English first additional language

Stripes and stars

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.

Learners distinguish between sh and ch sounds and spell common words correctly. The sounds “ oo ”, “ th ”, “ ea ”, “ all ”, “ y ” and “ ay ” are also introduced. They are given an opportunity to write sentences/ a story without the help of a frame and to look up the meaning of words in a dictionary.

Learners discuss the issue of the monkeys making fun of Baby Zebra who was born without stripes.

Integration of themes

  • Social Justice

Everyone is unique and their differences should be respected and not made fun of.

  • Human rights

Everyone has rights – even the handicapped.

Leaner section

Stripes and stars – part 2

The lions and their cubs

drank water at the banks of the flowing river.

They rested in the shade of the many trees in the forest.

They worried no one and no one worried them.

The elephants lifted their trunks and

ate the sweet green twigs on the trees.

They bathed in the cool waters of the flowing river.

They walked slowly, ever so slowly through the forest.

The tall, spotted giraffes stretched their

long, thin necks above the highest

branches of the trees in the forest.

Their eyes saw the flowing waters of the river.

They saw the lions and their cubs drinking

water on the banks of the river.

They saw the elephants bathing in the

cool waters of the flowing river.
