Key unit competence

    Children should be able to use possessives in oral communication.

    4.1. Introduction
    This unit includes possessive adjectives and pronouns that will be taught using 
    songs, rhymes and poems. The use of active methodology is a better way of helping 
    children to acquire knowledge, skills and values as they practice possessives in their 
    daily communication.

    Lessons in this unit are distributed with reference to the syllabus and scheme of 

    work and teachers will use various ways to teach them. The teacher needs to make 
    sure that children are actively involved in teaching and learning activities so that 
    they are not bored. Songs, poems and rhymes are active ways through which the 
    content will be delivered.

    4.2. Cross-cutting issues to be addressed

    Gender education: While children are singing and reciting poems or rhymes boys 
    and girls will be given equal chance to sing. 

    Inclusive education
    : Where all children will be given equal chances and facilitation 
    to participate in the lesson.

    Peace and value education:
    In case of any conflicts between children the teacher 
    will intervene to handle them peacefully.
