Today is going to be a fun day! We are going to expand geometric patterns, learn more about symmetry, measure length, answer questions about a graph, write a phonics test, and do a reading comprehension activity. There is also a speaking activity if Afrikaans is your additional language. Can you do it? Yes, you can!
If you’re new here, the resources used for counting in multiples, sounds learnt (to be cut into sound cards to build words), phonics lists and reading sight words (to be cut out in order to flash the words) can be downloaded here. There are also some practice assessments available on the page.
Maths methods – summary: This is useful to keep on hand should you forget how each of the different methods in Maths is calculated. Mathematics is one of those subjects where you will always have to show how you got your answer, whether you are in Grade 1 or at university, so make sure to include all the steps for each type of sum. Always leave one line open before starting a new sum – as indicated by the orange crosses.
Measurement – Length:
Phonics – New words: The new lists are available to print here. You don’t need to learn or write the sentences – they are simply there to help you understand what the words mean. Only sound out the words in the blocks on the left and ask Mom or Dad to test how well you know them.
Reading – Comprehension:
Afrikaans First Additional Language – Vocabulary: Can you say the names of all the fruit and vegetables without the sound? Try your best to always speak in full sentences.
The book I used for the Afrikaans vocabulary is the following:
You did it!
Now go have loads of fun!
