LET US KNOW
We have already learnt to use a, an and the.
Can you try to fill the blanks below with a, an and the?
This is a ball.
There is an Ink bottle.
The sun is hot.
This is an owl.
These words are known as articles. Let us learn how to use them again!
We use an before words that begin with the sounds of a,e,i,o and u
We use a when the words begin with any other sound.
Why we use an for hour and a for university?
This is because hour sounds like ox and orange in the beginning so we use an. Similarly, the word university even though starts with the letter ‘u’ has the same sound as yellow or yak in the beginning so we use a.
Write a or an.
Why don't we use an for home and not a for umbrella?
a book ; an ant ; a chair ; an egg ; a pot ; an inn ; a flag ; a unicorn
We already know that the is used when we talk of a particular thing. The article, the is also used before the names of unique things like mountains, rivers, lakes, seas, oceans, famous books and directions.

LET US SPEAK
See how they speak at this situation and practise as if you were in that situation. A teacher is teaching the class.
In today’s class we are going to learn about verbs.
Verbs are action words, they tell us what action is happening or going to happen.
Miss, I have a doubt.
What is the doubt?
What is an action miss?
An action is anything we do. Like now I am standing, you are sitting. We eat during the lunch. All such words are action words.
Got it, miss. Thank you.
When you have a doubt or you don’t understand something in the class. You should always raise your hand and ask your teacher.
Some useful structures to help you:
What does ‘verb’ it mean?
I did not understand. Can you please teach again?
I have a doubt.
I am not able to understand.
Can you help?
Could you please explain?
After clearing your doubt, you should always thank your teacher.
Note to the teacher: Make the children practise these phrases and give them different scenarios to practise.
