Assessment

LO 3

READING AND VIEWING The learner will be able to read and view for information and enjoyment, and to respond critically to the aesthetic, cultural and emotional values in texts.

We know this when the learner:

3.1 understands in a simple way some element of stories:

3.1.4 notices the role that visual images (pictures, photographs) play in the construction of meaning (e.g. how old and young people are represented in pictures);

3.2 understands, in a simple way, some elements of poetry:

3.2.1 rhyme;

3.2.2 words which begin with the same sound;

3.6 reads for pleasure:

3.6.1 reads fiction and non-fiction at an appropriate reading and language level;

3.6.4 solves word puzzles;

3.7 uses reference books and develops vocabulary:

3.7.1 uses a dictionary;

3.7.2 demonstrates a reading vocabulary of between 2 000 and 3 500 common words.

LO 5

THINKING AND REASONING The learner will able to use language to think and reason, and access, process and use information for learning.

We know this when the learner:

5.2 uses language for thinking:

5.2.4 classifies things according to criteria;

5.2.5 identifies similarities and differences between things;

5.2.6 distinguishes parts from the whole;

5.2.8 expresses opinions and gives reasons for them.

LO 6

LANGUAGE STRUCTURE AND USE The learner will know and be able to use the sounds, words and grammar of the language to create and interpret texts.

We know this when the learner:

6.4 develops own vocabulary:

6.4.1 analyses word formation (e.g. drum, drummer);

6.4.3 understands between 3 000 and 4 500 common spoken words in context by the end of grade 5.

Memorandum

FULL OF FUN

  • STEP-BY-STEP THROUGH THE ACTIVITIES AND MEMORANDUM

ACTIVITY 1

Explain that the words could read horizontally, vertically and diagonally, in all directions.

Motivate the learners by offering them 3 prizes: the learner with the most words after 10 min, after 20 min and after 30 min. Keep the prizes simple.

Approximately 132 words are hidden. Encourage the learners to find as many as they can.

ACTIVITY 1 (Extended)

TO USE A DICTIONARY AND DEVELOP VOCABULARY [LO 3.7.1]

TO USE LANGUAGE FOR THINKING BY IDENTIFYING SIMILARITIES AND DIFFERENCES; DISTINGUISHING PARTS FROM THE WHOLE [LO 5.2.5]

TO ANALYSE WORD FORMATION [ LO 5.2.6; 6.4.1]

Play with words : Extend this activity by doing the following : Separate the class into groups of 3 or 4. Give each group a piece of chalk, a koki or a crayon and a sheet of newsprint.

Give each group the task of studying the words and categorizing them according to

  • Same word endings – specify which or allow them to ‘discover’:
  • Action words (verbs)
  • Item words (nouns)
  • Subjects
  • Compound words, eg. Fireman (fire + man)
  • Words containing ‘oo’; ‘ou’; ‘ee’; ‘ea’; … etc
  • Words containing long/short vowels
  • Words containing consonant blends

Allow time for feedback to the class. Display the newsprint in class or even in the corridor.
