ENGLISH FIRST ADDITIONAL LANGUAGE

Stripes and Stars

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.

Learners distinguish between sh and ch sounds and spell common words correctly. The sounds “oo”, “th”, “ea”, “all”, “y” and “ay” are also introduced. They are given an opportunity to write sentences/ a story without the help of a frame and to look up the meaning of words in a dictionary.

Learners discuss the issue of the monkeys making fun of Baby Zebra who was born without stripes.

Integration of themes

  • Social Justice

Everyone is unique and their differences should be respected and not made fun of.

  • Human rights

Everyone has rights – even the handicapped.

LEANER SECTION

Content

  • Listen to the story.
  • Pick out the words you don’t know.
  • Read them.
  • Read the story several times.

Stripes and Stars – Part 1

Long, long ago

and far, far away –

when there were no cities or towns.

no trains or cars or aeroplanes.

no people living on the earth –

there were great, green forests

that covered the earth,

from the seashores

up to the highest mountains.

There were wide flowing rivers

with green, green bushes on their banks

and fish, many fish swimming in the water of the river.

And there were animals.

animals of every kind

big ones, huge ones, tall ones and small ones

and they all lived in peace with one another.

There was enough space for all the animals.

There was enough food for all the animals.
