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.                   …

Transaction of the "Nation's Strength" poem

Subject: English
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. I educated my children by showing a video of the three forces, how the soldiers are working in the real field.
              I asked my children to read the poem at once and identify the difficult words in the poem. later I gave the meanings of the words and explained the contextual meaning. Now I asked them to write the rhyming words in the poem. In the next period, I gave a worksheet to fill in the blanks and write the rhyming words in the given table.
             Finally, I choreographed the poem. Later I have edited this video and showed it to my children how their choreography related to real. They enjoyed a lot. You can download the video and worksheet from the below links.
