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.                   …

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.
