HISS LILLIAN ANDERSEN TELLS HOW

A paper read by Ulllan Anderson

him from the beginning the desire an J

The pupil at this stage of mental
development, exercle their tnemorle

to do so, will commit their reading

become longer, developes Into merely
word naming and also cultivates the

unnatural voice. This once acquired,
Is one of our difficult problems to con
Then also In memorizing spreading
lesson, the pupil, by exercising the
one faculty, memory, weakens hi per
ceptive faculties and so Is at loss
when he trie to do thing by himself.
We should, therefore, give the pupil
motive and cultivate In him the love
of reading by giving him the proper
tool with which to begin, tor as nor

hut thev have one next door." I listen
I to each one and appear very Interest-

; picture. Here they answer, "baby
I and mamma." Then, "what Is mamma
j doing to babyT" To this I receive
. many different anskers, but some one
1 will say. "mamma love baby," and I
i say, "Yes. mamma loves oauy. m

i to say "mamma loves baby," and J
write the same slowly ana plainly on

It. Then I ask, "what does baby do
to mamma?" Some one "baby love
mamma," and I again write that on the
board In the same manner:
When I have finished this, 1 take a
pointer and point to baby, mamma,
loves, just aa the children say the
words. I repeat this several times,
then point to the different word and
ask the class to name them.
I then take an eraser and erase each
word, what It was. Then taken the
chalk again and begin to write slowly,
"Ba f some one will say "Baby." then
mamm and someone will say "mam
ma." and In the aame way lo for
When they recognize the words in
script I have them find them In prim
by saying mamma, la the long word,

for all the class, aa most of the class
can. by this time, recognize the print

Just the words In It that the class
know both in scnpi ana m iium.
For the first week or two. I have a
burning house drawn on the board
with crossea (x) In It for people. 1
then draw a ladder up one side of It,
hkvinv a word on each round. My
class then Imaglnea themselvea fire
men and see If they can rescue somo
one by going up the ladder, saying
the word on each round aa they go up,
then bringing them down safely by
saying each word as they come down.
v If they fall going up they are poor
firemen, and If they fall coming down
they drop their burdena to the ground
and Injure them. Thla adds interest
to the lesson as each one trie to be
a good fireman.
I also begin making type aentences
now from my word chart, as "1 can
aee mamma loves baby." In making
these sentences I change only one
word at a time.
1 continue In this way teaching the
first fifty words by the word method.
I use this method as it puta the pupil
In the book at once and gives him
power to begin work.
My alignment conalat in teaching
the new word of the next lesson. I
do thla by placing th new worda In a
sentence among tbe old word and
have the children pick (hem out I
tell the children what they are then
have. the claaa find them in print aa
many timea at they are on tbe page,
both those beginning with capital and
those with small letters.
. When our recitation period cornea
I use the "look and y" method. By
thla I have the clas open their book
and cover all but the first lino with
allp of paper.1 I then aay, "atudy and
when you know it. look up." Each
child studies and when they know It
they look np I call on someone and ho
says looking at me, "I can see kitty,"
or whatever the sentence may be. I
say "right" or "wrong," aa the case
msr-be, and give the signal to move
to th next line, and continue In this
way until we have finished the lesson. J
I use the "look and aay" method In
recitation throughout th first year.
We have reading two or three time a
day and review each day. At the end
of two week I have them go back
and a'-e how many page they can read
In fifteen minute. I
During the time I ara teaching the
first fifty words by the word method
am als- teaching the class, the let-,
ter and their sounds, the short sounJs
of the vowels. I do this by having a
picture of a known article on the board
beginning with tbo new' sound, have
the letter written In script, capital
and email by the side of It, and the
name of it written below It, for exam
ple an apple to represent the short
sound of a, an egg for e. Ink for I, an
orange for o, and an umbrella for u.
Each morning I put the article be
ginning with a new sound on the
board and a soon as the children are
seated I can aee tbelr mouths forming
the new sound saying aa alowly mm
possible the word beginning with It,
then a band goes up and someone has
mastered It. . '
When they have mastered the vow
el and aeven or eight consonants, I
begin my class In phonics.
The first two week I sound the
words and have the class tell me
what they are, after this they sound
and blend the word-list, J have pre
pared each morning before class time.
In these lists I have such words as
man, back, lash, plant, etc., word
with the short vowel In.
When they can sound all abort-vowel
words, I take a word like "bat" and
put on the board, add e, and then tell
them a story about the final "e." say
ing, "when you ask the a In bat its
name It is afraid and so It say a, but
when the little fairy rowel e cornea
and stands near It, It Isn't afraid any
more, and It says Its name a, aa a In
I tell them the aame story about
two vowels coming together, the first
one says Its - name and the aeitond
keep quiet, as oa In boat, o says its
name and a keeps quiet; I also have
them make as many words aa they
can from at as cat, that, rat, calling
It the "at" family; cold, sold, told,
from the "old" family; slant, plant,
chant from the "ant" family, etc.
Soon they become very efficient In
sounding and can, at the end of the
first year, sound words of the length
of dictionary, butterfly and duttful.
With the exceptions of phonograms
such as ch, saying ch the same aa the
Bteam-engine, sh-th-to be quiet, the on
ly rule I teach are that x haa tne
same sound as ks, and c the aame u
Words that cannot be ounded I
teach by the word method, all other
by phonics. ,
In sounding I allow no concert work
as there are always some slow pupils
who would back-slide; these I soon
discover ahd"glveMdlvldual help.
The second year I begin by finding
out their weaknesses. These may be
In pronouncing words, In the expres
sion, or in the meaning of words.
nhrases and sentences.
When I have found wnerein ineir
weakness lies, I begin by taking the
greatest 'one and stay with It until
they have overcome It, then the oth
era and so on.
I assign very short lessons but each
child must be able to read It accurate
ly, distinctly and with expression be
fore Tve leave It.
In recitation, throughout the second
year, they look on their booka and
read, but In the third, they read and
look off the book as much ac possible.

FIFTEEN CENT RATE
WILL BE ACCEPTABLE
STORIES TOLD OF HOW O. W. P.
MADE MONEY AT THAT PRICE
The recent hearing In thla city of
the question of rate of far between
here and Portland ha set the tongue
of reminiscence to work and one can
hear the whole history 'of electric rail
way travel as it bear on the history
of Oregon City discussed at length.
The contontlon made la that the
railway can give n a rate of fifteen
centa one way and twenty-five centa
round trip. Aa evidence that thla la
a fact those bringing the matter to the
front tell the atory of when the line
waa owned and operated by tbe O.
W. P. a an independent company, and
bow such a rate prevailed.
Aa tbe story goes tbe company used
to operate at that rate on Saturday
afternoon and Sunday. It Is said that
the company ran four car In a train
and that they were filled to overflow
ing and that they made money. It
la predicted that If the company would
make such a rate today the net re
ceipts would be more than now and
the community be satisfied and will
ing to grant almost any favors asked.
Certain it la that such a reduction
would meet with the approval of those
who ride the car to Portland often.
