Ma'am is it necessary to study all the activities that are given after each chapters???

Arasi S.

Learning the process of doing the activities is more essential than studying the activities.
The book focuses on teaching the communicative skills in all aspects of a language; here it happens to be that of English. Chillax just learn the process and enjoy completing your activities.

How will u identity syllable

Arasi S.

Dear Sivakami,
The site quoted below will help you identify syllable
"5 Ways to Count Syllables." HowManySyllables.com. How Many Syllables, n.d. Web. 10 October 2019.

Arasi S.

1. Separate prefixes and suffixes from root words.
examples: pre-view, work-ing, re-do, end-less, & out-ing

2. Are two (or more) consonants next to each other?
Divide between the 1st and 2nd consonants.
examples: buf-fet, des-sert, ob-ject, ber-ry, & pil-grim

3. Never split 2 consonants that make only 1 sound when pronounced together and aren't the same letter (i.e., 'ff').
examples: th, sh, ph, th, ch, & wh

4. Is the consonant surrounded by vowels?
Does the vowel have a long sound? (Like the 'i' in line)
Divide before the consonant.
examples: ba-by, re-sult, i-vy, fro-zen, & Cu-pid

5. Does the vowel have a short sound? (Like the 'i' in mill)
Divide after the consonant.
examples: met-al, riv-er, mod-el, val-ue, & rav-age

6. Does the word end with 'ckle'?
Divide right before the 'le.'
examples: tack-le, freck-le, tick-le, & buck-le

7. Does the word end with 'le' (not 'ckle')?
Is the letter before the 'le' a consonant?
Divide 1 letter before the 'le.'
examples: ap-ple, rum-ble, fa-ble, & ta-ble
Is the letter before the 'le' a vowel?
Do nothing.
examples: ale, scale, sale, file, & tile

Mam, please answer the page number 15

Arasi S.

Dear Sreeja
though i'm not the author, these are the following steps to get to the answers for pg 15:

* find a good dictionary probably Oxford, Cambridge or Merriam Webster, if you own one please take time to go through the pages of it and find the meaning; alternative way is to use the online dictionary like:
https://www.oxfordlearnersdictionaries.com/wordlist/english/oxford3000/

* As for finding the rhyming words a pronunciation dictionary of Daniel Jones would be helpful.
Apart from that try to pronounce the words as your teacher taught you and try to change the consonant sounds eg. sound, round, found. Take care NOT all words will spell and rhyme same.

* To find out synonyms and antonyms Roget's Thesaurus would be helpful or any online link
https://www.thesaurus.com/browse/search

* of course the last part of the writing activity. You have to step outside and listen to conversations and discuss.

Sreeja c s nair

Thank you mam
