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.                   …

Nice Activity on Modes of Transportation

Class: 4th
Lesson: Travelling 
Academic Standards: Reading, Speaking, Writing and Creative Expression.

          I thought it is a good activity to give an overall concept of transportation. Children were engaged very well and conceptual writing took place by this activity. It gave a clear knowledge of all types of vehicles which are not given in the lesson. Once I supplied the pictures of different types of vehicles, they pasted as per their medium on the chart. 
                             Once they pasted the pictures I asked them to write the names of the vehicles and write a sentence in which medium they travel. They wrote easily after I gave an example of how to write. The activity helped them to write a minimum of 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 through the sky.

                    And then I asked my children to read those sentences in pairs. Later I called them one by one and asked them to read what they wrote. So a simple activity gave an opportunity to target the four strands of language.

          I believe that activities will boost children's learning capacity. As a govt teacher, I am always searching for such great and simple activities. Such activities will help my remote and first-generation children to get the maximum subject skills, especially in English.
