Elementary School Organization and Administration

By Henry J. Otto | Go to book overview
A free period each day, frequently at the opening of school in the morning, has been found very useful by some teachers. During this time pupils are given special opportunity for creative self-expression or to exploit some interests which may have been generated the previous day or at home. Children bring in and prepare, display, or discuss materials they have brought from home or the library. Much has been written about the need for encouraging creative self-expression, but few programs show that school practice has provided for it.Additional guiding principles are: subjects making similar demands on pupils should be alternated with subjects of a different type to avoid fatigue and monotony; subjects which are closely related in content should be arranged so that the work can be integrated; subjects requiring the finer muscular coordinations, like penmanship and drawing, should not come immediately after physical-education periods; physical education should not follow immediately after lunch periods.
