Memorandum

ACTIVITY 1

1. Remind the learners what this means: study the word ;

cover the word ;

spell the word ;

write the word ;

check the word !

The answers are :

sketch ; much ; scratch ; hatch ; fetch ; itch ; duchess ; ditch ; catch ; kitchen

2. Match each invention to its use. This is a very straight forward task. This is a vocabulary task and the words can be used for spelling.

Apply the strateg to this task.

Devise a method to teach this task so that every child is exposed to all the words and everyone participates.

JUST FOR FUN!

Find out about an inventor or invention and come and tell about it!

(not to be assessed)

This activity is ‘just for fun’ and to give the children an opportunity to communicate informally. Do not expect them to stand up in front of the class with this oral task. Allow them to work in their groups – very informally. Do not assess.

ACTIVITY 2

Keep these LO’s in mind when working on this task. As before, this task in self-explanatory. The aim is to encourage the learners to state their opinions in a logical and confident way.

Extend this activity: each learner brings an interesting news article to school, reads and tells the partner or group members what they have read. (Is it a good article; why; why was it chosen; what is it about?). Let them discuss how they could slant or change the angle of the article. Even better, let the group select one article out of all that were brought by their group members – let everyone try to angle the article differently.
