Improving writing skills to primary children is the biggest challenge for teachers. Especially the students who are learning English as a second language are getting much trouble to improve writing skills. Here I am discussing some practical tips and activities which I have been using in my classroom to my young learners. 

                       We know very well, writing is the utmost skill. It means it's a hard skill for primary children. And in the LSRW, listening leads to speaking and reading leads to writing. So a student wants to speak he should listen well as well as he wants to write he should read well. So we should concentrate on reading to get good writing skills. But most of the teachers are not following the psychological order of language skills. So you want to develop writing skills first concentrate on speaking and reading skills. So you need to give such speaking and reading activities in order to get good writing skills.                   …

Creative primary English writing activity. (SPIN IT ..ANSWER IT) .. " What is that?"



Writing from words to sentences is some what difficult. Learning vocabulary should leads to write phrases. In my previous post " Spin it, Read it, Colour it," I prepared a activity circle chart and used for identify the vocabulary only. And that was the starting unit in our textbook. Now in this unit I prepared same type of activity circle chart with different language words which are there in that unit.
While teaching this unit or language task I asked my children "What is that? "They gave answer in a word like Bank, hospital...etc. At that time I taught my children to say the answer for this question like  "It is a Bank." " It is a hospital." I wrote these question and answers on the balckboard and made my children to identify the each word in that. I planned an oral activity to say this answer about other things like " It is a pen.". You can see the video of this activity in my previous post "Oral discourse of a language task "What is that?"". After learnt the spellings of all these words I gave above own made work sheets and that chart. Now I instruct my children to spin the chart and write the answers until complete the worksheet. They done it very well and enjoyed a lot.
