PREFACE

THE object of these Games is to introduce variety when it is needed in the ordinary school routine, and to form a means of recreation to the children when unfavourable weather makes the usual playtime impossible.

Those of the Games referring to special subjects, such as 'Sewing,' etc., may be used in the lesson time devoted to such subjects, and the 'Guessing Rhymes,' Nos. 51 to 97, may sometimes be given between lessons. For notes on these, see p. 87.

'Games for the Playground' and a few of those immediately preceding are old games with new rhymes.

It is hoped that some of the plays (Nos. 12 to 20, _e.g._) will help to teach the children important truths that are difficult for them to learn in the abstract, but which represented and practised in childish play may make an impression on their plastic little minds. Many of the Games are suitable for home use, and will probably be played there by the children after being learnt in school.

If the Games help to make school brighter and pleasanter for teacher and children their object will be gained.
