How do you do?

Module 5

Simon says ...

Activity 1

To play a game involving language [lo 2.4.4]

SIMON SAYS

Here is a game for you to play in groups of four or five. When the leader in your group says, “Simon says …” you must do the action. When the leader gives an instruction without saying, “Simon says…” you must ignore the instruction and remain absolutely still. If you move you will be out. The last person “out” is the winner and becomes the new leader.

Example:

Simon says touch your cheeks.

Simon says wink your eyes. bend your knees.

Simon says wave your hands. point your toes. stick out your tongue.

Simon says bend your spine.

Simon says pull up your shoulders.

Simon says touch your ankles.

Activity 3

To write a paragraph with support of a structure [4.5.1]

POETRY

A Give each one in your group a chance to read the poem. Underline in red the parts of the poem that are positive about a baby, and the parts that are negative about a baby, in blue.

Some Thing Don’t Make Any Sense at All

Yabba dabba doo.

I love you

Tiny pink feet, oh so sweet.

A small little nose, and bootees on her toes.

She’s only a baby in a nappy,

But she makes me very unhappy.

She makes me cry,

Because I’m no longer mother’s special guy.

B In your groups talk about what it would be like if your mother arrived home with a new baby. Think about how life at home would change. Some changes would be positive while others would be negative. Make a list of the positive and the negative things about having a new baby in the family. The group leader will then report back to the rest of the class.

C Write down four positive and four negative ideas that your group thought of. Write them in full sentences.

Memorandum

Activity 1 Simon says …

Although it is difficult to assess group activities, the educator will quickly pick up on the learners who are not co-operating. This task does not have to be assessed or can be assessed as a whole group effort if “performed” in front of the class. You, the educator, can decide.

Activity 2 Word search

  • Although you will only be assessing LO 5.3, learners will also be busy with:
  • LO 3.5 To read for pleasure and information: read and solve puzzles
  • LO 6.5 To develop own vocabulary: Learn common spoken words

Activity 3 Poetry

  • Before beginning with writing, learners will have group discussions which will expose them to LO 1.5 To respect other learners: give them a chance to speak; listen to them; encourage their attempt to speak their additional language.
  • LO 2.1 To interact in additional language: take part in a short conversation on a familiar topic.

College algebra is really hard?
Shirleen Reply
Absolutely, for me. My problems with math started in First grade...involving a nun Sister Anastasia, bad vision, talking & getting expelled from Catholic school. When it comes to math I just can't focus and all I can hear is our family silverware banging and clanging on the pink Formica table.

can someone help me with some logarithmic and exponential equations.
Jeffrey Reply
sure. what is your question?
ninjadapaul
20/(×-6^2)
Salomon
okay, so you have 6 raised to the power of 2. what is that part of your answer
ninjadapaul
I don't understand what the A with approx sign and the boxed x mean
ninjadapaul
it think it's written 20/(X-6)^2 so it's 20 divided by X-6 squared
Salomon
I'm not sure why it wrote it the other way
Salomon
I got X =-6
Salomon
ok. so take the square root of both sides, now you have plus or minus the square root of 20= x-6
ninjadapaul
oops. ignore that.
ninjadapaul
so you not have an equal sign anywhere in the original equation?
ninjadapaul
hmm
Abhi
