To the Teacher...
This workbook has been prepared especially for second graders in Amish parochial schools, to accompany the first volume of the second grade reader, Busy Times. Not only was the book prepared with the children in mind, their teacher was also considered. The exercises are designed to train the children to work independently, with a minimum of teacher assistance.
No teacher should try to teach the lessons in this book without the help of the Teacher's Manual. The manual contains detailed instructions and suggestions, plus many supplementary exercises that should help the teacher keep her second graders busy.
Tests to be given at the end of each unit are found in the back of this workbook. They may be removed with a sharp blade before the teacher hands the book to the pupil.
