    • PLACES (Pictures source: http://www.mes-english.com)Vocabulary for Places 22
    • 23
    • Include the names of places in your sentences to make them more interesting. Forexample, instead of writing ‘There are many children in the picture,’ you may write ‘Thereare many children at the playground.”Reinforcement: Redo the exercise on page 21. Change ‘in the picture’ to names of placesaccording to the picture.Homework: Find more names of places from the dictionary / Pictionary and write themdown in your vocabulary book. 24
    • Actions (Verbs) (Year 4 – Unit 1: What Do You Like?, Year 5 – Unit 10: What Games Do YouPlay?, Year 6 – Unit 4: Magical Movements) (Picture source: http://www.mes-english.com) 25
    • 26
    • 27
    • Extra activity: Find more verbs / actions. You can use the picture dictionary. Write theverbs / actions in your vocabulary book together with their meanings in Bahasa Malaysia. 28
    • Pre-Writing 3: Formula S-V-W Article/Number Subject be Verb Wh-questions (A/An, two, (The ‘doer’) (is / are) (verb + ing) (What, Where, three, many, Who) several, a few) A boy is holding a ball. An old man is reading newspaper. Four women are sitting on the bench. Several girls are running. Example 1: Article/Number Subject be Verb Wh cat An old is holding a woman cat. old woman Sentence: hold An old woman is holding a cat. Example 2: Article/Number Subject be Verb Wh A rabbit is pulling a pull carrot.rabbit Sentence: carrot A rabbit is pulling a carrot. Example 3: Article/Number Subject be Verb Wh run A girl is running. - Sentence: girl A girl is running. 29
    • Before we start writing, let’s practice some basic grammar items first.I. Articles: a, anNotes:The article ‘a’ and ‘an’ means ‘one’.The article ‘a’ is placed before a word that starts with the consonant sound.Example: a boy, a girl, a cat, a rabbitThe article ‘an’ is placed before a word that starts with the vowel sound.Example: an old man, an old woman, an orange, an appleExercise: Fill in the blanks with ‘a’ or ‘an’.______ computer______ boy______ cat______ umbrella______ Eskimo______ elephant______ tiger______ pyramid______ tall boy______ old woman______ old man______ Iban boy______ experiment______ apple______ orange______ small umbrella______ igloo______ architect______ taxi______ car______ office 30
    • II. Be VerbExamples of be verbs are ‘is’ and ‘are’.The verb ‘is’ is placed after a singular subject.Example: A boy is playing football.The verb ‘are’ is placed after a plural subject.Example: Several boys are playing football.Exercise: Fill in the blanks with ‘is’ or ‘are’.1. Some women _______ collecting rubbish.2. A man ______ dumping garbage into the drain.3. A boy ______ digging a hole.4. Several boys _______ cleaning the blackboard.5. Some pupils ________ sweeping the floor.6. Three children ________ wiping the windows.7. A woman _______ asking her worker to clean the stall.8. A man _______ buying some fish at the stall.9. A fishmonger _______ selling some fish at the stall.10. A gardener ________ trimming the hedge.11. A few women ________ watering the plants.12. Puan Farah ________ cooking chicken curry.13.

A teacher ________ pointing to the whiteboard.18. Many children _______ playing in the park.19. Several doctors ________ treating the patients.20. Puan Salwa and her maid _______ mopping the kitchen floor. 31
    • III. Verb + ingWe add the suffix ‘-ing’ to root verbs when we want to write sentences using ContinuousTense. When the verbs with the suffix ‘-ing’ is put after the ‘be verbs’ (‘is’ or ‘are’), it willbecome Present Continuous Tense.When do we use Present Continuous Tense? We use Present Continuous Tense when wewant to write about something that is happening now, at this moment.It is best to use Present Continuous Tense when writing sentences for Section A of UPSRPaper 2.For most verbs, we can directly add the suffix ‘-ing’ at the end.Examples: play – playing, read – reading, sleep – sleepingFor verbs that end with the letter ‘e’, we have to omit the letter ‘e’ first before addingthe suffix ‘-ing’.Examples: write – writing, arrange – arranging, bake – bakingSometimes, we have to double the final letters of some verbs before we can add thesuffix ‘-ing’ at the end.Examples: run – running, swim – swimming, put – puttingThe best way to identify which rule to apply when adding the suffix ‘-ing’ at the end ofverbs is by reading a lot of English books, and by doing a lot of grammar practices. 32
    • Exercise: Add the suffix ‘-ing’ at the end of the verbs. Find the meaning of each verb inthe dictionary. Write it down in your vocabulary book. WORDS VERB + ING WORDS VERBS + ING Add Cycle Answer Dance Arrange Decorate Ask Deliver Assemble Destroy Bake Design Bark Disqualify Bathe Do Bargain Dig Beat Draw Become Dream Below Drink Blow Drive Boil Drop Borrow Dry Bring Eat Brush Engage Build Enjoy Buy Enter Call Exercise Catch Explore Cheer Fail Clap Fast Clean Feed Clear Feel Collect Fight Comb Fish Come Finish Cook Fly Cost Gather Cover Get 33

    • Back to writing!Now, how do we use adjectives in our writing? There are three simple ways.I. Add appropriate adjectives before any nouns in the sentence.Example 1: Sentence 1: There are several tables at the library. Sentence 2: There are several big tables at the spacious library. (big – besar, spacious – luas)In the example above, the adjective ‘big’ is added before the noun ‘tables’, and theadjective ‘spacious’ is added before the noun ‘library’.Example 2: Sentence 1: A few pupils are reading books. Sentence 2: A few hardworking pupils are reading books. (hardworking – rajin)In this example, the adjective ‘hardworking’ is added before the noun ‘pupils’ to describethe pupils in the picture. 52
    • Practice: Add appropriate adjectives to the nouns in the sentences below. A woman is standing on a chair. (Adjectives: frightened – takut, small – kecil) A frightened woman is standing on a small chair. A boy is laughing at the woman. (Adjective: mischievous – nakal) _________________________________________________ _________________________________________________ A girl is looking at the kitchen floor. (Adjective: curious – ingin tahu, messy - berterabur) _________________________________________________ _________________________________________________ A mouse is standing beside a box. (Adjective: tiny – kecil, rectangular – berbentuk segiempat tepat) _________________________________________________ _________________________________________________ 53

    • II. Write sentences to describe the people in the picture using appropriate adjectives.Examples: The pupils are hardworking. The woman is frightened. The boys are artistic. The children are diligent. The family is busy. 55
    • III. Write sentences to describe the nouns in the picture (the place, objects, plants,animals, etc) using appropriate adjectives.Examples: The library is spacious.

    • Spice it up again! Use adverbs.Adjectives describe nouns. Adjectives tell us how someone or something looks like orfeels like.Adverbs describe verbs.

(mischiveously – dengan nakalnya) Sentence 1: The women are working. (How?) Sentence 2: The women are working busily. (busily – dengan sibuknya) 58
