Topic 84: 閱讀策略

Comprehension strategies: Making references

What does ‘it’ refer to? 🧐🤔
是小一至小六都會出現的閲讀理解題目,
同學要留意以下幾點:

1. 留意行數,圈起’it’

2. 答案一般都是指這個代詞 ‘it’前面出現的名詞,如附圖第一題,答案就只有 ‘a carton of milk’ (有些同學見 ‘trolley’ 與 ‘it’十分接近就誤以為這是答案,但記住 💪 ,答案是代詞前面而不是後面的名詞)

3. 在答題時,問題用 ‘does’,所以答案一般都是 ‘It refers to ...’

4. 由於有指定和在說上述的物件,所以應該把 ‘a carton of milk’ 轉成 ‘the carton of milk’

5. 得出答案: It refers to the carton of milk. / ‘It’ refers to the carton of milk.

溫馨提示:🙂
有人或會問,為什麼第二題的 ‘them’ 用了 ‘does’? 原因是因為所指的是這一個生字,即 What does (the word) ‘them’ refer to?
所以答案仍是 It refers to ... ,也可寫成 ‘Them’ refers to ... (此時 ‘Them’ 一定要用 quotation marks ‘ ‘ ,也不可寫成小楷 ‘them’)

Topic 82: 詞彙學習

學英文生字,其中一個方法就是通過填空格 (cloze)學習,那就可以知道同學們是否真的明白生字的意思。🙄

做練習的時候,可以先做有信心的題目,然後圈起已用過的生字,餘下的再慢慢推測。🤔 如果是家課,也應該先嘗試推敲答案,最後才查字典以覆核答案。否則,平日習慣了先寫下生字的解釋才做練習,到了測驗考試時,就可能會因「見個個生字都唔識」而發慌了。 😖

不妨用這個方法試試以下的練習吧! 😊
