New Materials for the Primary Grades
by Society's Committee on New Materials of Instruction - 1921
The materials assembled by the sub-committee on the primary grades are presented in this chapter in three sections, according as they are designed for use in the first, the second, or the third grade. The project materials for the third grade naturally fell under classification of school subjects, as: history, geography, arithmetic. Those for the first and second grades, because each project involved several of the tools of learning, were more difficult of organization, therefore more inclusive terms were used as: seasonable, special occasions. The chairman regrets that much valuable material came too late to be used. Readers may find it of interest to refer also to the "Reading Exercises Based on Children's Experiences" presented as Chapter I of the earlier report in the Nineteenth Year-book, Part I, of the Society.
