A creative writing task on a city.

Image
Topic: About your city. Grade: 4th class. Skills: Writing.                Writing is a complex skill to develop and master, focusing on both the end product and the steps to arrive there. Writing skills only develop when young learners are taught how to write and are given opportunities to practice these skills and strategies.                So such visual worksheets help young learners a lot to develop writing skills. Such worksheets and engaging writing tasks are very important, especially for second language learners. I gave this writing task after a lesson "A trip to Horsley Hills" The theme of the lesson is sightseeing. So after this, I asked my learners to write about their city.  Here is the digital lesson transaction. A trip to Horsley Hills

Unit Transaction of Teaching Time

Image
Lesson: TIME Grade: 2nd Academic Standards: Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing. Subject: English                               I think it is one of my best unit transactions. Children were engaged in different speaking, writing activities and ended the unit with a language game. And a watch model helps me to drag the children's attention towards the class. I think it vibrates the learning characters of all type of learners.           I started my lesson using the model and asked so many questions and elicited the answers from my students.  1.

Once I supplied the pictures of different types of vehicles, they pasted on the chart. It gave a clear knowledge about all types of vehicles which are not given in the lesson.                               Once they pasted the pictures I asked them to write the names of the vehicles and medium where those travel. After I gave an example how to write the sentence. It was very easy to them to write 10 sentences about transportation.They wrote
The bus travels on the road. The train travels on the rails. The Submarine travels under the water. The Aeroplane travels trough the sky.
                    And then I asked my children to read those sentences in pairs. Later I called my children one by one and asked them …
