"The Pot of Wealth- An Innovative Learner Centered Story Transaction"

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. So in these situations, learning material will help the teachers to transact the story in an understandable way without switching into their mother tongue. Here is my another trail to transact a sto…

A strategy for developing "Reading Skills"

Grade: Primary and Slow Learners Language Skill: Reading.
Picture/Story Cards Method:                             My children are very poor in English and it was quite difficult to develop reading skills with them. They couldn't even understand simple stories without me translating into the mother tongue. So, to reduce the reading burden and help them understand, I prepared picture or story cards for every lesson. I turned each story into a picture story by preparing picture cards for every sentence in the story. The cards illustrated the contextual meaning of each sentence and key vocabulary, so if a story had 30 sentences, I prepared 30 pictures based on the keywords in each sentence. Then I began telling the stories using these pictures.
                           After two or three periods the students were able to recite the sentences while looking at the pictures. Once they were orally good, I added reading slips to the pictures. And next, I told the story using the pictures…

Innovative Spelling Activity

This a great and innovative spelling activity to learn spellings for primary children. I found this activity in Teachers Dilla's English Facebook page. I used this activity in my class and children enjoyed a lot. I can't believe this will make my work easy and interest.

Interactive speaking and written approaches using picture cards

Grade: 2 Language Skills Focused: Speaking, Reading and Writing.
             An interactive teaching material will always leads to great output in teaching. Children in early school days they love to learn in play way method. So as a teacher we should prepare such innovative or interactive TLM regarding the content.               I was very happy  to share my children responses because I didn't expect my learning strategies will lead to achieve such objectives.              I planned this lesson using some picture cards. I acted like these animals what they can do during the lesson. And asked my children to imitate like me. Once they were confident with oral responses I guided them to write on paper. I prepared a worksheet to colour and write about abilities of those animals.
