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.                   …

My Favourite English Teaching Method-Colleague Teaching Method


Many of us know about colleague. We arrange many pictures systematically to convey the total message of the picture or event. When I learnt about colleague craft teaching in British Council training, I am applying these method in my lessons whenever there is a chance.                      
                              I planed these colleague based teaching method in picture based interaction with my 4th and 5th  class children. I gave so many trainings using this method in cluster and district level.
                                  There is a lesson in fifth class THE WITTY NASIRUDDIN, I taught in this method. Especially the mother tongue influence children cannot grasp the words by watching entire picture. And its not interest to describe the picture by showing its whole. When I assessed my children after this method of teaching they wrote very well and learnt very fast. 

                                While teaching this lesson first I pasted below chart on the black board. I asked few questions about this this how it looks like. They answered, These are houses, Road and Street. Later I asked brain storming questions What will happen now? What do usually you see in a street?...etc. Later I pasted one picture on that chart and explain about that pic. Like I pasted all the pictures one by one while explaining the story and completed given the picture in the textbook.After my teaching I asked my children to write about this picture in their own words. They wrote well after one period of teaching. You can see my children worksheets below.
