This manual, prepared by Mr. Charles A. Kunou, is the outgrowth of practical experience in the school room, and is designed to assist teachers of the third and fourth grades who have not had special preparation. The aim is to make the work as simple as possible, and to establish a correlation with other subjects, particularly arithmetic and geometry; and to this end the exercises are intended to assist the mental as well as the moral growth. The progression is methodical, the exercises are simple, and the materials are not expensive. The work is intended to produce useful articles which are the creative work of the child, instead of merely flat pieces of paper with names attached. The using of paste is avoided as much as possible, and a system of "flaps" in combining surfaces is employed.
