    Learning vocabulary that is related to community, their lives, and real world events helps children better understand the vocabulary terms. By learning vocabulary related to community, children can understand the concepts and terms associated with their immediate surroundings and the people they interact with. Learning vocabulary related to their lives helps children connect the new words to their personal experiences, making it easier for them to comprehend and remember. Additionally, learning vocabulary related to real world events helps children understand current affairs, cultural references, and the broader context in which the words are used.

    Correct Answer
    A. Separate them and sound them out
    Explanation
    When dealing with large vocabulary, children often use the skill of separating words into individual sounds and sounding them out to understand their meanings. This strategy helps them break down unfamiliar words into smaller, more manageable parts, allowing them to decode and comprehend the word's meaning. By segmenting words into syllables and pronouncing each sound, children can make connections between the sounds they hear and the letters they see, aiding in their overall word recognition and comprehension skills.

      Reading and writing fluency

    • D.

      Age

    Correct Answer
    D. Age
    Explanation
    The length of sentences that children write depends on their age. As children grow older, their language skills and cognitive abilities develop, allowing them to construct longer and more complex sentences. Younger children typically write shorter sentences, while older children are capable of writing longer and more sophisticated sentences. Therefore, age plays a significant role in the grammatical development of children.

      Receptive vocabulary

    Correct Answer
    A. Speech sound perception
    Explanation
    When children have trouble putting events in order, it suggests that they may have difficulty perceiving speech sounds accurately. This can affect their ability to understand and process language, as they may struggle to distinguish between different sounds and therefore have trouble organizing events in a coherent sequence. Grammatical development, language comprehension, and receptive vocabulary are all important aspects of language development, but they are not specifically related to the challenge of putting events in order.

    Explanation
    Metalinguistic awareness refers to a child's ability to think about and reflect on language itself. It involves understanding and manipulating language at a higher level, such as recognizing and discussing the sounds, grammar, and meaning of words. Receptive vocabulary, on the other hand, refers to a child's ability to understand and comprehend words and their meanings. While both concepts involve language, metalinguistic awareness focuses more on the awareness and analysis of language, while receptive vocabulary focuses on understanding and comprehending words.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Has the ability to listen or read language and be able to know what it means.
    Explanation
    Metalinguistic awareness refers to a child's ability to understand and interpret language. This includes the ability to listen or read language and comprehend its meaning. It goes beyond simply understanding when someone is speaking to them and involves a deeper understanding of the language itself. This awareness allows the child to make connections between words, sentences, and their meanings, enhancing their overall language skills.

    Rate this question:

  • 11.

      Content; Funtion

    Correct Answer
    D. Content; Funtion
    Explanation
    Students of this age are able to understand content words, but can't understand function words. Content words are words that carry meaning and refer to objects, actions, or concepts, such as nouns, verbs, and adjectives. Function words, on the other hand, are words that serve a grammatical function, such as articles, prepositions, and pronouns. At this age, students have developed a basic understanding of the meaning of words and can comprehend content words, but they may struggle with the more abstract and grammatical nature of function words.
