Educator section

Memorandum

The topics chosen for the modules in Grade 1 are all related to stories which reflect the learners’ experience in the world in which they are growing up. They are relevant to both boys and girls.

Much depends on the number of times the learners hear the stories and rhymes and the provision made for the repetition of the vocabulary introduced. At first this is done classically. As the learners become more familiar with English they can communicate with a friend. Eventually they will want to tell the teacher and answer questions about the texts.

The educators must keep in mind that there may be many/some learners in the class who are still only at the listening stage, but with the necessary encouragement and praise they will soon join in and begin speaking in English.

Time scheduled for the modules 1 to 8

It is suggested that the average learners complete all eight modules during the year, finishing ± two modules per term.

Allow the slower learners to proceed at their own pace when doing the written activities but expose them to all the listening and speaking activities with the class.

The quick learners can be extended and given more tasks and activities to complete.

This module contains much repetition of words relating to size and colour.

Let the learners copy the sentences to the best of their ability. Do not at this stage strive for perfection. It is more important for them to listen and repeat what is being written.

The poem “Time for tea” in three parts introduces the characters the worm, the frog and the mouse and lends itself to acting out the story with the correct forms of greeting. Learners will like to recite the poem on page 32 with the educator as it reflects the noises of the city.

Integration of themes

  • Human rights

Public transport should be in place to convey workers to and from work.

  • A healthy environment

Discuss air pollution (traffic).

The poems, which are included in this module, give learners the oppor-tunity to practise forms of greeting, e.g. good morning, good afternoon and good evening.

When learners have listened to the poems several times and they begin to say them with the educator, they can be divided into two groups, one group being the owl and the other the worm. When the learners know the words of all three poems, they can be divided into four groups, one group being the owl and the others the worm, the frog and the mouse.

Later individual learners can act out the poems saying the words themselves.

The words that were introduced in Modules 1 to 3 for Grade 1 are revised in this module. The educator is reminded that a listening period must precede the “reading” of the pages. The more practice the learners get in listening and pointing to the words while the educator reads the words, the sooner they will recognise individual words. Give learners the opportunity to enjoy the repetition of the phrases and the words.

New words introduced in this module are found on “My Dictionary Page”. The educator can write them on flash cards. Learners can then play games with these words.

Noises in town!

There’s a - hooting

and a - tooting

of cars that come and go!

Stop! Stop! Stop!

Go! Go! Go!

There’s a - hustling

and a - bustling

of people on the go!

Stop! Stop! Stop!

“I want to go home,” said the worm.

“I want to go home,” said the frog.

“I want to go home,” said the mouse.

“I don’t like the noise in the town,” said the worm.

“I don’t like the noise in the town,” said the frog.

“I don’t like the noise in the town,” said the mouse.

So the worm went home.

The frog went home.

The mouse went home.

They all went home.
