Educator section

Memorandum

Using progress reports and profiles of the learners in Grade 1, the Grade 2 educator can assess the ability of each learner in the class.

The Grade 2 educator also needs to know which work has been covered in Grade 1 so that she can revise, consolidate and re-teach where necessary, before proceeding to the Grade 2 phonics, writing, reading etc. Make sure the learners understand the written instructions on each page. The learners furthermore need to know where and when to go for help when doing written work e.g. finding out how to spell a word etc.

The slower learners need continual support whereas the fast learners can be given additional work based on the activities for further stimulation.

TIME SCHEDULE FOR THE MODULES 1 – 7

All learners should complete all seven modules during the year. Allow them to progress at their own speed covering ± one and a half modules per term.

In this module learners read and listen to stories portraying the relationships within families. Feelings are discussed and decisions are made.

Vowels learnt in Grade 1 are revised and word building using these are practised.

Using the letter “ y ’ as a vowel, is introduced and learners are made aware of the different phonetic sounds of the letter “ y ’.

Learners practise those letters which they do incorrectly and the educator re-teaches these.

integration of themes

  • a healthy environment

Discuss whether foxes contribute to a healthy environment or not? Give reasons for farmers wanting to eliminate them.

  • human rights

All family members have rights and each one needs to be respected in the home.

social justice

Compare living conditions, rules etc. in the story of ‘Anati’ to their own. What are the similarities and differences?

  • inclusivity

What are Anati and her family deprived of? Why? Discuss what can be done to resolve the issues.

LO 4.2.1

Bob the fox

Bob is a fox. He lives in the woods with his family. Bob has lots of brothers and sisters. There are ten children altogether. One day his dad went to get supper. He came back with a big fat hen.

“We will eat well tonight, my children!” he said.

The next day the farmer was cross. He took his gun. He wanted to find Bob’s dad.

Mum was sad. “Oh no! Children you must run and hide!” Luckily Bob had a plan!

When the farmer came to the woods, he saw a fox next to a tree. He wanted to shoot it. The fox said, “You can’t catch me !” and ran away.

The farmer ran after him. Suddenly he saw the fox behind a log. He lifted his gun to shoot. The fox said, “You can’t catch me!” and ran away.

The foxes began to appear everywhere. The farmer did not know where to shoot. He went home. He was cross because he did not shoot the fox. Bob and his family were so glad.

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.

Mostly, they use nano carbon for electronics and for materials to be strengthened.

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

how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
Damian
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?

not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
