Topic: The Pot of Wealth Class: 4th Skills: Reading and speaking.
                          This is one of my best story transaction methods and also a learner-centered teaching strategy. I strongly believe that teaching-learning material will always give twin benefits to teachers and students to transact and understand a topic well. Innovation in the learning material is an added advantage to a teacher to stick their student's concentration and achieving the targeted standards easily. And also it changes your monotonous teaching strategy into a versatile transaction.                             The main hurdle in establishing English environment in the second language classrooms is, teachers are not proficient to simplify a story and transact for 40- 45 mints continuously in English.

Topic: Adjectives Class: 3rd Grade Skills: Speaking, Writing, Grammar, and Creative Expression.
Here I am going to describe how I taught an adjective topic to my 3rd class students in an activity based. I started my period by asking my students to say some words that we use to describe a person or thing. They gave some examples in their mother tongue, I megaphoned them into English, wrote on the board and also added some other words. I explained the meaning of the words and made them read well. After a small interaction by giving some example sentences using the words, I told them we are going to play a language game.
Language Game: "Snow Ball Fighting"                It is one of the well-known language games to develop creative writing skills. I have used this game to stimulate my students to write about his/her friend using those adjectives during the transaction.
How to play: Give a white paper to each and ask them to write their name on the top of the paper. Tell your student…
