Activity 2

To do creative writing with words that imitate their sound and begin with the same sound [lo 4.3.1]

WRITING POETRY

1. Write a short poem about your favourite musician or group.

Try to use words that imitate the sound of the object you are writing about (e.g. the crashing cymbals; the whining guitar). This is called onomatopoeia . (What a word!) Look at the poem about the gypsies again and try to find some “sound-imitating” words. Also try to use alliteration (words next to or close to each other start with the same sound, e.g. Tiny Tim). Your educator will guide you.

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:

  • writes for social purposes:

4.2.1 writes a simple note or message;

4.3 writes creatively:

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

4.5 uses developing knowledge of language structure:

4.5.3 begins to use a wider range of punctuation (e.g. apostrophes).

Learning outcome 5: thinking and reasoning

The learner will able to use language to think and reason, and access, process and use information for learning.

Assessment standard

We know this when the learner:

5.1 uses language across the curriculum:

5.1.3 understands and produces texts used in other Learning Areas (e.g. a timeline).

Memorandum

Activity 1

Address xxxxxxxDateXxxxxxDear…Introduction.Body of note/letter.Conclusion.Kind regards / Yours SincerelyNameTeach the basic structure of a letter.

Activity 2

Discuss aspects of poetry such as metre, rhyme, poetic devices such as alliteration, assonance, simile, metaphor, etc.

Punctuation: Why is it necessary? Makes meaning clear, enhances mood/register, etc. Show how different ways of punctuating a sentence can change its meaning.

Activity 3

Teach the rules for contracting words.

  • e.g. did not = didn’t (the ‘ replaces the missing letters)
  • e.g. Peter’s ball… (the ‘ shows that the subject is not a plural, but is showing ownership.

Activity 4

Time line: link up with other learning area (History) – explain what a time line is, if necessary.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
