Excerpt from Manual and Guide for Common Schools: For the Use of Teacher and Pupil Rea ding: Not more than five classes; and where it can be done, let the Fifth Reader be omitted for a whole or part of the term. If reading is care fully taught, we do not need the Fifth Reader in the ungraded schools. In cases where the Fifth Reader cannot be banished, it is well to secure some collateral reading, and place the members of the Fourth Reader class with those of the Fifth, for the purpose of arousing some emulation on the part of the pupils; where this cannot be secured the readers may be used day about. Spelling: Do not permit more than three classes in this branch; two are better. If you spell everything in the reader as the class progresses, there is no necessity for purchasing the spelling book before the pupil advances to the Fourth Reader. Penmanship: There should be but one class in this branch, and all should be enrolled in. It until the teacher is satisfied that the persons excused have a pretty thorough knowledge Of the subject, as well as being able to write a good, plain hand. Have all the younger pupils write at each time for this exercise, and do not omit the class work for any cause whatever. Arithmetic: Do not permit more than three classes in the text, viz: the Primary, Intermediate. And Advanced. The Primary should get a thorough knowledge of the fundamental rules only during the year; the Intermediate should complete the book to Percentage, and the Advanced should complete the book.
