The Early Years: Other Occupations

Other Occupations

"But the teacher must be on her guard. Some children will show signs of fatigue, and she must know when it would be wise to change the occupation or when a little encouragement is the wiser course." 

"In the summer-time much of all this can be done out of door; games, jumping, ball games, and even stories..."

A Few Occupations:

  • Singing Hymns
  • Prayer & Bible Stories 
  • Learning Poetry, of the child's choosing
  • Acting out Fables
  • Play with letters & numbers ("picking out letters, making figures/letters on a chalkboard or sand tray, or work with counters")
