Emma Nielson's School Room Description, 1888
Emma Nielson Student Exercise Book Page: Schoolroom and Schoolyard Description
My teacher is Miss Cobden. She is very nice. She is good to me. In my school there are pictures on the wall, a clock and some blackboards. Then there are three doors, a desk and a basket under the table. There are six windows five rows of desks and nine desks in each row. Then we have maps on the door. I like this room. I think it is nice, both inside and outside. On the outside of this building, it is brick. It has three yards. One is the teacher's yard, the other the boys and the other the girls yard. In the teacher's yard there are flowers and grass and in the middle of the grass there is a path so the teacher may go out into the street.
