Studies in Elementary School Practice: A Harvest Festival in Kindergarten and Grades


by Frederick G. Bonser, Alice Thompson & Frank S. McCall 1911

The kindergarten program is the outcome of the experiences of the children and the teacher. The children contribute unorganized activities and unrelated ideas. The teacher, through emphasis and selection, relates, enriches, and interprets these ideas in the light of her larger experience which represents social experience. In order to interpret the isolated experiences of the individual children, the teacher must have some inclusive ideas which shall control the arrangement and the development of the program. All human experience has three aspects; relationship to nature, relationship to man, and the interpretation of these relationships. The great festivals of the year are a part of all children's experience, and as they are the outcome of the experience of the race, they seem to justify their place in the kindergarten program.
