Grade 2

MY ROLE IN MY FAMILY

Module 1

MY FAMILY

  • My interview with .
  • Draw or find a picture of Granny/ Grandpa.

Draw an old item from Granny’s time.

  • Draw a picture of what this item would look like today.
  • Can you spot all the differences?

Recognizing my feelings

Sometimes we are given responsibilities. How do you feel about some of the things that you are expected to do? Knowing how you feel about them can help you decide how to behave.

  • Read the different situations below and decide how you feel about each one.
  • Put a cross in the box that best describes your feelings.

Recognizing my feelings

Class discussion

Discuss what one can do in response to the negative feelings, e.g. being miserable because of not making the bed. The class must find a solution, e.g. Mom must teach him to make a bed.

Family role-play

Group work: Your teacher will divide you into groups with a father, mother, brother and sister.

1. What is the problem that your family has to face?

  1. What is the role you are going to play?

3. Imagine how you would feel about the problem. Choose a word that best describes the way you feel.

When you think what you want to say, remember this:

  • If you are pleased with your work, give yourself a 4.
  • If you think you can do better, give yourself a 2.
  • If you think you should do much better, give yourself a 1.
  • Now think how you worked with your group and give yourself a mark.

Families provide a safe environment for us to explore the world and our relationships with the people around us.

  • Remembering things that have happened in your family, what will you do in the following situations?
  • Write down what you would say.

1. Your teacher says you must share your crayons.

2. Mom is late fetching you.

3. Your friend is unkind to you.

4. You can’t swim but don’t anyone to know.

5. You see someone bullying your friends.

6. You are not chosen to be in the team with your friends.

Make a special card for someone in your family. Decorate it and write a kind message in it.

Do it as follows:

  • fold an A-4 page in half;
  • decorate the front with feathers, beads or seeds (try finding something from your environment);
  • write a message in the card.

Before you make your card, first draw it in the frames below and write your message.

  • My card is going to look like this:
  • Have you perhaps made someone in your family happy today? ___________

TECHNOLOGYLO 1
TECHNOLOGICAL PROCESSES AND SKILLS The learner will be able to apply technological processes and skills ethically and responsibly using appropriate information and communication technologies.
We know this when the learner:
1.3 ( designs ) – chooses suitable materials or substances to make products, and suggests some ways they can be used to satisfy a problem, need or opportunity.

Memorandum

Let the children compare answers. Compare individual and cultural differences. Help them to see differences and similarities in households of similar and very different cultures.

Divide the class into “family groups” and give each group a problem, or two groups can even have the same problem. Let them role-play a family addressing the problem. Each child should each say about three sentences. They should remember how people felt about the jobs they had to do. They must state the problem, suggest solutions and choose the best one, (remembering to consider everyone’s feelings) and saying why it is the best.

Helpful hint : The groups may become noisy in preparing their little play. To help control the groups, give each family member a role, e.g. Mother must keep the group quiet, Father must make sure everyone has a turn to speak, Sister must write down the script and Brother must control the “button”. Give each group a button or token. (Each member of the group may only speak when they are holding the button. Brother must give the speaker the button before the speaker can make his contribution to the discussion).

The groups perform their plays. Discuss and compare solutions. Are they really solutions? Has someone else now got extra work to do? Maybe Kate was actually afraid of the dog? Making her brother feed the dog won’t help her face her fears and her brother may just be resentful that he has to do her job. Repeat the activity, but give the groups different problems to solve.
