Many of you contacted us to find out where you might be able to get a copy of the book we mentioned: The Swedish Drill Teacher by M. H. Spalding.
Originally published in 1910, this book gives the most comprehensive
explanation of Swedish Drill that we've found. Charlotte Mason used
Swedish Drill exercises as part of her physical education program for
We're happy to announce that The Swedish Drill Teacher
is now available as a free e-book on our site. This 88-page how-to
manual will walk you through the various positions and movements, with
diagrams and photographs to help. Plus it will explain how to combine
various positions and exercises to make a Swedish Drill lesson.
You'll also find hints on teaching a Swedish Drill lesson
effectively and ideas for making Swedish Drill fun for younger
children. There is even a lesson form that you can use in preparing
your own Swedish Drill lesson.
We hope you will enjoy this free e-book! Download it, take a look, and let us know what you think.
