Grade 4

Children like me

Module 15

Some festive days

Time to go to the library - this may be in your school building, in a public building or on your computer. You need to go searching!

Activity 1

To do research [lo 3.12]

Let us take a look at how children all around the world celebrate special events in their lives. Try to find out how the day originated and what people do to celebrate that special day. Make notes about what you find.

1. MOTHER’S DAY

2. EID UL-FITR

3. HALLOWE’EN

4. HANUKKAH

5. DIWALI

6. CHRISTMAS

(A book that will be of huge help to you with this exercise is “Children Just Like Me CELEBRATION!” by Barnabas and Anabel Kindersley)

FOR THE EDUCATOR: You might like to make this a group project. Maybe you have children of different religions in your class who would be able to give first hand information on these topics. Or you could invite guest speakers. Make this as much fun as possible with the opportunity to SHOW AND TELL and to DRESS UP and to EAT and to MAKE decorations and cards or invitations for each occasion. You could do the research this term and do the traditional celebration in the term in which it occurs.

Activity 2

To read and relate the text to own experience [lo 1.2]

Listen to the following poem about MOTHER’S DAY and then answer the questions by highlighting the best answer supplied below.

  • Here is the poem about Mother’s Day for you to read and enjoy.

ON MOTHER’S DAY

On Mother’s Day we got up first,

so full of plans we almost burst.

We started breakfast right away

as our surprise for Mother’s Day.

We picked some flowers, then hurried back

to make the coffee - rather black.

We wrapped our gifts and wrote a card

and boiled the eggs - a little hard.

And then we sang a serenade,

which burned the toast, I am afraid.

But Mother said, amidst our cheers,

“Oh, what a big surprise, my dears.

I’ve not had such a treat in years.”

And she was smiling to her ears!
