Autumn in the forest

Educator section

Memorandum

Educator’s page :

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 Wops have feasts every season. In this module they are celebrating autumn.

Baby Wops disappears and the Wise Old Owl helps them find her.

Jumbled words help learners solve the riddles.

  • Writing and Phonics: q, u, y, i, j, t, x, z.
  • Wordbuilding: de, pe.

Integration of themes

With the Wops celebrating Autumn in the forest, attention is drawn to the ways in which different cultures have different celebrations – Social Justice – Learners become sensitive to these differences.

Integrate with Mathematics and Life Orientation.

The autumn feast – chapter 3

The party was a happy one. Everyone was singing and dancing and telling tales of long, long ago. The best story was the one told by the Wise Old Owl. He told them of how the Wops lived in caves many many years ago. How they made fires to keep the wild beasts from their caves. How they walked for miles looking for food. There were no underground tunnels and trains; there wasn’t a mall! These were stories of long, long ago when Willy’s grandfather and grandmother were young.

When the sun came up the Wops went home. The Daddies carried their children who had fallen asleep and put them to bed. The festival was over. What fun they had! And now it’s autumn – autumn in the forest of the Wops.

Questions:

1. Retell the story of long, long ago.

2. The Wops went home at sunset. True or false?

3. The Wops went home at sunrise. True or false?

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.
