How do you see yourself?

What matters most is how you see yourself

Once upon a time a baby hawk fell into a chicken run. She believed she was a chicken and always ran about flapping her wings, even when she had grown into an adult. One day, an owl perched on the edge of the chicken run.

“Why don’t you fly away?” asked the owl.

“Don’t be silly. I can’t fly away. I’m a chicken!”

“No, you’re not. You’re a hawk. Look.”

And the owl swooped down and picked up the hawk and dropped her high in the sky. The hawk was terrified, but as she fell, she spread her wings and found herself flying beautifully.

And she never went back to being a chicken again.

Questions

1. Why did the hawk think she could not fly?

2. What does this story teach you?

3. Do you believe you can “fly”? Are you flying? If not, why?

The power of positive thinking

Listen to the short story The Season of the Stubby Caterpillar (in the Teacher’s Guide)and answer the quiz to be sure you get the full picture.

You will need to make notes after hearing the story once. You will then receive the questions. Read them. Listen to the story again and then follow the instructions to each of the questions.

The Season of the Stubby Caterpillar

  • Listen to the story of the Stubby Caterpillar and then make quick notes to keep your memory alive.
  • Now read the questions of the quiz.
  • Listen to the story again and then note and number the order in which the caterpillar met six different forest creatures.
  • Listen to the story again and pay special attention to all the colours mentioned, as you will need to make a detailed drawing. You may make notes while the story is being read.

1. Your teacher will supply you with a blank A4 page, which you need to divide into six equal sections on one side.

In each of the sections, make a detailed, coloured drawing of each of the forest creatures the stubby caterpillar encountered while searching for a place in a keurboom’s trunk.

Number the sections in the correct order in which the stubby caterpillar met each of the creatures.

Remember that every little detail will count and so too the correct colours.

LO 5.1.1 LO 5.3.3

2. Read the extract from the opening paragraph of The Season of the Stubby Caterpillar and then answer the questions that follow.

Deep in the shadows of the forest, deeper still than where the faintest shafts of moonlight ever reach, a moth lays her eggs in the leaf-mould, among the roots of a keurboom - a soft-barked tree with slipper-flowers, purple-veined and fragrant. This moth is yet another of the secrets of those great primeval forests. She is strange and beautiful though seldom seen - for the milky drifts of moonlight do not light the quiet caverns of the forest floor or catch the tremor of her tapered wings.

(a) Give a brief explanation, in your own words, for each of the following:You may make use of a dictionary, but remember to refer to the extract to ensure the correct explanation.
