PREFACE

This Primer is written for the Beginners to permit
them to read with freedom and expression. Tne stories
have been chosen for their simplicity and for the repetition
which they contain. Four of them were written b� the
members of the First Year Teacher Training Class of 1933
as a class project fo- improving the readers for begiiners.
Some of the illustrations were made by Lazarus SamL.kange
who was a member of the class.

It is hoped that the reading may be taught 1'y the
story-sentence methoJ as soon as teachers become proficient
in teaching by this method. We would suggest tiat at first
the teacher pronounce any word which the reader dees not
know in the reading Ipssons, but as the Phonetio Lessons are
taught the reader will gradually be enabled to pronounce
the new words'independently of the teacher.

We wish to express our appreciation to Miss Relts and
Joseph Nyamurohwa who have helped in the editing of the
stories, also to the members'of the Teacher Training Classes
who have read over the manuscript and suggested. changes
in the wording, and also to the Teachers who have helped
and advised in the work.
