English first additional language

Sly old fox

Educator section

Memorandum

In Grade 3 learners continue to expand their vocabulary by listening and reading a variety of texts such as poem, stories, riddles and doing word puzzles.

These modules consolidate and revise the vocabulary and phonics introduced in Grade 2. More opportunities are given for written work producing longer texts of more varied kinds. Learners should not be afraid to make mistakes as the building of confidence and fluency should take priority above perfect written work.

Time scheduled for the modules

All learners should work through all eight modules as the phonics and spelling requirements are spread over these modules. The educator should however allow learners to complete them at their own pace namely ± two modules per term.

The story of “The Sly Old Fox” gives learners the opportunity to discuss such moral issues as honesty, truthfulness and faithfulness.

Learners write the dialogue between the characters.

A graph is kept for recording results of future spelling tests.

They read a factual article on crabs and make up their own story stimulated by a picture.

Integration of themes

  • Social Justice

We have a responsibility towards our friends. We need to be loyal, honest and helpful.
