SECTION II. 6. Before proceeding to the questions in this Section, those chil. dren, who have not previously learned, should be exorcised in count. ing, in the manner recommended in Article I. till they can readily count to one hundred. This task may soon be accomplished by such: as have gone through the preceeding section and made themselves fainiliar with the method of forming numbers by tho successive addition of units. The teacher will, however, be able to facilitate the progress of those, who have already learned the games of the numbers from one to ten, inclusive, by showing them how the paines of the succeding numbers up to one hundred, are nearly all forined by inflections and successive repetitions of the names of these ten first. Thus thirteen is. three and ten, fourteen, four and ten, &c. up to nineteen, which is nine and ten. Now the addition of obe more unit completes the sum of ten and ten, or two tens, or twenty ; after which the names are formed by repeating the number of tens, as troo tens and one, or twenty-one, two tens and two, or twenty-two, &c. The names of the succeeding tens up to nine tens, or finely, are all formed in like manner, as three tens or thirty, four tens, or forly, &c. After having learned to count one hundred the little pupils will have acquired such a knowledge of the law by which numeration proceeds, that they will find no difficulty in extendidg the process to higher pumbers, whenever occasion shall require.
