Rooms in the house

Activity 1

To understand words in context [lo 6.6.4]

ROOMS IN THE HOUSE

In our second module we shall be talking about our homes. Our homes are the places where we live. There are many types of homes, which also vary in size. We shall be looking inside our homes, outside our homes and hearing about other people’s homes. Enjoy the visit!

A. Cut out the pictures of the rooms and paste them in the correct places in the house. Pay special attention to the names of the different rooms.

B. In your groups let each learner choose two of the rooms. Take turns to explain to the rest of the group what you do in those rooms.

Complete the following sentences by filling in the missing word.

a) The car is parked in the ……………………………………

b) Mum prepares food in the ………………………………..

c) We watch television in the ………………………………..

d) My brother sleeps in his own …………………………….

e) We eat dinner in the ……………………………….

f) I bath or shower in the ………………………………..

g) I do my homework in the ……………………………….

h) We store our suitcases and old toys in the …………………………..

i) We play table tennis in the ………………………………..

j) Our swimming pool is in the …………………………………

k) We keep our gardening tools in the ………………………………..

l) Our guests sleep in the …………………………………..

kitchen study playroom shed spare room dining room

Activity 2

To repeat the same structure to create a poetic rhythm [lo 4.3.1]

SONG TO SING

This song can be sung to the tune of "Are you sleeping...?" (Frère Jacques). If you do not know the tune you will be able to clap out the rhythm by counting the syllables in the song.

A. Work in your groups and count the syllables in each line. If a word is made up of more than one syllable, break it up like this: e.g. hos/ pi/ tal.

This is my house (2x)

I am proud (2x)

You are very welcome (2x)

Please come inside (2x)

B. As a group, you are going to make up a second verse. Check that each line has the correct number of syllables. Once your song is complete your educator will allow you an opportunity to present it to the class. You may sing it or present it as a rap.

C) Now it is your turn to be creative. Write the next verse on your own. Remember to count the syllables in each line.

Assessment

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

We know this when the learner:

4.3 writes creatively:

4.3.1 uses some techniques for creative writing: repeating the same structure to create a poetic rhythm and pattern.

Learning outcome 6: language structure and use

The learner will know and be able to use the sounds, words and grammar of the language and interpret texts.

Assessment standard

We know this when the learner:

6.6 develops own vocabulary:

6.6.4 understands between 2 000 and 3 500 common spoken words in context by the end of grade 4.

Memorandum

Activity 1

ROOMS IN THE HOUSE

The learner is afforded the opportunity to learn vocabulary - the names of the rooms in the house in a fun and “hands on” way – cutting and pasting.

Discuss the criteria in the “Rooms in our House” checklist prior to learners beginning this activity.

Check the learners’ understanding of the new vocabulary by letting them complete the sentences.

Answers: garage; kitchen; lounge; bedroom; dining room; bathroom; study; cellar; playroom; garden; shed; spare room

Activity 2

SONG TO SING

Revise the concept of syllables by letting each learner say their first and last name in “syllable rhythm” E.g. Ma-ry-Mc-Do-nald = 5 syllables They love this!

Show them how to clap out a rhythm by clapping out a simple song that is familiar to them. e.g. Ma-ry-had-a-li-ttle-lamb…

Now that you have empowered them with knowledge about syllables, they can work in their groups.

20/(×-6^2)
Salomon
okay, so you have 6 raised to the power of 2. what is that part of your answer
ninjadapaul
I don't understand what the A with approx sign and the boxed x mean
ninjadapaul
it think it's written 20/(X-6)^2 so it's 20 divided by X-6 squared
Salomon
I'm not sure why it wrote it the other way
Salomon
I got X =-6
Salomon
ok. so take the square root of both sides, now you have plus or minus the square root of 20= x-6
ninjadapaul
oops. ignore that.
ninjadapaul
so you not have an equal sign anywhere in the original equation?
ninjadapaul
hmm
Abhi
is it a question of log
Abhi

The answer is neither. The function, 2 = 0 cannot exist. Hence, the function is undefined.

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

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.

the Beer law works very well for dilute solutions but fails for very high concentrations. why?
