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.                   …

Creative Method to teach a Reading Part ( " Nine or Ten")

Lesson: Nine or Ten
Class: 3rd
Language Skills: Reading, Speaking, and Creative Expression.

                  There are different teaching methods to teach reading part. Here I used the roleplay method to teach the reading of this lesson "Nine or Ten." Teaching in the same way and the same method may not give good results and not suitable for every content. So the teacher must attentive to method regarding the content. Create the English classroom environment is more important to acquire the language and involving the children in teaching is also important.
                   This was a known story of a foolish young man and donkeys, given as a reading card in a unit. I asked my children to roleplay the lesson while I am reading the story rather translate the story into their mother tongue. Children enacted well. They understood the lesson very well without translating the story into the mother tongue. I used only my children as a resource to act. This teaching method helped me to explain the phrases " he got onto the back, he mounted one donkey and he got down." without translating and helped me to create an English classroom environment. Here is the video, please watch.
