There are riddles to read and games to play.

  • Writing: r, h, l, c, o, a.
  • Phonics: r, h, l, c, o, a.



Learners can be made aware of different cultures/different people have different ways of celebrating e.g. birthdays. They must learn to accept these differences.

Educators Page

  • Group work

1. Learners bring old birthday cards to school to discuss and analyse.

- How are they made? How are they folded? Shape?

- What makes them attractive? Pictures? Colours?

- What does the card say?

- Why are there open spaces?

2. Learners will make a rough sketch to design their own cards. They can decide:

- What to draw.

- What message they will send.

- How they are going to write their messages. (They can ask the teacher to write them lightly and they can print over the letters or make any other plans they can think of)

- What they will need. (Make a list of drawings of tools needed.) They collect and bring these.

3. They make their cards.

4. They show it to the class. Positive comments are encouraged when learners consider their friends’ cards and maybe suggest improvements. Much praise is needed to encourage learners.

5. Display cards in the room.

LO/AS 1.3

  • Phonics

The following sounds are introduced in this learning unit. Follow the steps for each as set out in Learning Unit.

“r” as in rose

“h” as in house

“l” as in leg

“c” as in cat

“o” as in orange

“a” as in apple

  • Writing

The correct letter formation is taught after the sound has been introduced. Learners decorate their patterns.

  • Dictionary Pages

Words with two sounds are on one page. These words can be introduced when the second sound on the page has been taught. Keep these pages in flip-files. They will form their first dictionaries and learners can use the words for their own stories later.

  • Vocabulary Pages

These are used for revising and consolidating new words learnt. Keep in flip-files for stories later.

  • The teacher puts all these words on flash cards for revision games and quick recognition.

Learning Outcome 3: READING AND VIEWING : The learner is able to read and view for information and enjoyment and respond critically to the aesthetic, cultural and emotional values in texts.

Assessment Standard 3.1: We know this when the learner uses visual cues to make meaning;

3.13 interprets information including simple tables and graphical images found in print, media and advertising such as calendars and rosters, HIV/AIDS posters;

Assessment Standard 3.4: We know this when the learner recognises letters and words and makes meaning of written text:

  • reads simple written materials (labels, stories, ect.) for different purposes;

3.4.3 uses phonic and word recognition skills to decode new or unfamiliar words in context (e.g. visual cues like shape of word and letter patterns, picture clues context clues, and letter-sound relationships);

Assessment Standard 3.5: We know this when the learner develops phonic awareness:

3.5.10 recognises some high-frequency sight words such as ‘the’, ‘a’, ‘to’, ‘my’, your’, ‘like’ and including own name and print in the environment.

Assessment Standard 4.3: We know this when the learner writes for different purposes:

  • fills in missing words to complete a sentence.

Assessment Standard 4.6: We know this when the learner begins to build vocabulary and starts to spell words so that they can be read and understood by others:

4.6.4 builds own word bank and personal dictionary.

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
