Body parts are discussed and educators can assess the learners’ auditory perception, spatial orientation and sequencing skills.

Learners read and illustrate the sentences, poems and rhymes and are taught the writing patterns and the corresponding letters viz. v , w , n , and m .

These sounds are also taught.

Integration of themes

  • A Healthy environment

The Wops family live in the forest, have no amenities like electricity and spacious homes.

They live a life dependant on nature; fruit and berries, etc. They therefore look after their habitat. We should follow their example and care for our environment.

  • Social Justice

Although the Wops have no earthly riches they are warm, friendly and helpful. People do not have to be rich to gain our friendship. Be sensitive towards people who have different cultures and who lead different kinds of lives.

  • Human rights

Everyone has the right to have shelter and food. Children should be cared for by their parents.

Educator questions the learners.

  • It is important for them to memorise the way to Willy's house in correct sequence, as the next activity for them to do is to place the pictures in the right order.
  • The learners use their completed pages to re-tell the way to the Wops.
  • Phonics

Steps to be followed when teaching individual sounds W, V, M, N

1. Listen for the sound in a sentence, e.g. Willy Wop wades in the water with Wilbert and Wallace.

2. Identify which sound they heard the most frequently.

3. Show them what the sound looks like, e.g. “w” as in Willy.

4. Identify other "w" words.

5. Discriminate between "w' and other sounds by clapping when they hear the w sound, e.g. read a series of words like wool, wall, coat, water, and river.

6. Introduce all sounds in this way.

  • Certain pages contain more words to extend their vocabulary. These pages will form their first dictionary. When all the sounds have been learnt, the pages can be stapled together to make a book. New words can be written on the back. Their dictionaries can be referred to when they begin to write their own sentences and stories.

Games to play: -

  • Have objects beginning with the same sound hidden in a bag. Learners take turns to choose an object, say what it is and what does it begin with.
  • Play "I spy with my little eye".

why surface tension is zero at critical temperature
I think if critical temperature denote high temperature then a liquid stats boils that time the water stats to evaporate so some moles of h2o to up and due to high temp the bonding break they have low density so it can be a reason
