Let a third person read here and explain fully:

There is one extra way of doing this. Place one learner at the front of the room. S(he) has a list of titles. One member from each team goes up to her/him and is given a title. This member then returns to the group and either acts out or draws the title for the group. There may be no speaking by the member whose turn it is.

If the group successfully guesses the title, then the next member goes up to fetch the next title.

Obviously the answer must not be shouted out because the other team will hear!

The team that correctly identifies all the titles first is the winner.

Enjoy the activity, but make sure that you learn about communication at the same time!

  • Look at the following checklist to guide you:
Clarity of gestures
Correct break-down of the words
Correct animation
Cleverness of clues
Success rate

Activity 4:

To be able to read text for purpose, audience, context

[lo 3.1.1]

The educator will select the readers for this activity.

  • As you are reading to the class, you need to read clearly.

The passage will be read TWICE:

  • Your first reading just gives the class the idea of what the passage is about (the theme); something about the characters; where and when the story takes place, and something about the style of the writer.
  • The SECOND reading will help the class to pick up details or missed facts.

TIP : It is sometimes useful in a comprehension activity to read just the first sentence of all the paragraphs and to look at the source of the writing as these give important clues.

If you want to skim-read, then pick out the main nouns and verbs ONLY as you read.

Somehow your brain makes the connections.

It is amazing how much you can learn in such a short time.


Excitement was in the air! It was that time of year again…school concert time!

The hall was alive with the voices of energised children discussing what they would be doing in the concert. Groups were forming, and those already established were frantically practising.

This year’s concert was different from others before…this year a local business was sponsoring the best group and the prize was: A musical trip to Botswana, Namibia and Scotland!

The Pally Band [PB] was a group made up of six friends: Chrystal, on percussions; Dawid, on keyboard (he could also make music with bottles); Vusi, who played the saxophone and violin; Nizaam, the lead singer (and harmonica player); Charlie (a girl), the guitarist, and lastly, Jaco, who played the marimbas and did gumboot-dancing as well.

This versatile group could play anything from bluesy jazz music to rock; from traditional African music to classic Bach and Vivaldi. The six of them practised diligently every afternoon, and every weekend. Charlie’s dad, Uncle Henry, let them use his garage - he was very supportive of his daughter’s band and of her friends.

To repay him, they wanted to win the competition.

With the exception of Dawid, all the band members had their own instruments, which they permanently set up in the garage. The headmistress kindly loaned her son’s keyboard to Dawid for the duration of the practice sessions.
