Demonstration lessons at iThemba Pre-primary 10 May 2017

May  2017

Three Africa A+ facilitators spent the day at iThemba Pre-primary demonstrating the A+ approach in action.  In the morning the facilitators did five demonstrations lessons in the three classroom with the teachers and children. The Grade R children enjoyed a morning  mathematics ring, followed by a story-treasure hunt-creative construction activity. The younger children enjoyed making music with rhythm sticks, and dramatising stories.  In the afternoon the staff and A+ facilitators got together to reflect on the morning’s work. Below are some of the ideas generated by the iThemba staff:

  • “Involve the children more in activities so that they feel part of their learning and feel pride in what they do”
  • ask open-ended questions
  • use waste materials to make story aids
  • hide numbers and number names in the garden
  • build sandcastles while measuring sand and water
  • go outside for learning activities
  • use a story as a starting point for maths and language learning
