Activity 2

To do creative writing with words that imitate their sound and begin with the same sound [lo 4.3.1]

WRITING POETRY

1. Write a short poem about your favourite musician or group.

Try to use words that imitate the sound of the object you are writing about (e.g. the crashing cymbals; the whining guitar). This is called onomatopoeia . (What a word!) Look at the poem about the gypsies again and try to find some “sound-imitating” words. Also try to use alliteration (words next to or close to each other start with the same sound, e.g. Tiny Tim). Your educator will guide you.

Assessment

Learning outcome 4: writing

The learner will be able to write different kinds of factual and imaginative texts for a wide range of purposes.

Assessment standard

We know this when the learner:

  • writes for social purposes:

4.2.1 writes a simple note or message;

4.3 writes creatively:

4.3.1 uses some techniques for creative writing: repeating the same structure to create a poetic rhythm and pattern;

4.5 uses developing knowledge of language structure:

4.5.3 begins to use a wider range of punctuation (e.g. apostrophes).

Learning outcome 5: thinking and reasoning

The learner will able to use language to think and reason, and access, process and use information for learning.

Assessment standard

We know this when the learner:

5.1 uses language across the curriculum:

5.1.3 understands and produces texts used in other Learning Areas (e.g. a timeline).

Memorandum

Activity 1

Address xxxxxxxDateXxxxxxDear…Introduction.Body of note/letter.Conclusion.Kind regards / Yours SincerelyNameTeach the basic structure of a letter.

Activity 2

Discuss aspects of poetry such as metre, rhyme, poetic devices such as alliteration, assonance, simile, metaphor, etc.

Punctuation: Why is it necessary? Makes meaning clear, enhances mood/register, etc. Show how different ways of punctuating a sentence can change its meaning.

Activity 3

Teach the rules for contracting words.

  • e.g. did not = didn’t (the ‘ replaces the missing letters)
  • e.g. Peter’s ball… (the ‘ shows that the subject is not a plural, but is showing ownership.

Activity 4

Time line: link up with other learning area (History) – explain what a time line is, if necessary.
