Midge – Part 3

EDUCATOR SECTION

Memorandum

For the Educator:

The ICS modules for Grade 3 encourage learners to do extensive reading, both fiction and non-fiction. They are given frequent opportunities to write and develop their vocabulary and language use. These developing skills are supported by techniques and strategies to develop phonic awareness. Word recognition and comprehension skills are practised and phonics systematically introduced and consolidated.

The learning outcomes for Grade 3 are purposefully integrated to enable learners to write about texts which they have listened to, discussed and read.

The topics chosen for the modules are of interest to the Grade 3 learner, within their range of experience and other learning areas, namely, Life Orientation and Mathematics are well integrated.

Learners in Grade 3 use their communication skills more effectively and given the opportunity, these can overcome social, cultural and language boundaries. They become more sensitive to the needs of everyone around them.

All aspects of language learning as described in the learning outcomes and assessment standards for Grade 3 have been covered in these eight ICS modules. By reinforcing, consolidating and applying these supported by the Critical and Developmental Outcomes, the learners will be able to think and reason in their home language.

Time scheduled for the modules

All learners should work through all eight modules as the phonics and cursive writing requirements are spread over these modules. The educator should however allow learners to complete them at their own pace namely ± two modules per term.

Granddad says Midge and the mice family must move house because another danger is lurking outside. Midge is invited to spend a weekend with the learners. They discuss what they are going to do and write about their plans. Midge replies with an account of his weekend.

There are two poems to read and to discuss, words to arrange alphabetically, crosswords to complete and picture writing to puzzle out.

  • Cursive writing: X, Z, C, G, S, E, L.
  • Phonics: “ar’, “are”, “ai” as in air, and “ear” words.

Library searches are done on owls and rodents and information ordered according to a spidergram.

Integration of themes

  • Social Justice

Midge helps learners to come to terms with differences in cultural and social habits.

  • A healthy environment

Just as Midge has to move house against his will, so learners have to adapt to a new environment. Learners discuss the reasons, the advantages and disadvantages of moving.
