Willy goes fishing

Educator section

Memorandum

For the educator:

This module, “Willy goes fishing”, gives learners the opportunity to discuss different kinds of sport. Learners discuss sporting activities in which they take part and collect photos, news items and posters that they bring to school.

The educator can tape a variety of comments of matches. Learners listen and identify which sport is being played. Learners therefore listen without seeing the speaker, to develop auditory perception. Tapes of stories should be a regular activity to listen to in the Foundation Phase classroom. (LO/AS 1.7,)

To correlate with the theme, the educator can design a “fishing game” to test the vocabulary learnt in previous modules. The words can be written on cards, a paper-clip attached to each card, a fishing rod made with an open paper-clip on the end and learners can take turns to “catch a fish” and read the word on the card.

In the previous module the “nd” and “mp” sounds at the end of words were introduced. In this module these words are revised and the “ck” sound is introduced.

Write these words on flash cards and teach them as sight words to the learners: sport; cricket; tennis; hockey; rugby; soccer; netball and fishing.

Integration of themes

The topic of this module revolves around sport. Learners realize all children should be able to take part in sport – Human rights. There should be amenities for everybody. Sports facilities provide a safe playing area for everybody, provide healthy recreational

Willy goes fishing

One day Willy took his fishing rod.

He went down to the river.

Licky went too.

Willy wanted to catch a fish.

Licky wanted to help Willy catch a fish.

  • Listen.

What do you think? Did Willy catch his fish? Listen carefully to the next part of the story.

Licky jumped up and down on Willy’s shoulder.

“You’ve got one! You’ve caught a fish, Willy!” shouted Licky. Licky was so excited that he fell off Willy’s shoulder.

“It’s a big one. I can feel it,” shouted Willy.

Willy just knew that it was going to be a struggle to bring this huge fish out.

Now any fisherman will tell you that sometimes it is hard work pulling out a fish, especially if it’s such a big one!

Willy pulled and pulled. Walter and Licky were just as excited and shouted and screamed at Willy. They too began to pull on the line. All three of them pulled and pulled with all their might.

Suddenly they were all lying on the grass. “Hey, where’s the fish?” asked Walter. Willy looked at his fishing rod. No fish!! Only a piece of a root on his hook.

Willy had thrown the line too far. It had caught onto a root of a plant. It wasn’t a fish that was on the hook at all – only a root! What a disappointment! But Walter wasn’t disappointed! He looked at the nice juicy root and smiled a big smile.

are you nano engineer ?
s.
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.

what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
Damian
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
