Story time

Module 3

Wolf wolf

Which way should Little Riding Hood go?

Many well-known traditional stories were first told to teach children a special lesson. Your educator will tell you the story of Red Riding Hood. Try to see what the lesson in this story is, then do the following worksheet by cutting out the pictures and pasting them in the appropriate blocks on the next page. Your educator will help you.

Little red riding hood wants to take her granny a healthy sandwich.

Let’s make a sandwich!

We are now going to make a very interesting sandwich, using healthy food. Can you lay out a face with some of the items in the picture? What are you going to need? Circle all the items you are going to use. (Add more pictures if necessary).

That is what my sandwich looks like!


Learning Outcomes(LO’s)
HEALTH PROMOTION The learner will be able to make informed decisions regarding personal, community and environmental health.
We know this when the learner:
1.4 identifies dangers and appropriate precautions on the route to school.
LO 2
SOCIAL DEVELOPMENT The learner will be able to demonstrate an understanding of and commitment to constitutional rights and responsibilities, and to show an understanding of diverse cultures and religions.
We know this when the learner:
2.4 sequences pictures of stories with a moral value from a range of South African cultures, including own culture.
HISTORICAL INTERPRETATION The learner will be able to interpret aspects of history.
We know this when the learner:
3.1 responds to stories about the past (e.g. listens to stories about the past and makes comments).
CREATING, INTERPRETING AND PRESENTING The learner will be able to create, interpret and present work in each of the art forms.
We know this when the learner:
1.4 ( Drama ) – responds through drama to stimuli in games and stories, including making up endings to stories presented by the teacher;
TECHNOLOGICAL PROCESSES AND SKILLS The learner will be able to apply technological processes and skills ethically and responsibly using appropriate information and communication technologies.
We know this when the learner:
1.2 ( Designs ) – chooses suitable material or substances to make simple products to satisfy a given need;1.4 ( Evaluates ) – expresses and explains own feelings about the product made.


This module will introduce stories to the learners. While doing this module, the learners should be encouraged to bring as many stories to school as possible. The educator should try and read many of these to the class. The rest should be displayed for the children to “read” and page through.

It will show which learners are not exposed to many stories at home, and might thus not be so positive towards books and stories.

The stories should not always be read, but should sometimes be told to the class as well. It can be a very good idea to have a special piece of clothing that marks story time, e.g. a story hat or story cloak, that the educator can put on to show when it is story time.

Tell the learners the story of Red Riding Hood. Then ask the following questions:

  • What did Red Riding Hood do wrong?

(She did not listen to her mother; she did not follow the known path but went to a strange place alone; she listened to a stranger.)

  • Why must you not go to strange places on your own?
  • What must you do when a stranger asks you to come to his/her car, or offers you sweets?
  • What must you do when your friend asks you to go with him/her to a strange place without your parent’s permission?

After the discussion, help the learners with the worksheet that follows. Discuss the pictures and tell the learners to cut them out and paste them in either the “no” block (things that are not safe to do) or the “yes” block (things that are safe to do.) Then colour the pictures in.

Wolf, wolf what’s the time?

One child is chosen to be the wolf, and the others line up behind him. They now walk through the school grounds. The children ask “Wolf, Wolf, what’s the time”, and he responds with a time (e.g. 3 o’clock, 5 o’clock, etc.). As soon as he replies “Dinner time!”, the children should run away and he should try to catch them. Then the next child is chosen.

Sit your class down in a big circle. In the case of a very big class, this activity can be done twice in smaller groups. The educator starts a story with a sentence (e.g. “Once upon a time, there was a big frog. He lived alone in a very big pond”.) The educator then throws a ball to one of the learners. This learner must then continue with the story. The educator can write the story down on newsprint, and ask different groups to do different illustrations. Keep the book in the classroom for the learners to read through.

Give each learner a big sheet of paper and show them how to fold it so that it has six equal parts when unfolded. Let them draw their own comic strip.

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
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?
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.

is Bucky paper clear?
carbon nanotubes has various application in fuel cells membrane, current research on cancer drug,and in electronics MEMS and NEMS etc
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.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
how to fabricate graphene ink ?
for screen printed electrodes ?
