Topic: The Pot of Wealth Class: 4th Skills: Reading and speaking.
                          This is one of my best story transaction methods and also a learner-centered teaching strategy. I strongly believe that teaching-learning material will always give twin benefits to teachers and students to transact and understand a topic well. Innovation in the learning material is an added advantage to a teacher to stick their student's concentration and achieving the targeted standards easily. And also it changes your monotonous teaching strategy into a versatile transaction.                             The main hurdle in establishing English environment in the second language classrooms is, teachers are not proficient to simplify a story and transact for 40- 45 mints continuously in English.

English Primary Vocabulary Game: Where is the.....................?



Where is the......? It is a vocabulary game to introduce the difficult vocabulary words. I read this game in Teaching Ideas Website and implemented in my classroom. I adopted this game to teach and introduce new vocabulary in EKALAVYA lesson. My 5th class  students enjoyed a lot and they learnt very fast. 
                   In this game first I selected few vocabulary words related to characteristics of Ekalavya. I wrote these words on teacups. And we need a object or specimen of Ekalavya. I used a plastic doll as a Ekalavya. Then I placed all the cups like shown in the picture. And also I placed the Ekalavya Specimen under a cup without showing my children. Then I grouped my children into two. Now one volunteer from a group should come to the table, ask their group members the question " Where is the Ekalavya?" His group members should guess, where was the Ekalavya and say the phrase " UNDER KIND". or " UNDER HUMBLE." ...like. Then the volunteer lift the teacup and check whether the object is there or not. If their guessing is correct they will get mark. Like we continue the game with other groups..
                 It is a great interesting game to the children to learn vocabulary and prepositions.
