PREFACE 



For years the most progressive educators have been urging that 
only good literature should be used in school readers. Some authors 
of primers have thought it impossible to provide such material with- 
in the vocabulary that beginners can learn with ease. Others have 
used a little real literature with a large amount of unrelated and 
uninteresting material specially prepared for the sake of word repe- 
tition and phonic drill. 

Experience proves that all children are interested in and enjoy 
the simple folk tales, which are the literary products of many minds 
and have survived the centuries, because they represent certain uni- 
versal human experiences and satisfy certain common needs of 

, > - -' > 
, , 

childhood. Through co*Ji'.tle3 repetitions, from one generation to 
another, they have assuir-ec: a form marked by simplicity and a 
unique literary charm. 

5 > 3 \ 3 > 5 3 

After years of careful v^crk we present some of these tales so 
as to utilize the child's love for the stories and make an easy road 
to reading. Avoiding the long struggle through forced interest, 
and the devious byways of artificial methods, we start the child at 
once into the realm of good, appropriate literature.

OUTLINE OF PHONIC WORK 

For detailed explanation, see Primary Manual, p. 56 

There need be no phonic work with the first story, but, after 
its completion, the drill with consonant elements should begin 
and continue daily. 

While reading the second story, the consonant work should 
be 011 r in red, h in lien, p in pig, and I in little. 

With the third story, the consonant drill is on n in not, d in 
dog, y in you, and c in cat. Here drill in the phonic series 
should begin, and four of these should be done while reading this 
story. 

With the fourth story, the consonant lessons are on m in man, 
s in so, b in but, and tli in then, and drills on the phonic series 
from 5 to 8. 

The consonant work while reading the fifth story is with / in 
fox, t in to, g in get, and k in kill, and phonic series from 9 to 12. 

During the reading of the sixth story, the phonic drill will be 
with cr in cry, wli in why, and qu in quench, and phonic series 
from 13 to 16. 

The consonant drills with the seventh story should be with 
cli in chicken, sn in snout, and sk in sky, and a thorough review 
of all phonic series already taught. 

While reading the eighth and ninth stories, the consonant 
work will be with gr in gruff, tli in thank, and tr in trip. Com- 
plete the series from 17 to 20 inclusive-, and give a thorough 
review of all previous phonic drills. When this is done, the 
consonant elements will have been mastered. It will be noticed 
that the consonant elements are taught from words that have 
been taught in a former story. When the Primer is completed, 
there should have been thorough drill also 011 twenty of the 

phonic series.
