TEACHERS' AIDS

Success with the Child's World Readers is in no wise dependent on the use of the chart, manual, or cards.

Modern teachers of reading, however, recognize the saving of time and effort to be accomplished for both their pupils and themselves by the use of cards, chart, and manual, and look to the publisher to provide these accessories in convenient form and at moderate cost.

The following aids are therefore offered in the belief that they will make the work of the teacher, trained or untrained, more effective.

Child's World Reader Charts......................$6.00 (10 beautiful charts in colors 27x37 20 lessons)

Child's World Manual.............................75c (Suggestions and outlines for first 5 grades)

Child's World Word Cards........................$1.00 (129 cards 258 words in Primer vocabulary)

Child's World Phrase Cards........................75c (48 cards 96 phrases)

Child's World Phonic Cards...................80c (80 cards printed both sides)
