ENGLISH FIRST ADDITIONAL LANGUAGE

Zigi

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.

Zigi, the baby zebra grows up and becomes King Leo’s best friend. Together they teach the monkeys and the crocodiles a lesson. Phonics are extended with the learning of the sounds “tch”, “ai”, “ay”, “e” at the end of a word changes the sounds of the vowels. More sounds: “ar”, “or, “oa”, “oe”, “ie”, “er”, “ur”, “oy” and “oi”.

Learners answer questions about a graph. They read a factual passage on “Animal Camouflage” and discuss what they have learnt.

Integration of themes

  • Social Justice

Patterns of behaviour are important and social skills should be developed and practised.

  • Human rights

By observing the behaviour of all the animals in the stories, learners become aware of the rights of the people around them.

  • A healthy environment

As the creatures of the forest need to live in harmony with one another, so must people learn correct behavioural patterns.

The naughty crocodiles

The crocodiles came out of the river.

They teased the little birds.

They would not open their mouths.

The little birds could not clean

the crocodiles’ teeth.

The crocodiles were naughty.

King Leo said, “Bring the crocodiles

to my lair, Zigi. They have been

naughty. I must teach them a lesson.

So Zigi brought the crocodiles to

King Leo’s lair.

King Leo told the crocodiles to open

their mouths so that the little birds

could clean their teeth.

“If your teeth are not cleaned,

they will rot.” said King Leo.

King Leo told the crocodiles not to

tease the little birds.

So the crocodiles did not tease

the little birds again.

King Leo was a very good king and

his best friend, Zigi, helped him.
