4 practical ways and activities to improve writing skills.

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.                   …

Primary school English Graphic Reading Activity by First Class Children

Activity: Word Bricks Activity 
This is a great activity to develop graphic reading in primary school children especially in non native English children. This word brick activity read in American English website and i adapted to my classroom for my first class children to learn family members relationships.                                      
           To this activity after three days of my oral teaching I wrote all these words like father, mother, sister, brother....etc on small paper slips and i wrote each set of these these words for every children in my class. suppose if i have seven children in my class i prepared seven father slips, seven mother slips...like this. And then I placed all these word brick slips at the corner in my classroom. And i drew a tree on the floor ( you can see in picture) for each children. Later i instructed to my child you should collect that word which I said from that bunch and place in the family tree at a proper place. Who complete  the family tree first will be the winner. I was very even low proficiency children also done very well. (Source: American English Website)
