Percy the porcupine

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.

The topic “Story time” continues with that of “Percy the porcupine” who tries to find a friend and cannot understand why the farm animals will not be his friends.

This module is integrated with the learning area, Mathematics and explores the possibility of shapes in the story.

Polite forms of greeting are repeatedly used.

Activities to learn the vocabulary of animals and their babies, and noises of animals have been designed.

Integration of themes

  • A healthy environment

Farm animals are important to Man and should be cared for.

  • Social Justice

The feelings of others are important and learners must learn to be sensitive to them.
