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.                   …

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.
