The purpose of this study is to plan and informally try out a series of language activities which will enrich the speaking and listening vocabularies of first graders with no kindergarten experience. The construction of a simple background inventory will be necessary to find the child's previous experiences. A check-list will record growth and reactions. It is hoped that the integrated language activities will develop habits of attention and create within each child a lasting desire to seek information concerning the world about him. Many of the children in the school used in this study have below average economic and social backgrounds. In many instances both parents must work leaving the children without parental supervision. More than half of the parents are poor with less than high school educational backgrounds -- their occupations being mainly domestic work.
