CAPS document Grade 4

There are a lot of homes choolers visiting this blog. For that reason I’ve decided to “translate” the 120 page CAPS document into easier parts.

Teaching Time for Afrikaans FAL in Grade 4 should be 5 hours per week divided in the following way:

Activity Hours
Listening and speaking (luister en praat) 1
Reading and viewing (Lees en kyk) 2.5
Writing and presenting (skryf en aanbied) 1
Language structures and conventions. 30min
