play/Recreation: Play In The Home And Its Environs
(Topic: Play, Recreation, Childrens Play, Childrens Recreation) The hope and glory of this country have always been its farm homes. Here have been nourished most of our great men. Here have been bred the sturdy self-reliance and in-dependence that is not easily led astray by mobs or demagogues, that does not follow each will-o'-the-wisp that flaunts across the times.
Play/Recreation: Play In The Home
(Topic: Play, Recreation, Childrens Play, Childrens Recreation) It has been said that the child learns more in the first six years of his life than he does in all the years that come after-wards. During these first years play constitutes his curriculum, the house or yard his schoolroom, and the mother his principal teacher. The home must furnish the place, the materials, and the companionship for this play, else these years will largely lack the training that...
Play/Recreation: Play In The Dooryard Of The Farm Home
(Topic: Play, Recreation, Childrens Play, Childrens Recreation) The first playground of the children is the house itself. During the years from two to five or six most of their play is in the yard. For the years that come after, larger grounds are mostly demanded, but still the yard is bound to be the center of the family sociability, and much of its play during the warmer months of the year. It should be suitable for such a use.
Play/Recreation: Some Experiences That Every Country Boy Should Have
(Topic: Play, Recreation, Childrens Play, Childrens Recreation) In the pioneer days, life offered to the boy in the country almost exactly what his spirit craved. There was a primitive open-air life, with some romance and a good deal of adventure. There was an opportunity for scouting and exploration ; there was the Indian fighting and hunting of bear or deer ; there was the fishing and the life of the woods and the camp fire.
Play/Recreation: The Improvement Of The School Ground
(Topic: Play, Recreation, Childrens Play, Childrens Recreation) The city schools are now probably acquiring twice as much ground for playgrounds as they were ten years ago. In congested sections these often cost forty or fifty thousand dollars an acre. In the country, on the other hand, although a school playground could usually be secured for fifty or a hundred dollars an acre, and the farming sections are prosperous, there has been little improvement.
Play/Recreation: Equipping The School Ground
(Topic: Play, Recreation, Childrens Play, Childrens Recreation) In many places it probably is not to be expected in the beginning that the school directors will purchase the equipment for the school yard out of the school funds, though this should usually be asked and may often be granted. In many districts the funds are now adequate for such purchase, and if the school officers are sympathetic and the law permits, there is no reason why it should not be done.
Play/Recreation: Organized Play In The School Yard
(Topic: Play, Recreation, Childrens Play, Childrens Recreation) Some teachers seem to feel that it is beneath their dignity to play with the children, and one often hears the old saw ' Familiarity breeds contempt.' Whenever I hear this quotation in this connection, I always feel like completing it by its implied condition. Familiarity reveals you as you really are. It leads to contempt if you are contemptible.
