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.                   …

Telugu Picture Reading Video Lesson PADAVA (పడవ)

Lesson: PADAVA (పడవ)
Subject: Telugu
Class: 1st Grade
Content: Introducing Basic Telugu Alphabets "PA (ప), DA (డ) and VA (వ)"
Language Skills and Objectives:
           Children are able to identify the letters PA (ప), DA (డ) and VA (వ).
           Children are able to read the words having these letters.
           Children are able to practice and trace the letters.
           Children are able to identify the words in a paragraph.
           Children are able to write the letters and words.

                         It is a great supporting reading video with the worksheets to teach especially low-performance children in the class. What I have observed in my children, results are amazing using these videos in my classroom and the technology stimulating their learning characteristics very well. The worksheets have created special attention to practice and tracing the Telugu alphabet among the children. I have developed these reading videos according to the Andhra Pradesh Govt 1st Grade Telugu Textbook. Integrating these reading videos with the textbook, results are very excellent. The learning standard and capacity of grasping the content is highly increasing in those low-performance children. And my special thanks to WWW.TELUGUBADI.NET website to design and provide these worksheets. For convenience, I have extracted and provided regarding lesson worksheets from AP Govt Telugu Text Book. Hope you use it for your classroom.

Transaction Process:

Start the session by singing the rhyme.
Give stress to the new words in the rhyme while singing.

Ask some interactive questions and elicit responses related to the new word.
Write the word on the board.
Ask them to identify the word in the rhyme and let them speak about that word in their own sentences.
Ask your children to read the letters in the word.
Ask them to say some other words which start with the known letters or related to the letters.
Introduce the new letter or letters with proper sound and stress.

Now play the video by putting in mute and ask them to read or identify the letters displaying on the screen.
Interact with the children to talk about the pictures in the video and elicit responses related to the words.
Now play the video once again with audio and listen to them.
Now ask your children to repeat the letters and words after the audio presentation.
Sufficient pause has maintained to repeat and say the word after the audio.
Once they practice the same for one or two times, ask your children to read the letters and words one by one while playing the video in mute.
Ensure that every child should read the words their own.
This type of picture reading gives chance to grasp the words quickly and memorize better.
Later ask your children to repeat those 4 words letter by letter, to check how much are they remember.

So Listening, Speaking and Reading has been done till now.
Now give the LETTER WORKSHEET to trace the alphabet.
Practice the writing in their workbook also.
Ask your children to write the words learned from the video their own.
Keep practicing the writing task and dictate the words to write.
Once they good at writing the alphabet, give the AP GOVT Textbook worksheet to enhance and practice the other words related to the alphabets.
