MIGRANT SCHOOL.
ANDREWS, CARL; AND OTHERS
THE USE OF AN ALL-PURPOSE ROOM FOR A SUMMER PROGRAM CREATED A HAPPIER ATMOSPHERE FOR CHILDREN, GAVE EACH CHILD THE OPPORTUNITY TO PROCEED TO A NEW ACTIVITY WHEN READY, AND ENABLED EACH TEACHER TO SUPERVISE A GREATER NUMBER OF ACTIVITIES. ACTIVITIES WERE RELATED TO SUCH FAMILIAR IDEAS AS THE OUT-OF-DOORS, TRAVEL PATTERNS, AND FAMILIES, SO THAT PHYSICAL ACTIVITY AND MOTIVATION FOR READING, WRITING, AND ARITHMETIC COULD BE PROVIDED. THE CHILDREN WERE EXPOSED TO NEW PLACES AND JOB OPPORTUNITIES. A MID-MORNING SNACK WAS PROVIDED, AND A WELL-BALANCED LUNCH ALLOWED CHILDREN TO TRY UNFAMILIAR FOODS. THE TEACHERS WERE ABLE TO GIVE INSTRUCTION IN TABLE SETTING AND MEAL PREPARATION, SINCE THE EATING AREA WAS IN THE SAME MULTIPURPOSE ROOM. AN ENROLLMENT AND ATTENDANCE CHART SHOWED 81 PERCENT ATTENDANCE FOR THE SESSION, A WEIGHT AND HEIGHT CHART INDICATED THAT ALL THE CHILDREN MADE GAINS. EXPERIENCES INCLUDED THE MAKING OF HAND PUPPETS, TIN CAN SPIN REELS, AND COLLAPSIBLE CLOTHES TREES.
