VERBS may express action, a state-of-being, or simply be defined by the helping role it plays to another main verb (which may be an action verb or a state-of-being verb). Both action verbs and state-of-being verbs may stand alone and be the main verb in a sentence. For example: (1). We are teaching you about main and helper verbs. ("are"-helping verb, "teaching"-main verb). (2). We are in Tower 2 of Suntec City. ("are" is now the main verb).
THERE are three families of verbs. These include action verbs, state-of-being verbs and helper verbs. Earlier, we touched on action verbs. In this part of the story on verbs, we introduce state-of-being verbs. These perform a vital role in clarifying the current state of an action.
TO help us understand better the impact of germs/microbes that exist in our environment and the diseases they cause, the Science Centre has developed a series of activities in July for young learners of science. Check these out during the period of 14-26 July.
MANY science learning opportunities abound in everyday life. The many "laboratories" include your garden, kitchen, weather, night sky and the playground. Young children by nature are curious and love exploring their world. So you can take advantage of this inherent sense of wonder about their surroundings to instill a love for science.
ZACH devised a way to mount two tricycles together so that he and his buddy Etienne could ride together. Zach sat at the back and took a joy ride while he quipped to the front rider, "I don't have to ride to move!" Now what would have pleased every science teacher is that Zach is just five. By doing what he did, he had demonstrated his curiosity which is a
vital prerequisite to the learning of science.
