Betty Botta bought some butter.

“But,” said she, “this butter’s bitter!

If I put it in my batter,

It will make my batter bitter.

But a bit o’ better butter

Will but make my batter better.”

So she bought a bit o’ butter

Better than the bitter butter,

Made her bitter batter better.

So ‘twas better Bettty Botta

Bought a bit o’ better butter.

A flea and a fly in a flue

Were caught, so what could they do?

Said the fly, “Let us flee.”

“Let us fly,” said the flea.

So they flew through a flaw in the flue.

3.6.4 solves word puzzles;

3.7 uses reference books and develops vocabulary:

3.7.1 uses a dictionary;

3.7.2 demonstrates a reading vocabulary of between 2 000 and 3 500 common words.

LO 4

WRITING The learner will be able to write different kinds of factual and imaginative texts for a wide range of purposes.

We know this when the learner:

4.3 writes creatively:

4.3.1 writes a play script or dialogue;

4.5 treats writing as a process, and uses developing knowledge or language structure and use:

4.5.1 writes rough drafts;

Memorandum

ACTIVITY 1

We all know these tongue twisters! Have fun with tongue twisters by seeing how quickly they can be read/said – without getting confused! They are found in the learners’ module.

Discuss with the learners

  • what makes this kind of poetry unique
  • the style of this kind of poetry
  • rhyme
  • alliteration

Encourage the learners to find other tongue twisters and to bring them to class to read or recite. This kind of poem lends itself to lots of fun – and ultimately the pupils will enjoy poetry. Groups of learners, reciting or reading tongue twisters, can compete against each other.

Encourage the learners to display their choices on the pinboard, or allow them to paste their tongue twister onto an extra page in their unit of work.

Poetry is for enjoyment. Keep this in mind at all times.

ACTIVITY 2

Finding out about interviewing:

Now give them the instructions:

Work with a partner.

One of you is the interviewer and must interview the other.

You may select topics of your own.

Use current news stories.

You may only use 1 prop each.

Allow the learners to complete the checklist below, before presenting their interview to the rest of the class.

Remember that it is never easy interviewing someone. It is a skill that needs to be practised. Allow the learners to practise in class – so that you can help if necessary. It is simple if you allow half the class to practise at one time (a bit noisy!) while the other half of the class ‘ tutors’ them.

The following checklist can be put up on newsprint, on the chalkboard or even handed out to the learners, before the time. This serves as a guide while they are working in their groups.

Checklist

1. The questions lead to informative answers. Yes No
2. The interviewer spoke clearly and audibly. Yes No
3. Enough time was given to answer properly. Yes No
4. The topic was interesting and newsworthy. Yes No
5. The interviewer introduced the guest. Yes No
6. This was an enjoyable task. Yes No

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
s.
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
Tarell
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
Damian
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.

anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
Prasenjit
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
Azam
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
Prasenjit
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
Damian
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
Damian
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
