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.                   …

Alphabets Identify Activity- Read the card, Identify the Letter and Trace




This is another graphic reading activity and leads to writing by identify the first letter of that word while reading the picture. Learning alphabets and sounds while reading a word. In graphic reading children should able to read the word without knowing the alphabet. I think it is the good because as a mother tongue they learn words before learnt the alphabets in English language. I am following this graphic reading method for teaching first class children. In this lesson MY FAMILY after days teaching I prepared picture cards of family members and letter tracing worksheets.          
                                          While teaching these words I wrote entire words on the blackboard and every time I asked my children to identify the first letter, sounds the letter and ask my children to notice the letter in other words. Later I asked my children to say the word while showing the picture. After drilling like this I gave worksheets to my children. Ask my children sit in a circle and place all the family members picture cards in the middle. Instruct my children to take one card read the word and identify the letter and trace the letters. It gave good results in my classroom and children learnt very fast and remember the letters and words forever.
