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.

And such methods will stimulate the learning characteristics of every child.                               This was a famous story of a turtle and storks, who made a clever plan to take the turtle along with them. So to transact this story I prepared scene wise puppets and backgrounds to understand the lesson very easily. Once they visualize the story they can easily understand the difficult words and sentences. And also no need to switch into the mother tongue.                               As usual, I started the story by asking interactive questions and elicited the related vocabulary.
