The extent to which children will succeed or fail in school is determined by the type of beginning they have in school. It is therefore important that beginners have a beginning that will serve as a good foundation for the upper elementary grades. In view of these obligations to the child, it is necessary that all teachers of primary grades interest themselves in curricula development and program making. "Today education is accepted as being the complete socialization of the individual." We no longer expect the pupil to get something definite from school, such as we would go to the store to purchase a doll. Education is a process and not a result. Education is the process of adjusting the individual to the world in which he lives. In view of the facts stated above the purposes of this thesis are as follows: 1. To outline a definite program that may facilitate the work of the writer with the primary children of the Hebert High School. 2. To plan a program which may be carried out with the aid of the children to attain desired results. 3. To check progressive programs followed by other teachers of primary grades.
