A creative writing task on a city.

Topic: About your city. Grade: 4th class. Skills: Writing.                Writing is a complex skill to develop and master, focusing on both the end product and the steps to arrive there. Writing skills only develop when young learners are taught how to write and are given opportunities to practice these skills and strategies.                So such visual worksheets help young learners a lot to develop writing skills. Such worksheets and engaging writing tasks are very important, especially for second language learners. I gave this writing task after a lesson "A trip to Horsley Hills" The theme of the lesson is sightseeing. So after this, I asked my learners to write about their city.  Here is the digital lesson transaction. A trip to Horsley Hills

Lesson: Helen Keller. Class: 5th grade. Skills: Writing and creative expression.
                      Writing is one of the biggest challenges for teachers. Because children do not want to write. Especially in second language classrooms, teachers are facing big trouble in giving writing tasks. So teachers need to encourage their learners by assigning interesting writing activities. So I always try to give interesting and engaging writing tasks to stimulate them. They have been showing and participating actively when I give such creative tasks.  I gave this writing task after the completion of the lesson Helen Keller. It gave a diverse thinking and good understanding to my children.

"A strategy for Storytelling."

Topic: Storytelling Level: Pre-primary and primary.
                   Storytelling is different from Teaching a story. We just describe and explain the characters, situations, and events of the story in the teaching a story. Whereas we use storytelling as a strategy for learning as an input for learners. And it enables them, through experience, learn/acquire the language naturally.                    Stories keep children engaged and let them feel that they are also participating in the process of storytelling. If storytelling is made into an interesting experience and fun-filled activity where the listeners also participate in telling, guessing and manipulating.                   Here I am going to describe a strategy for storytelling for an interesting transaction. Every story has three major parts, "beginning, middle and ending." The middle part is the peak and turning point a story. So the middle part has a problem or suspense. So in the storytelling, we need to start …
