These Tables are generally used as Rostrum Lessons ; but the most effectual and striking plan is to have out several children round the room, each one giving out, in turn, and the School, generally, repeating after them. Another method is to have out one or more Monitors, to question the School, viz.-M. Twice two. C. Four. M. Three times 2. C. Six. Again,-M. Two and 2. C. Four. M. Two from 4. C. Two. M. Twice 2. C. Four. M. Twos in 4. C. Two. M. Two is what part of 4 ? C. The half, &c.
Till the children are tolerably perfect, however, this must be done by the Teacher himself; and, indeed, when the children are quite perfect, occasionally.
These plans not only apply to the foregoing Tables, but also to those that follow.
4 farthings are 1d. 5 farthings are 11d.
6 farthings are 14d. 7 farthings are 12d. 8 farthings are 2d. &c. to 48 farthings are 12d. or 1s.
Twenty pence are one and eight pence,
That I can't afford to lose;
That will buy a pair of shoes.
That sum's paid for certain fees ;
That will buy five pounds of cheese,
This we're told is just a crown;
That is known throughout the town.
This sum once my father spent;
Which for a quarter's schooling went.
One hundred pence are eight and four pence,
This we're taught in th' Infant School;
Thus we end this useful rule.
The wire-drawer, too, we're told,
16 Drams make 1 Ounce. 16 Ounces .. 1 Pound. 28 Pounds.. 1 Quarter of a Cwt.
4 Quarters.. 1 Cwt. 20 Cwt. .. 1 Ton.
