to help you study!
Everybody learns differently. Each parent knows their child
ideas that you can for your children to get the
most out of study time.
Write it down. Teach children
to write down assignments the mo-
ment they are given at school. Time
management is a critical life skill that
should not be taken for granted.
Mummy and Daddy can study too! Make sure
that both of you can chat while you study. Mummy or daddy can
stop in every once in a while to ask how things are going. That way,
if you need help or have a question, they're just within reach.
No TV. The television is a huge
distraction. No matter what channel
is on, it will grab your child's atten-
tion, especially if their homework
assignment is especially challenging
or boring. Even just hearing the TV,
knowing others are watching can
create problems for a child trying to
concentrate. Make it a house rule
that the TV is off during study time.
That goes for mom and dad, too. No
DEVELOPING SENTENCE WRITING --Part 2
In Tutorial # 4 we learnt about and used some
strategies to make our writing more interesting and
effective. In this tutorial we will examine some more
strategies that will make our writing more readable.
This can be achieved by (a) Joining sentences
through the use of Relative Pronouns (b) Using Con-
junctions to join sentences and (c) Proper sequenc-
ing/ordering of sentences.
A. Using Relative Pronouns to Join Sentences
Relative Pronouns, like other pronouns, are used
instead of nouns and include 'who', 'whom',
'whose', 'that' and 'which'. These pronouns are
used to join sentences.
(a) 'Who' is used to relate or refer to a person or
persons that are the subject in a sentence.
(S1) Yesterday, we spoke to our friends. (S2) Our
friends live in the country. Since 'our friends' in
(S1) and (S2) refers to the same persons and is
also the Subject in (S2), we can join the two sen-
tences by using the word 'who'.
If we join the two sentences therefore, this can
read "Yesterday, we met our friends, who (our
friends) live in the country".
Practice Exercise 1:
Use 'who' to join the following sets of sentences.
(Hint:- Use 'who' immediately after the underlined
word/ words and omit the repeated word/words as re-
quired.) Some changes may be necessary in arranging a
few of the new sentences.
(i) Last weekend, at the market, Mummy and I
saw Ms. Davis. Ms. Davis is my class teacher.
(ii) That is the man. This man assisted us when
Daddy's car broke down.
(iii) That nurse is sitting at the table. The nurse
has attended to many patients, today.
(iv) The man is a lifeguard. That man patrols the
beach for the whole day.
(v) Dianne is an excellent musician. Dianne is also
a very good hockey player.
(b) 'Which' is used in place of things. It can replace
the Subjects and the Objects in the sentences
when we join them.
(S1) Our class will soon visit the museum. The mu-
seum (Subject) can be found in Port of Spain.
(S2) Our class will soon visit the museum which
(museum) can be found in Port of Spain.
If we join (S3) "Tim had rescued the small, furry
dog." (Object) and (S4) "Tim had found the small,
furry dog (Object) in the empty parking lot", our
new sentence now becomes: -
(S5) "Tim had rescued the small, furry dog which
(dog) he had found in the empty parking lot."
(c) 'That' is used for persons and things and can
occur instead of 'who', 'whom' and 'which'
when these refer to the subjects or objects in
