There are riddles to read and games to play.

  • Writing: r, h, l, c, o, a.
  • Phonics: r, h, l, c, o, a.

INTEGRATION OF THEMES

  • SOCIAL JUSTICES

Learners can be made aware of different cultures/different people have different ways of celebrating e.g. birthdays. They must learn to accept these differences.

Educators Page

  • Group work

1. Learners bring old birthday cards to school to discuss and analyse.

- How are they made? How are they folded? Shape?

- What makes them attractive? Pictures? Colours?

- What does the card say?

- Why are there open spaces?

2. Learners will make a rough sketch to design their own cards. They can decide:

- What to draw.

- What message they will send.

- How they are going to write their messages. (They can ask the teacher to write them lightly and they can print over the letters or make any other plans they can think of)

- What they will need. (Make a list of drawings of tools needed.) They collect and bring these.

3. They make their cards.

4. They show it to the class. Positive comments are encouraged when learners consider their friends’ cards and maybe suggest improvements. Much praise is needed to encourage learners.

5. Display cards in the room.

The correct letter formation is taught after the sound has been introduced. Learners decorate their patterns.

  • Dictionary Pages

Words with two sounds are on one page. These words can be introduced when the second sound on the page has been taught. Keep these pages in flip-files. They will form their first dictionaries and learners can use the words for their own stories later.

  • Vocabulary Pages

These are used for revising and consolidating new words learnt. Keep in flip-files for stories later.

  • The teacher puts all these words on flash cards for revision games and quick recognition.

Willy has a birthday

This morning Willy woke up very early - so early that the birds were not awake yet. Only the wind was awake, rustling through leaves above their tree house. At first Willy could not remember why he was feeling so excited. Then suddenly he remembered. It was his birthday! Today he was eight years old. He thought about all the exciting things that were going to happen and quickly jumped out of bed.

Willy looked out the window to see what the weather was like. It was still quite dark, but he could see there were no clouds in the sky. Hooray! There would be no rain for his party.

Licky was asleep on the veranda, but he woke up immediately when he heard Willy. Willy picked Licky up and put him on his shoulder and together they watched the sunrise.

Mummy and Daddy came out and gave Willy a big hug and a kiss. “Happy Birthday, Willy,” they said. “We hope you enjoy your birthday.” Willy felt proud and important. It felt grand to be eight years old!

I suppose you are wondering when Willy is going to get his present? Well, the Wops never get presents for their birthdays. No, they do something different altogether. Every Wop child has a special tree. Their dads plant the trees when they are born and every year when they have their birthdays a mark is made on the tree trunk. There are seven marks on Willy’s tree and Dad is now going to make the eighth mark so that anyone who passes the tree will know that Willy is eight years old. Every year the Wops decorate their special tree and Sam and Terry will help Willy decorate his special tree with long ribbons of different colours. Willy loves his birthdays. He is very excited and he can’t wait for his forest friends to come to his party.

Mark and Don are planning to sell each of their marble collections at a garage sale. If Don has 1 more than 3 times the number of marbles Mark has, how many does each boy have to sell if the total number of marbles is 113?
mariel Reply
Mark = x,. Don = 3x + 1 x + 3x + 1 = 113 4x = 112, x = 28 Mark = 28, Don = 85, 28 + 85 = 113
