Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 25, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, June 25, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD School preparation needs care By MARIE SORGARD Special to The Herald Are you getting your child ready for school? When I ask this question I do not expect you do a mental check on things such as whether or not you will need to buy a new coat to complete her wardrobe, or a supply of pencils and crayons. I am asking are you preparing her for the new world that she is about to enter? Until now, home and the immediate vicinity have, in all likelihood, provided the nucleus around which her world revolves. However, when she goes to school she is going to enter a world which is completely new to her and you can gradually prepare her for it with a bit of organized planning. When buying coloring books choose them carefully. Don't buy the first book you pick up because the price tag on it happens to coincide with the amount of change you had left in your purse after you paid for the groceries. Try to select thought provoking material at her age level. For instance, you might purchase a book that needs corrections. As an example, if she sees a picture that contains a neat row of houses on a tree bordered street and a horse grazing on one of the lawns she will know that the horse grazing on one of the lawns should be in the picture below which contains the barn and cows and chickens. At the- same time she. will realize that the apartment building in the farmyard should be on the vacant lot on the street across from the row of houses. Exercises such as this will increase her perceptiveness and will SALE! iSOTODO JN PRIZES CANADA GAMES LOTTERY Help Support Canadian Amateur Sports BUY YOUR TICKETS NOW FROM: SERVICE CLUBS BANKS CREDIT UNIONS LOCAL ORGANIZATIONS TRUST COMPANIES TREASURY BRANCHES illinium I97S help her to distinguish between different types of neighborhoods. City neighborhoods contain houses, streets, stores, offices, churches, playgrounds and schools. Country neighborhoods contain farms, houses, animals, fields of grain, elevators, schools and churches. Animals Teach her about animals, both tame and wild. While the elephant and tiger will be imaginative animals unless she has seen them at the circus, a story of where they live will help her to realize that the world is much bigger than she had realized. The area in which you live will determine who your child is going to meet when she goes to school. It is quite possible that she may encounter African, Pakistani, or Japanese children for the first time. Therefore it might be wise to explain the global family in a simple manner, using a picture book for illustrative purposes. So much for the theoretical side of life, now include a few practical preparations. Teach her to categorize by letting her help to put the silverware away when you do the dishes. As she puts the spoons in one compartment and the knives in another she will be learning that there is a special place for each item. Wash day This lesson can be extended on washday when she puts her 'clean stockings together in pairs and then places them in the correct drawer Teach her to tie her shoelaces and to fasten and unfasten her coat. It is very time consuming for a primary teacher if she has to helptjress every child in Hie class at dismissal time on a winter day.
