54. Review of Subtraction Facts. (ORAL WORK.) We must not forget subtraction while we are learning new things about addition. In Boxes (A) to (H) below is some good practice.

Subtract the black number in the center from each number around the outside. Start with the number that the arrow points to and go around to the right. Look at Box (A). The first example is 11-2. The next one is 5-2. In giving the answers, say only the differences, like this: 9, 3, 5. Keep on in this way going around the box until you come to 9-2.

55. Review of Adding by Endings. TICE.) Did you ever count by different numbers? Of course you can count by ones. Try counting by other numbers, also. The three pupils in the picture on the next page are playing the game of "Counting." They are counting by 2's now, beginning with 1. The first pupil says "1," then the next pupil says "3," and the third says "5"; then the first pupil says "7,"


and so on. The other pupils are watching for mistakes. If a mistake is made, the pupil in his seat who puts his hand up first takes the place of the pupil who made the mistake. Play the counting game below.


1. Count by 2's to 41, beginning with 1. 2. Count by 2's to 42, beginning with 2. 3. Count by 3's to 43, beginning with 1. 4. Count by 3's to 44, beginning with 2. 5.
