Summer Time

EDUCATOR SECTION

Memorandum

For the Educator:

The adventures of the Wops family are closely related to the experience of every learner in Grade I, boys as well as girls. They may be exposed to a different environment if they live in towns and cities and through the stories become aware of what it is like to live in a forest without the ordinary amenities like running water and electricity.

Educators need to remember that many learners in Grade I will not have attended Grade R and consequently skills, strategies and concepts for Grade R will not have been learnt. The educator in Grade I must ensure that these are covered in the work that is done with these learners.

Listening and speaking should form a firm foundation on which to build literacy. The degree to which learners can speak their home language will vary according to circumstances, and educators should be aware of their levels of competence.

Language development is a gradual process and learners need the support of the educator to become increasingly more accurate in the use of their home language.

In Grade I learners become involved in listening to and reading stories, writing for genuine purposes, and learning phonics. The classroom environment should be a place that reflects and encourages all aspects of learning the home language.

Time scheduled for the modules 1 to 8

All learners should complete all eight modules doing approximately two modules per term. Allow the learners to proceed at their own speed.

The poem “Wishes” lends itself to discussion on what the learners will wish for:

An opportunity is given for writing their own “wishing” poem.

Learners at this age are usually very interested in dinosaurs and they listen to the factual writing on different kinds of dinosaurs as the educator reads it. Pictures illustrating these dinosaurs are available for them to refer to.

They use the dictionary to find out the meaning of difficult words and write short paragraphs on the similarities and differences between different kinds of dinosaurs.

Module 8 contains detailed instructions on how learners are to complete a project.

The story of Thunder follows.

Thunder and Spiky his friend, have an adventure and fly off in time. The learners have a problem when Thunder and Spiky turn up and ask to be taken home.

Learners themselves write an ending to the story.

More proverbs are discussed and a reading game is included.

  • Phonics: Learners learn plurals of words ending in “ey” and “y” and words that end in “dge” and “tion”.

Integration of themes

  • A healthy environment

Learners find out how a healthy environment can support life but life becomes extinct when catastrophies occur.

  • Human rights

Thunder and Spiky have caring, protecting parents as should be the case for all children.

  • Social Justice

When the two dinosaurs have to be cared for, learners become sensitive to differences between their needs and those of the learners. In the same way people are different but in spite of their differences they should be treated with respect and their feelings taken into consideration.
