SUGGESTIONS TO TEACHERS
SUGGESTIONS FOR USING THE DIALOGUES AND THE PICTURES. Two children may be selected to impersonate Kate and Frank, and the dialogue may be read in the usual way. Have the remaining children follow the reading and decide if the answers are correctly given. Children enjoy this, and several different pairs of children may be selected to repeat the reading. In the second and subsequent readings, different numbers may be used so that the children will be kept on the alert. Or, the girls of the class may represent Kate and the boys Frank, giving the answer called for when all are ready. Another way is to disregard the dialogue form, and have the sentences or paragraphs read in turn, all paying strict attention in order to note if correct answers are supplied in the elliptical sentences. Supplement the lessons given by frequent use of measures suggested.
Have the pictures carefully studied. Many of them are suitable for oral language lessons. Indeed, the entire book, if wisely used, will be of great assistance in reading and language, as well as in arithmetic.
