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.                   …

An Interactive writing task on Community Helpers


Topic: Community Helpers
Class: Primary
Skills: Writing, Reading, and Speaking.

                                A joyful classroom environment always leads to good learning even in a low resource classroom. Learner-centered teaching activities will give great results and can easily achieve multiple skills at a time. And moreover, students learn the language informally when they are engaged in such activities.


                          While teaching the lesson "COMMUNITY HELPERS" I planned the activity to target speaking and writing skills after teaching about the community helpers. Along with that, I engaged my children with a ball game to enact like washerman, potter, and tailor..etc., for a better understanding of the characters.
Activity:
                         In this game, students stand in a circle and pass the ball while music plays. The person who holds the ball at the time music stops, he comes to the middle of the circle and pick the card and enacts the character. The students stand outside of the circle should say the answer, like "he is a potter or this is a potter." After this activity, I conducted the below writing activity by providing the required material. I instructed my students to paste the images on the house chain and write a sentence using this "This is a washerman."
                   Later I divided my children into groups. I told them to practice in question and answer way like "Who is this?" " This is a doctor." The low-performance children only practice the sentences like " This is the police." They enjoyed a lot.
