Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Bobbie Kalman's acclaimed Historic Communities Series provides a close-up view of how people lived more than two hundred years ago. Colorful photos, many taken by Bobbie Kalman herself at restored historic villages across the country, help support the fascinating information. Children will have fun learning about:
-- early homes and the settler community
-- what people wore and the crafts they made
-- how settlers made their living
-- how they spent their leisure time
-- the values, customs, and traditions of the early settlers

One of the first priorities of an early settler community was building a school. Students of all ages shared one teacher and the same four walls year after year. A One-Room School describes how the teacher was entrusted with the responsibility of teaching reading, 'riting, and 'rithmetic. Children will enjoy seeing inside a one-room schoolhouse and discovering:
-- what subjects students learned
-- how children were disciplined by the teacher
-- games boys and girls enjoyed during recess
-- games, songs, and activities in which they can participate

Synopsis:

'A One-Room School' is a historic look at the days when that's all there was and what you learned in those schools.
