A Kindergarten-First-Grade Curriculum. Bulletin, 1922, No. 15
Bureau of Education, Department of the Interior
The need for a first grade curriculum based upon the work of the modern kindergarten has been frequently expressed, and the curriculum here presented is an effort to meet that need. It follows the Kindergarten Curriculum which was published as a bureau of Education bulletin in 1919 and is organized on the same general principle and the same plan. It is intended primarily for two groups of people--first grade teachers of children who have had a year of kindergarten work, and kindergarten primary supervisors who wish to organize the work of the kindergarten and primary grades on the same principle. This curriculum should also have value for kindergarten teachers by showing them how their work functions as a preparation for that which is to follow. Those who use this curriculum should have the Kindergarten Curriculum at hand for reference, since the work suggested for the first grade is based on that described in the Kindergarten Curriculum. It is hoped that the publication of these two curricula will stimulate kindergarten and first grade teachers to study and work together at their common problems. Such a study will help kindergarten teachers realize the children's kindergarten attainments most effectively. If this is done there will be no break between the work of the kindergarten and that of the first grade as there has frequently been in the past. (Foreword by Nina C. Vandewalker.)
