When I first started going to school.
That was before they had kindergarden LOL. Most of us already knew our A B Cs and could count to 100 and read some.
Any how I went to a one room school house. Outdoor privys, Small building for coal storage, Central heat was the coal stove at the rear of the class room, Yes we had electric lights LOL. A recreational area with a ball diamond, swing set, tetter totter,
Oh, We use to walk to school. I walked maybe one mile each way. Got a little older I had a bike to ride.
We always had the same teacher for the 8 grades in the school. Went to high school they had one centralized building for that.
Any how one year the teacher was out for a length of time and we had a substitute. I was maybe in the 3rd or 4th grade. Every morning before classes started she use to read us a few pages from a childrens book. The stories were from the Uncle Wiggly series.
I use to enjoy listening to her read those stories in the morning. I have forgotten the story lines in the books but I always remember her taking the time to read them.
Thank you Substitute Teacher.
The book series. I just looked them up to see if they were located on the web
