Donalds’s diary

Educator section

Memorandum

For the educator:

The ICS modules for Grade 3 encourage learners to do extensive reading, both fiction and non-fiction. They are given frequent opportunities to write and develop their vocabulary and language use. These developing skills are supported by techniques and strategies to develop phonic awareness. Word recognition and comprehension skills are practised and phonics systematically introduced and consolidated.

The learning outcomes for Grade 3 are purposefully integrated to enable learners to write about texts which they have listened to, discussed and read.

The topics chosen for the modules are of interest to the Grade 3 learner, within their range of experience and other learning areas, namely, Life Orientation and Mathematics are well integrated.

Learners in Grade 3 use their communication skills more effectively and given the opportunity, these can overcome social, cultural and language boundaries. They become more sensitive to the needs of everyone around them.

All aspects of language learning as described in the learning outcomes and assessment standards for Grade 3 have been covered in these eight ICS modules. By reinforcing, consolidating and applying these supported by the Critical and Developmental Outcomes, the learners will be able to think and reason in their home language.

Time scheduled for the modules

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

Several positive attitudes are stressed in the poem and learners are given the opportunity to discuss these.

We read about the social dilemma Donald finds himself in. With problem solving techniques and strategies the learners help him to come to a decision.

Learners practise writing dialogues and their open diaries.

Learners begin to plan their stories, edit them and rewrite the final text.

Words are arranged alphabetically and riddles are read.

  • Writing: Learners practise cursive writing by copying short rhymes.
  • Phonics: Words with “ g ” as in gym , “ c ” as in city , and doubles such as “ bb ”, “ tt ”, “ ff ”, and “ dd ” are taught.

Integration of themes

  • Social Justice

Donald’s problems makes him realise his parents are there to help. Learners learn about such attitudes as loyalty, honesty and trust irrespective of who their friends are.

Donald shows them the correct social behaviour and positive attitudes which they must adopt.

Leaner section

Content

  • Read the poem “Donald’s Reflections”.
  • Discuss it in class, stressing Donald’s positive attitude.
  • What does the title mean?

Donald’s reflections

These things I must remember

And live out day by day

Be honest, cheerful, kind and true

Polite, hard working, too.

It isn’t always easy

When sisters are annoying,

To keep a friendly smile

And walk the second mile.

But, if I try my very best

I know I will succeed,

And make all those around me

A full account of the demand, or perhaps we can say, the state of demand for any goods in a given market at a given time should state what the volume (weekly) of sales would be at each of a series of prices. Such an account, taking the form of a tabular statement, is known as a demand schedule.
