Group I

The first lesson is easy. It introduces letters which are in Group I. See instructions in Scout Field Book for making and using wigwag flags.

In corners of the room each Sender sends Group I - E , T, A, 0, I, N, S. After sending it in the order given, the Sender mixes the signals and sends them several times while the Scouts call out the letters after they are sent, one at a time. This requires four or five minutes, and is followed by a Go Down.

Group I - Letter Go Down

Line up each team in a corner of the room, in a single front rank, with its Sender a few paces away, facing the team. The Sender transmits a letter to the first Scout in the line. If he calls it correctly the first time it is sent, he keeps his place; if he fails, he goes to the foot of the line. Send a signal to each Scout, then review the signals and conduct another Go Down, Several rounds should complete the lesson. The Scouts may not be letter-perfect at its conclusion, but most of them, through their failures, will see the necessity for buddies to practice together at home before the next meeting in preparation for Signal Touch.
