English first additional language

English with the three little pigs

Educator section

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.

“The home” is the topic introduced with the story of the three little pigs.

The sequential pictures will help the learners to retell the story in the correct order once they have listened to the story several times.

Vocabulary about the house is introduced as well as the family living in the house. Learners are exposed to “reading” and “writing” with activities relating to number, shape, direction and ordering.

The lists of words introduced in this module serve to consolidate the speaking vocabulary rather than to facilitate their reading ability. Many learners will however pick up “reading” incidentally.

Integration of themes

  • Social Justice

In the context of the home all learners should be able to live in a respectable home with electricity and running water available.

  • Human rights

All learners should be made aware of abuse even in the context of home and family life. It is primarily the parents responsibility to feed and clothe the learners to the best of their ability.

  • A healthy environment

The rights of people to homes, food and clothes are subject to keeping the environment they live in, healthy and safe.

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.
