To the Teacher...
This workbook has been prepared especially for the second graders in Amish Parochial schools, to accompany the second grade-two reader, More Busy Times. Not only was it prepared with the children in mind, their teacher was also considered. The exercises were designed to train the children to work independently, with a minimum of teacher assistance.
The teacher will find tests in the back of this workbook. One test should be given each time the pupils complete the work in one unit. We suggest the teacher remove the tests with a sharp blade before she gives the workbooks to the pupils.
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 supplementary exercises that should help the teacher keep her second graders constructively occupied.
