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.                   …

Running Race: A Comprehensive writing activity

Activity: Running Race
Competency : Reading and Writing
Class : 3 and above

                     This is an one of the good writing and reading activity. In this activity children can read, remember, recite and write the language content with great spirit.
                             In this activity first we have to identify some sentences from a passage, Rhyme or in a Grammar part, which we are going to learn or practice. Then you should write each sentence on a small paper slip. You can give 5 to 7 sentences in this activity. Later you should place these sentences at varanda or out side of the class.
Now you should group our students into pairs. In that pair one will be Reader and other one Writer. Like other pairs also should notify the Reader and Writer. Now teacher should give the instructions to all pairs, all readers should run out side the classroom, read and remember the sentence and rush to their partner who sat in the classroom and recite the sentence, then the writer should write the sentence with out any mistakes. Like all pairs should keep running until completion of the all sentences. So who does complete the first without any mistakes will be the winner.

So through this activity children can learn these sentence unconsciously. And also it gives chance to develop memory power and it remains for ever.
