Hello, willy!

Educator section

Memorandum

For the Educator:

The adventures of the Wops family are closely related to the experience of every learner in Grade I, boys as well as girls. They may be exposed to a different environment if they live in towns and cities and through the stories become aware of what it is like to live in a forest without the ordinary amenities like running water and electricity.

Educators need to remember that many learners in Grade I will not have attended Grade R and consequently skills, strategies and concepts for Grade R will not have been learnt. The educator in Grade I must ensure that these are covered in the work that is done with these learners.

Listening and speaking should form a firm foundation on which to build literacy. The degree to which learners can speak their home language will vary according to circumstances, and educators should be aware of their levels of competence.

Language development is a gradual process and learners need the support of the educator to become increasingly more accurate in the use of their home language.

In Grade I learners become involved in listening to and reading stories, writing for genuine purposes, and learning phonics. The classroom environment should be a place that reflects and encourages all aspects of learning the home language.

Time scheduled for the modules 1 to 8

All learners should complete all eight modules doing approximately two modules per term. Allow the learners to proceed at their own speed.

The learners get a visit from Willy but many problems will arise.

The techniques and strategies of problem solving are practised.

Polite forms of greeting are practised when the poem is read and acted.

  • Phonics: Words with “ oo ” and “ ee ” are learnt.
  • Writing: Learners now begin to write between narrow lines.

Integration of themes

  • A healthy environment

Although Willy leaves home to spend a weekend with the learners in there environment, he needs to feel safe, protected and cared for – Human rights . Learners can do much to keep their environments clean and free from dangers.

In this module Willy Wop pays a visit to the children. This serves as preparation for the last module when they pay a visit to Willy and all the Wops in the forest. The learners must remember that Willy is much smaller than they are. In the first module Willy’s length is described as being, “just as high as Teacher’s knee”. They are going to plan activities to do with Willy. They will decide which problems Willy will have to cope with in their homes, e.g.: Will he be able to reach doorknobs? Will he be able to eat with a knife and a fork? Where will he sleep?

In this module writing is done in the lines as examples show. Learners need constant practice in writing between these lines. Their stories are still written on blank paper.

Keep flashing words learned in previous modules, also adding these learned in Module 7.

Learners discuss the concepts similarities and differences. pictures out of magazines can be used, e.g. comparing pictures of two cars. what are the similarities? differences? when they understand these concepts they can do the activity.

Assessment

Learning Outcome 1: LISTENING : The learner is able to listen for information and enjoyment and respond appropriately and critically in a wider range of situations.

Assessment Standard 1.1: We know this when the learner listens attentively to instructions and announcements, and responds appropriately;

Learning Outcome 2: SPEAKING : The learner is able to communicate confidently and effectively in spoken language in a wide range of situations.

Assessment Standard 2.7: We know this when the learner tells a familiar short story that has a beginning, middle and ending, using pictures for support if necessary;

Learning Outcome 3: READING AND VIEWING : The learner is able to read and view for information and enjoyment and respond critically to the aesthetic, cultural and emotional values in texts.

Assessment Standard 3.4: We know this when the learner recognises letters and words and makes meaning of written text:

3.4.1 reads simple written materials for different purposes;

3.4.3 uses phonic and word recognition skills to decode new or unfamiliar words in context;

Assessment Standard 3.5: We know this when the learner develops phonic awareness:

3.5.10 recognises some high-frequency sight words.

Learning Outcome 5: THINKING AND REASONING : The learner is able to use language to think and reason, and access, process and use information for learning.

Assessment Standard 5.1: We know this when the learner uses language to develop concepts:

5.1.1 demonstrates developing knowledge of concepts such as quantity.

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.

what is the Synthesis, properties,and applications of carbon nano chemistry
Abhijith Reply
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.

Do you know which machine is used to that process?

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
Azam
Hello
Uday
I'm interested in Nanotube
Uday
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
