Educator section

Memorandum

In Grade 3 learners continue to expand their vocabulary by listening and reading a variety of texts such as poem, stories, riddles and doing word puzzles.

These modules consolidate and revise the vocabulary and phonics introduced in Grade 2. More opportunities are given for written work producing longer texts of more varied kinds. Learners should not be afraid to make mistakes as the building of confidence and fluency should take priority above perfect written work.

Time scheduled for the modules

All learners should work through all eight modules as the phonics and spelling requirements are spread over these modules. The educator should however allow learners to complete them at their own pace namely ± two modules per term.

Zigi, the baby zebra grows up and becomes King Leo’s best friend. Together they teach the monkeys and the crocodiles a lesson. Phonics are extended with the learning of the sounds “ tch ”, “ ai ”, “ ay ”, “ e ” at the end of a word changes the sounds of the vowels. More sounds: “ ar ”, “ or , “ oa ”, “ oe ”, “ ie ”, “ er ”, “ ur ”, “ oy ” and “ oi ”.

Learners answer questions about a graph. They read a factual passage on “Animal Camouflage” and discuss what they have learnt.

Integration of themes

  • Social Justice

Patterns of behaviour are important and social skills should be developed and practised.

  • Human rights

By observing the behaviour of all the animals in the stories, learners become aware of the rights of the people around them.

  • A healthy environment

As the creatures of the forest need to live in harmony with one another, so must people learn correct behavioural patterns.
