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.

Topic: Picture Interaction
Academic Standards: Speaking Reading, Writing and Creative Expression.

                        The picture takes a vital role in learning. So transacting a picture in the lesson is very essential to achieve or target the academic skills. Because a picture can lead to developing the multi-skills in the children. So the transaction of the picture should be important in learning. If we drag the children's attention towards the picture it will be a good session. In order to achieve those skills, the transaction method of a picture should be effective. So as a teacher you need to think over it.

Until and unless you are not giving good listening to them, language learning will not happen. So we need to follow the psychological order of language skills L, S, R and last W. So learning language in few schools has been hurry without of better understanding. That's why children are not responding to drawing interference questions.

Lesson: A Nation's Strength poem
Class: 4th Grade
Skills: Creative Expression and writing.

Objectives :    To understand the vocabulary  To use that vocabulary in those daily situations  To understand the people in the nation  To understand the moral and patriotic values of a citizen.                       We know very well every nation builds with people not with buildings. People are the nation. Some people work for the nation by doing a job in the Army, Navy, and Airforce. They are not working for their children and they scarify their lives to the nation. Through this poem I want to educate my children how are they working for their nation in the borders and who are the real citizens of a nation and what characters should we possess to be a good citizen.
