Problem: An attempt to compare the rate of learning of colorful and abstract words of children in grade one. Materials: 1. Thirty words were selected to be used in three groups of ten words each. Each list consisted of five colorful and five abstract words. Colorful words are those which have much meaning for children and abstract words are those with little meaning. The words were printed on 3 x 11 inch flash cards in lower case letters. 2. Check sheets were made with spaces for checking the retention of words at three different times and pictures were made to enrich the colorful words. 3. Directions were prepared and given to each teacher who participated in the study. 4. Kuhlmann-Anderson Intelligence Test: Battery A. 5. Detroit Word Recognition Test: Form A [TRUNCATED]
