The Publishers would invite the attention of Schvol Officers and Teachers to this valuable contribution to the means of elementary instruction,
The Set comprises Twenty Tablets, mounted on ten cards, twenty-one by twenty-seren inches. Each of these cards, containing two Tablets, is complete in itself, and may be used independently of the others. The plan is original, and supplies a want which has been felt very generally by teachers in elementary schools.
These Tablets are especially adapted to the use of all Primary and ungraded District Schools. Some of them are also adapted to the lower classes of Grammar Schools, and to Intermediate Schools.
By means of these Tablets, the teacher is enabled to instruct a whole class or a school at the same time; and can sometimes accomplish in an hour what would require days of individual teaching. In connection with the slate and the blackboard, these Tablets afford important facilities for oral teaching, which experience has proved to be indispensable to the highest success in cleinentary instruction. Children love variety, and they must have it in school. Where these tablets are in use, there will be little or no occasion for the use of text-books during the first six months of the child's schooling.
They have been prepared with great care by a practical educator, who has made the subject of elementary teaching a study for years, and who has brought to their preparation precisely those qualifications which are requisite for such a task.
These Tablets have recently been adopted by the School Committees of
