English first additional language

Bobtail part 1

Educator section

Memorandum

In Grade 2 the learners will build new experiences in the additional language on those learnt in Grade 1 as well as those learnt in their Home Language. They will continue to need many listening and speaking opportunities so as to develop their reading and writing skills in Grade 2.

A wide vocabulary is very important. The ICS modules for Grade 2 provide opportunities for the revision of Grade 1 vocabulary and they gradually introduce and consolidate new vocabulary by means of poems, rhymes, stories, riddles and jokes and games to play.

Learners are encouraged to answer questions, and to take part in discussions and conversations on familiar topics.

The attention is drawn to the sounds of letters in the additional language and learners discover that some letters sound the same as in their home language whereas others differ.

Although the educator will attend to correct pronunciation at this stage, learners should always be encouraged to speak the additional language without feeling incompetent and self-conscious.

By keeping the dictionary pages at the end of each module in a file, learners can revise the vocabulary and use these lists as a personal dictionary to which they can refer when completing or writing sentences and stories.

Time scheduled for the modules 1 to 8

It is suggested that the average learners complete all eight modules during the year, completing ± two modules per term.

The slower learners will proceed at their own pace while the quick learners can be given more tasks if necessary.

All learners in Grade 2 should be exposed to all the listening, speaking and reading activities in these eight modules to ensure that progression occurs throughout.

Bobtail I tells the story of the rabbit family living on Farmer Brown’s farm. Naughty, disobedient Bobtail goes off on an adventure but escapes just in time.

The stories provide enough repetitive dialogue which learners will find easy to read and to dramatise. Large pictures will encourage discussion. Phonics activities make learners aware of similar beginning sounds in the additional language.

Counting activities and names of the days of the week lend themselves to the integration of Literacy and Mathematics.

Learner’s transcribe sentences in the additional language.

Integration of themes

  • Human Rights

It is the farmer’s right to protect his crops.

  • Social Justice

Bobtail was being disobedient.

  • Inclusively

Everybody (and the bunnies) belong to a family. Family life brings responsibility and consideration for one another.

Assessment

Learning Outcome 1: LISTENING : The learner is able to listen for information and enjoyment and respond appropriately and critically in a wider range of situations.

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

1.1.2 acts out the story and says the words spoken by the characters;

1.1.5 answers simple, literal yes/no and open questions with short answers;

1.1.7 answers questions that connect the story to own life in own home language;

Assessment Standard 1.5: We know this when the learner shows respect for classmates by giving them a chance to speak, listening to them and encouraging their attempts to speak their additional language;

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

Assessment Standard 2.2: We know this when the learner memorises and performs songs, action rhymes and simple poem;

Assessment Standard 2.5: We know this when the learner talks about a drawing or picture;

Assessment Standard 2.6: We know this when the learner attends to pronunciation as part of reading;

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 3.1: We know this when the learner uses pictures to understand written texts:

3.1.5 draws a picture to illustrate a sentence;

Assessment Standard 3.3: We know this when the learner recognises and makes meaning of letters and words:

3.3.1 recognises on sight an increasing number of high-frequency words;

Assessment Standard 3.5: We know this when the learner reads fiction and non-fiction books at an appropriate level for information and enjoyment.

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

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.

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