By: Khelsea Jenkinson The Hornbook The hornbook included a
hole, so that a piece of leather string could be put through it so the children could put the Hornbook around their neck or hook it to their belt. The information on a Hornbook was usually handwritten on a piece of parchment and tacked to the board.
The horn of oxen or sheep was used to make the laminating structure, so the books couldn't be soiled by the children. -The Hornbook was originated in England in 1450. The Hornbook was made of a wooden paddle with lessons tacked on and covered by a piece of transparent horn. The Hornbook usually consisted of several different topics including, the alphabet, vowel and consonant combinations, the Lord's Prayer, a form of a cross, and a praise of the Trinity. http://www.ux1.eiu.edu/~cfrnb/hornbook.html http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hornbook The New England Primer McGuffey Reader The New England Primer was reading primer
designed for the American Colonies. It became
the most successful educational textbook

The work usually contained religious maxims, woodcuts, alphabetical assistants, acronyms, catechisms, and moral lessons. The New England Primer was made with a thin sheet of horn or paper shellacked to a wooden board, which also sometimes contained a
