A Constructive Activity to Teach "NAMES" for Primary Students

Topic: NAME Grade: Pre Primary and Primary Skills: Listening, Speaking, reading and Writing.                        This is one of my best activities to teach children's name and develop questioning to get his or her name. I did this activity in a part of my lesson to know how to spell and write their names of my children. I targeted the language function "Who is this boy or girl?" in order to get to know and write their friend's names along with his or her name.                                   I planned a speaking activity to drill the question "Who is this boy?" and answer "He is Ramcharan." by grouping three children in a group. In the three-member group, one student will ask the question by pointing a boy and another student says the answer. Along with that, I facilitated my students to identify the written from the question and answer by writing those on the blackboard in order to get the spellings. you can watch the below

The main aim of the activity is to learn the different forms of plurals in an easy and understandable way.                This activity gives a holistic diverse concept on plurals. It also helps children to remember the plural forms easily. You can also use this as a comprehension activity. I prepare this “S” worksheet with instructions to create interest and do the task easily.                Later I guided how to cut and paste on a paper. And then I told them that write the plurals of the words given on the board in the right section by reading the instructions of each section on “S”.  Finally, I asked them to read the words. I found this activity on "PINTEREST."                    Download the Worksheet

Topic: The Nation's Strength - Rhyme. Grade: Primary and Secondary. Skills: Listening, Reading and Writing..                              The main aim of the activity is to target the reading and writing skills by dictating the information to each other in order to get the complete text.                   This is one of the great activities to develop listening, reading and writing skills integratively. Mutual dictation will help the children to develop writing skills as well as reading very effectively.                    You need to choose a proper content to do this activity. You should prepare two parts (Part A and Part B) of the content which are having a different vocabulary of the same content. It means the words missing in Part A's worksheet should be there in Part B's worksheet. The "Partner A" should dictate the words to the "Partner B" and "Partner B" should fill the gaps without watching the "Partner A" works
