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

Image
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…

An Innovative Speaking Tool - MY SCHOOL

Class: 2nd. Lesson: MY SCHOOL. Language Skills: Speaking.                          We know very well listening is more important in learning a language. In order to develop the rest of the language skills, we need to give much listening input to children, especially for second language learners. So such material will help teachers to speak about the content though they haven't good professional skills. And also create good English environment in the classroom. As the teachers, we need to concentrate on to engage the children in such activities and use some interactive learning materials to speak and write more.                        I prepared this speaking tool based on activity in our textbook to create some curiosity among children. I started the lesson "My School" by showing the model. I asked some interactive question based on their knowledge. I showed the model and explained the places in a school. And then I gave the below description. "This is our school. …

An Innovative Table Activity

Class : 2
Topic : Introducing Tables.
Lesson : Multiplication.

            I am very thankful to TEACHING IDEAS face book page sharing these great classroom ideas. My 2nd grade children enjoyed a lot during this activity. Innovative teaching always leads to great output and can stimulate the children learning characteristics. If you ask your children to write the 2nd table in a book they will not show interest to write. But if you do these type of activities children's learning definitely amazing. It needs only planning and preparation.
                   Here's a small activity I assigned to my children by supplying empty watches and asked them to write 2's table and prepare a watch like this. Even low proficiency children also done along with the A grade children.








MY SCHOOL RHYME

Class: 2 Lesson: MY SCHOOL RHYME Language Skills: Speaking, Writing and Creative Expression.
                         Children always enjoy the class when you make it joyful. And they enjoy the rhymes very well. In this rhyme, some action words sing, write and read and few adverbs loudly, neatly and joyfully are there. So teaching rhyme is not meant for the joy of children. We should concentrate on those language functions which they can use in real life situations. While teaching this rhyme I explained and made exercise to use those functions effectively. Here you can see my children how they were enjoying while singing the rhyme. Later I gave a small writing task with a craft activity. I asked my children to write "why do you love the school?" For this question, I supplied heart shapes to my children and asked them to write their reasons to love the school on it and paste in the answer paper in a flower shape. They did very well.

Crafty Writing Activity

Topic: Why do you love trees? Class: 4 Language Skills: Creative expression and writing.
               We can target multiple language skills through a writing task. Today I asked my children to write about trees, "how do trees helpful to humans? and "Why do you love trees?" I explained the advantages of trees in the lesson GREEN IS LIFE to my children. Later I drag their attention to concentrate on the importance of trees, that's why we should care for the trees. Later I guided my children to write the advantages through a craft activity. Finally, they created a lovely garden.
