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 Approach to Understand, Learn and Assess the ALPHABET better

Subject : Language - English
Class : PrePrimary and Ist Grade
Skill : Reading and Writing.

                   Children are not learning the language in our classrooms, they acquire the language. In order to learn the language skills you need to start with listening skill. 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.
                             Coming to writing part and also learning the alphabet, we should first concentrate on recognizing the letter. So, to recognize the letters we need to provide such environment, worksheets and activities to the early school children. Later we should concentrate on tracing the letters. And then matching the upper and lower case alphabet. And then recognizing or extract the letter (mostly first letter) from a picture and tracing. An then writing those alphabet in four rule papers. At last we can go for placing the wright alphabet in the spelling. So If you follow the strategy your children learning will change. See my assessment worksheets of my children to learn alphabet better.

1.Recognize the alphabet by colouring


2.Recognize and Tracing the alphabet on dotted lines



3.Matching the Lower and Upper Letters 


4.Identify first letter of a picture, find and trace the alphabet
