Story time

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.

The story of “The three Billy Goats Gruff” allows for questions to the answered, missing words to be filled into sentences and illustrations to be made.

Many new concepts and ideas are introduced in the poem “Story time” and educators can use these to initiate interesting discussions.

Integration of themes

  • A Healthy environment

The dangers which the three Billy Goats had to overcome can lead to dangers in the learners’ environment and means by which to overcome or avoid these.

  • Human rights

The goats were in search of good food. Children should be cared for and food should be available for everyone.

  • Social Justice

Privileges should not only be for a few but should be for everyone.

Leaner section

Content

  • A poem to listen to, to talk about, to read and to learn.

Story time

I love to hear the stories

of long, long ago,

how places were discovered

and where the wind will go.

Of giants up on the hilltops

and monsters in the sea,

of spaceships in outer space

and where the Queen drinks tea.

There are many lands to visit

in my bed at night.

The stories take me far away

as I watch the stars so bright.

But – now it’s time for bed I see

and mother calls, “Put off the light!”

For Mr Sandman, he’s been here

and I’m oh so sleepy – good night!

Assessment

Learning Outcome 1: LISTENING : The learner will be able to listen for information and enjoyment, and respond appropriately and critically in a wide range of situations.

Assessment Standard 1.1: We know this when the learner shows understanding of stories:

1.1.2 predicts what the story will be about from the title;

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

Assessment Standard 2.1: We know this when the learner answers questions using words and phrases;

Assessment Standard 2.2: We know this when the learner performs a rhyme, poem or song;

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 3.2: We know this when the learner begins to make meaning of written text by reading with the teacher:

3.2.1 reads the title;

3.2.3 answers literal questions about the story;

Assessment Standard 3.7: We know this when the learner develops phonic awareness:

3.7.1 recognises differences in pronunciation between home and additional language;

Assessment Standard 3.8: We know this when the learner develops phonic awareness:

3.8.1 reads and follows instructions (e.g. how to play a game).

Learning Outcome 4: WRITING : The learner will be able to write different kinds of factual and imaginative texts for a wide range of purposes.

Assessment Standard 4.6: We know this when the learner writes own sentences without a ‘frame’ (e.g. expressing feelings and personal opinions).

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
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
Prasenjit
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world
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.
