To the teacher...
This workbook has been prepared especially for third graders in Amish Parochial schools, to accompany the second grade-three reader, More New Friends. 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 workbook 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 third graders constructively occupied.
