Activity 2

To repeat the same structure to create a poetic rhythm [lo 4.3.1]

SONG TO SING

This song can be sung to the tune of "Are you sleeping...?" (Frère Jacques). If you do not know the tune you will be able to clap out the rhythm by counting the syllables in the song.

A. Work in your groups and count the syllables in each line. If a word is made up of more than one syllable, break it up like this: e.g. hos/ pi/ tal.

This is my house (2x)

I am proud (2x)

You are very welcome (2x)

Please come inside (2x)

B. As a group, you are going to make up a second verse. Check that each line has the correct number of syllables. Once your song is complete your educator will allow you an opportunity to present it to the class. You may sing it or present it as a rap.

Assessment

Learning outcome 4: writing

The learner will be able to write different kinds of factual and imaginative texts for a wide range of purposes.

Assessment standard

We know this when the learner:

4.3 writes creatively:

4.3.1 uses some techniques for creative writing: repeating the same structure to create a poetic rhythm and pattern.

Learning outcome 6: language structure and use

The learner will know and be able to use the sounds, words and grammar of the language and interpret texts.

Assessment standard

We know this when the learner:

6.6 develops own vocabulary:

6.6.4 understands between 2 000 and 3 500 common spoken words in context by the end of grade 4.

Memorandum

Activity 1

ROOMS IN THE HOUSE

The learner is afforded the opportunity to learn vocabulary - the names of the rooms in the house in a fun and “hands on” way – cutting and pasting.

Discuss the criteria in the “Rooms in our House” checklist prior to learners beginning this activity.

Check the learners’ understanding of the new vocabulary by letting them complete the sentences.

Answers: garage; kitchen; lounge; bedroom; dining room; bathroom; study; cellar; playroom; garden; shed; spare room

Activity 2

SONG TO SING

Revise the concept of syllables by letting each learner say their first and last name in “syllable rhythm” E.g. Ma-ry-Mc-Do-nald = 5 syllables They love this!

Show them how to clap out a rhythm by clapping out a simple song that is familiar to them. e.g. Ma-ry-had-a-li-ttle-lamb…

Now that you have empowered them with knowledge about syllables, they can work in their groups.
