A FEW WORDS TO THE TEACHER.




\V .EN Little Mary (or any other little girl or boy) knows all the letters
perfectly, let the teacher turn over a page and pronounce one of the mono-
syllables. Do not say a, m, am-but say am at once, and point to the
word. When the child knows that word, then point to the next, and say
as, and be sure to follow the same plan throughout the book. Spelling
lessons may be taught at a more advanced age; but it will be found that a
young child will learn to read much more quickly if they be dispensed with
in the Primer. In words of more than one syllable, it is best to pronounce
each syllable separately, car, pet,-po, ker,--and so on. In the lesson on
." Things in the Room," point out each thing as the child reads the word, and
indeed, wherever you can, try to associate the word with its actual meaning.
Show a child the word coach as a coach goes past, and she will recollect
that word again for ever. In the Lesson on the Senses," make the child
understand how to feel cold and heat, by touching a piece of cold iron or
marble, and by holding the hand to the fire,-how to smell, to hear, to see,
and to taste. In the Lesson on Colours," be sure to show each colour as
it is read; and endeavour to make every Lesson as interesting as you can.
Never weary a child with long lessons. The little poem at the end is
intended to be read to the child frequently, that she may gradually learn it
by heart.

MY MOTHER.
.. Who fed me from her gentle breast,
S And hush'd me in her arms to rest,
S And on my cheek sweet kisses prest ?
My Mother.

When sleep forsook my open eyes,
S Who was it sung sweet lullaby,
And soothed me that I should not cry ?
My Mother.

Who sat and watch'd my infant head,
When sleeping on my cozy bed;
And tears.of sweet affection shed ?
My Mother.

Who lov'd to see me pleased and gay,
And taught me sweetly how to play,
And minded all I had to say ?
My Mother

Who ran to help me when I fell,
And would some pretty story tell,
Or kiss the place and make it well ?
My Mother.

Who taught my infant heart to pray,
And love God's holy book and day;
And taught me wisdom's pleasant way ?
My Mother.
And can I ever cease to be
Affectionate and kind to thee,
Who was so very kind to me,
My Mother ?
Ah, no! the thought I cannot bear,
And if God please my life to spare,
I hope I shall reward thy care,
My Mother.
And when I see thee hang thy head,
'Twill be my turn to watch thy bed,
And tears of sweet affection shed,
My Mother.
For God, who lives above the skies,
Would look with vengeance in his eyes,
If I should ever dare despise
My Mother.
