Just published, a New and Improved Edition of the
SCHOLAR'S ATTENDANCE CARD;
Ruled for a report of the number of days a child has been present each week, the time lost by absence, and the school-fees received during each month, and an annual summary. The last supplies the information required for the Government Capitation Grant. Each Card is ruled for a Year. It is strongly recommended by School-Managers and Teachers as securing the co-operation of the Parents, and promoting great regularity of attendance among the children. It may be introduced without expense to Managers or Teachers, and used in connexion with any register in either Boys or Girls' Schools.
"It is worked upon a very good principle; we recommend it to the notice of all Teachers."
ENGLISH JOURNAL OF EDUCATION.

"Collective Lessons on common things now form a recognised and very important branch of education." - REV. F. C. Cook, H. M. Inspector of Schools: Minutes of the Committee of Council on Education, 1856-57, page 239.
"Another matter for remark is the importance of pressing upon Masters, Mistresses, and Pupil Teachers, the necessity of giving Lessons upon particular subjects to their scholars, whether simultaneously, collectively, or in class. Subjects should be studied beforehand for the purpose of giving Lessons upon them. In this way popular instruction may be given upon various topics, increasing the information and intelligence of the children." REV. H. W. BELLAIRS, H. M. Inspector of Schools: Minutes, &c. 1850-51.

IN the following pages an attempt has been made to supply a want in educational literature, namely, a Manual containing "Notes of Information on Common and Rare Substances, Animals, &c, so arranged that Teachers may readily select from it materials for oral lessons suited to the capacities of the respective classes of their schools. The last few years have given to the profession several able works by practical men upon the method of collective teaching, notes of lessons, and kindred subjects, but none, it is believed, supplying a series of outlines similar to the following. It is therefore hoped that this effort may obtain as favourable a reception as that awarded the lessons marked * when published in 1852; these have been entirely re-written, and greatly extended.
The scope and power of object teaching is almost limitless. It has been well observed
