There are now in the United States nine thousand kindergartens, in which more than four hundred thousand children, mostly between the ages of 4 and 6, are taught according to the methods of the Froebel kindergarten, more or less modified to correspond to accepted principles of education and to American life and American forms of school organization. Most of the kindergartens are included in the public-school systems of cities and towns, and most of the kindergarten children later attend the public schools. One of the most persistent questions of kindergarten is how to bring about a better adjustment between the kindergarten and the first grade of school. This question has interest alike for kindergartners and teachers of primary grades in the schools, as well as for school officers responsible for the making of courses of study. This paper was prepared to assist in answering this question. Contents of this bulletin include: (1) Adjustment between kindergarten and first grade; and (2) Double sessions in the kindergarten. (Contains 2 tables and 2 footnotes.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
