The lion and the mouse

Activity 1

To know the meaning of words such as author, characters, theme and storyline [lo1.2]

EDUCATOR: Choose a well-loved story that is known to your class and read it to them. This may be from a previous class reader or a popular library book. There needs to be more than two main characters and a straightforward storyline.

The dramatic reading of this story should be between three and four minutes long. Use this as a demonstration of how to create atmosphere and captivate an audience with your voice.

LEARNERS: You will probably have heard or read this story before. Now you need to listen very well while you enjoy hearing it again. You will be expected to answer some questions immediately after having listened to your teacher reading the story to you.

Just to be sure that you are not caught napping, let’s check your vocabulary. Do you know what is meant by each of the following? Decide with the help of your group.

  • Author
  • Main characters
  • Theme
  • Storyline

Don’t waste any time! Grab your pencil and complete the table on the following page while the information is still fresh in your memory. Be neat and precise.
