For the benefit of those teachers who prefer to teach the new words in spelling or language exercises before the reading lesson is reached, all new words are placed at the head of the lesson in which they first occur, excepting, first, those that are so simple in their orthography that no child would fail either to pronounce them correctly at sight, or to spell them correctly at once in dictation exercises ; and secondly, some geographical and other names which the children do not need to use early in their written exercises.

Some words that children have usually found difficult to spell are repeated at the head of subsequent lessons. The syllables are divided according to Webster.
