Life skills is a critically important subject to teach at the Foundation Phase level as it is at this unique time in a young learner’s development that an important grounding for later life can be established. Never will teachers have a better opportunity to shape learners’ knowledge, skills and values and to prepare them for the challenges and successes that lie ahead. Teaching life skills in the Foundation Phase equips teachers to support learners’ holistic development, both as citizens of South Africa and participants in a global community.

Teaching life skills in the Foundation Phase is based on sound pedagogical principles, providing many practical ideas to Foundation Phase teachers and student teachers (grades R–3). For easy reference between classroom practice and formal studies, this book is structured according to the CAPS Foundation Phase curriculum and focuses on the following knowledge areas:

  • Beginning knowledge (the teaching of natural sciences, technology and social sciences)
  • Creative arts education (the teaching of visual and performing arts)
  • Physical education (movement)
  • Personal and social well-being (addressing social issues such as sexuality education, health education, violence and abuse)

Teaching life skills in the Foundation Phase is aimed at teachers, school managers and parents.

Soon to be a major motion picture starring Cole Sprouse (Riverdale's Jughead) and Haley Lu Richardson (The Edge of Seventeen)!

In this moving story that’s perfect for fans of John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars, two teens fall in love with just one minor complication - they can’t get within a few feet of each other without risking their lives. Can you love someone you can never touch?

Stella Grant likes to be in control - even though her totally out of control lungs have sent her in and out of the hospital most of her life. At this point, what Stella needs to control most is keeping herself away from anyone or anything that might pass along an infection and jeopardize the possibility of a lung transplant. Six feet apart. No exceptions. The only thing Will Newman wants to be in control of is getting out of this hospital. He couldn’t care less about his treatments, or a fancy new clinical drug trial. Soon, he’ll turn eighteen and then he’ll be able to unplug all these machines and actually go see the world, not just its hospitals.

Will’s exactly what Stella needs to stay away from. If he so much as breathes on Stella she could lose her spot on the transplant list. Either one of them could die. The only way to stay alive is to stay apart. But suddenly six feet doesn’t feel like safety. It feels like punishment.

What if they could steal back just a little bit of the space their broken lungs have stolen from them? Would five feet apart really be so dangerous if it stops their hearts from breaking too?

Jou liggaam verander, nuwe emosies verwar jou en jy het honderd duisend vrae wat jy nie weet hoe of vir wie om te vra nie. Jy is skielik fyngevoelig, selfbewus en sommer net moeilik... Maar hoekom? En hoekom is daardie pes van n meisiekind ewe skielik vir jou so oulik? As al die bogenoemde waar is, is hierdie boek vir jou. Want jy is n puber en n nuwe wereld gaan vir jou oop. Selfs nog voor jongmense vir die eerste keer seks en seksualiteit ondervind, wonder meisies en seuns reeds n geruime tyd oor al hierdie dinge. Ouers weet meestal nie hoe om sulke sensitiewe vrae te beantwoord nie en het nie noodwendig tyd om by te hou met wat in hul tienerkinders se koppe aangaan nie. Met die gevaar van ongekontroleerde bronne op die internet vandag, is dit belangrik om die regte inligting van n betroubare bron te verkry, en dis wat hierdie boek poog om te doen. Jan von Holleben het op by kreatiewe en prettige wyse die avontuur van grootword deur middel van fotos daargestel, en Antje Helms gee insiggewende antwoorde op n direkte, maar sensitiewe, manier. Die boek bied antwoorde op allerhande vrae oor puberteit en seks wat jongmense nie noodwendig vir hul ouers wil vra nie.

When visiting a hospital in Montreal, Quebec, a few years ago, bestselling author India Desjardins met a 10-year-old girl with leukemia. The girl told her she that she was fed up. All the stories about children like her who had cancer had sad endings, so she didn't want to read them. She asked India to write a story about cancer with a happy ending instead, one with laughter and romance. India did, and the story became this book. I think about everything I'll miss if they tell me I'm going to die... my mum, my dad, my sister, cookies, TV shows I'll never get to see the end of, walking outside when it's really nice, the smell of autumn, the starry sky on a full moon, my grandparents, my grandpa's lasagna, kissing Victor, Victor's eyes, Victor's voice, Victor's smell, Victor's hands...Victor. A teenage girl heads towards the hospital waiting room where the doctors are going to tell her how much time she's got to live. As she walks, she thinks about her journey up to this point... the terrible decor in the hospital, wearing a headscarf, the horrible treatments, but also being with her friends, family, and her new boyfriend Victor. While this story has a happy ending, the girl offers an honest account of what it feels like to be a teenager with cancer. Like how she just wants everyone to treat her like a normal person and stop telling her how strong she is - especially her mum. And how, even though everyone is telling her to stay positive, she sometimes loses hope and even wants to die to make the pain go away. Dreamlike illustrations elegantly convey the emotional complexities. Like the girl in this story, the girl that India met at the hospital is now cured. She also fell in love during her illness. Today, around eight out of ten children who are diagnosed with cancer are cured. This story was written to give any child who has cancer hope.
