There are riddles to read and games to play.

  • Writing: r, h, l, c, o, a.
  • Phonics: r, h, l, c, o, a.

INTEGRATION OF THEMES

  • SOCIAL JUSTICES

Learners can be made aware of different cultures/different people have different ways of celebrating e.g. birthdays. They must learn to accept these differences.

Educators Page

  • Group work

1. Learners bring old birthday cards to school to discuss and analyse.

- How are they made? How are they folded? Shape?

- What makes them attractive? Pictures? Colours?

- What does the card say?

- Why are there open spaces?

2. Learners will make a rough sketch to design their own cards. They can decide:

- What to draw.

- What message they will send.

- How they are going to write their messages. (They can ask the teacher to write them lightly and they can print over the letters or make any other plans they can think of)

- What they will need. (Make a list of drawings of tools needed.) They collect and bring these.

3. They make their cards.

4. They show it to the class. Positive comments are encouraged when learners consider their friends’ cards and maybe suggest improvements. Much praise is needed to encourage learners.

5. Display cards in the room.

LO 2

LO/AS 1.3

  • Phonics

The following sounds are introduced in this learning unit. Follow the steps for each as set out in Learning Unit.

“r” as in rose

“h” as in house

“l” as in leg

“c” as in cat

“o” as in orange

“a” as in apple

  • Writing

The correct letter formation is taught after the sound has been introduced. Learners decorate their patterns.

  • Dictionary Pages

Words with two sounds are on one page. These words can be introduced when the second sound on the page has been taught. Keep these pages in flip-files. They will form their first dictionaries and learners can use the words for their own stories later.

  • Vocabulary Pages

These are used for revising and consolidating new words learnt. Keep in flip-files for stories later.

  • The teacher puts all these words on flash cards for revision games and quick recognition.

Willy has a birthday

This morning Willy woke up very early - so early that the birds were not awake yet. Only the wind was awake, rustling through leaves above their tree house. At first Willy could not remember why he was feeling so excited. Then suddenly he remembered. It was his birthday! Today he was eight years old. He thought about all the exciting things that were going to happen and quickly jumped out of bed.

Willy looked out the window to see what the weather was like. It was still quite dark, but he could see there were no clouds in the sky. Hooray! There would be no rain for his party.

Licky was asleep on the veranda, but he woke up immediately when he heard Willy. Willy picked Licky up and put him on his shoulder and together they watched the sunrise.

Mummy and Daddy came out and gave Willy a big hug and a kiss. “Happy Birthday, Willy,” they said. “We hope you enjoy your birthday.” Willy felt proud and important. It felt grand to be eight years old!

I suppose you are wondering when Willy is going to get his present? Well, the Wops never get presents for their birthdays. No, they do something different altogether. Every Wop child has a special tree. Their dads plant the trees when they are born and every year when they have their birthdays a mark is made on the tree trunk. There are seven marks on Willy’s tree and Dad is now going to make the eighth mark so that anyone who passes the tree will know that Willy is eight years old. Every year the Wops decorate their special tree and Sam and Terry will help Willy decorate his special tree with long ribbons of different colours. Willy loves his birthdays. He is very excited and he can’t wait for his forest friends to come to his party.

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

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.
