Thomas flies high

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.

New words are introduced and learnt before learners read the story of Thomas. Thomas leaves his home and friends to follow the advice of strangers. This leads to his death. The life cycle of frogs is studied in this module.

Learners are exposed to a mindmap of creatures in the forest.

Integration of themes.

  • Social Justice

Learners should heed the warnings of friends and parents and be careful of strangers.

  • A healthy environment

Keep ponds, rivers clean because of the creatures that inhabit them.

By studying the life cycle of the frog learners become aware of the wonder of nature and their responsibility towards it.

Prasenjit Reply
At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.
