Kindergarten Education: A Study of Language Work in the Kindergarten


by Isabel C. French 1904

The following statement is based upon work done in the Horace Mann Kindergarten with the intention of making a record to be used as a basis for English work in the Elementary School. The record includes three phases of development during the kindergarten year: Increase of vocabulary. Power to relate words in clear statement. Ability to hear, choose and reproduce song, verse and story. Knowledge of a word and its correlated meaning precedes the stage where the word is to be translated into written characters. Each child enters rich in home experiences, but possessing varying degrees of correct speech. The kindergarten, where a close relation is maintained between action and word, or object and name, serves as a clearing-house for confused or wrongly comprehended words, as well as an orderly introduction to new ones.
