Memorandum

Introduction

The topics chosen for the modules in Grade 1 are all related to stories which reflect the learners’ experience in the world in which they are growing up. They are relevant to both boys and girls.

Much depends on the number of times the learners hear the stories and rhymes and the provision made for the repetition of the vocabulary introduced. At first this is done classically. As the learners become more familiar with English they can communicate with a friend. Eventually they will want to tell the teacher and answer questions about the texts.

The educators must keep in mind that there may be many/some learners in the class who are still only at the listening stage, but with the necessary encouragement and praise they will soon join in and begin speaking in English.

Time scheduled for the modules 1 to 8

It is suggested that the average learners complete all eight modules during the year, finishing ± two modules per term.

Allow the slower learners to proceed at their own pace when doing the written activities but expose them to all the listening and speaking activities with the class.

The quick learners can be extended and given more tasks and activities to complete.

Tim and Tina are off on a shopping spree on a rainy day in winter. They visit many different kinds of shops. Learners colour articles which boys/girls would like to buy. They answer yes or no to questions and complete a graph about the traffic.

Integration of themes

  • Social Justice

This module lends itself to the discussion of such issues as job opportunities for all including disabled persons; the acquiring of wealth; the results of unemployment.

A day out shopping

What fun we had

out shopping this day!

We spent all Dad’s money

but he said, “It’s Okay!”

We piled all our parcels

up high in the car

and off we went home

which was ever so far!

Down to the river

and under the bridge,

through the long tunnel

and over the ridge.

At last we were home

and tucked into bed.

“Thanks, Mom! For this day,

Thanks, Dad!” we all said.
