1891 printing of the 1884 copyrighted text. The author is credited as Teacher in the Children's Aid Society Schools in New York City. Influenced by Froebel's education by occupations, emphasizing experience and action in place of books and abstract thinking, in the spirit of the New Education. The chapters cover arithmetic, weights and measures, form and geography, color and form, language, busy work, miscellaneous, and slate work. The exercises in these subjects use ordered directions or operations and lists of questions. The Schultz Archive's copy is roughly the complete text.
