Speaking and writing task to teach MY FAMILY for young learners.

Grade: Pre-primary and primary
Skills focused: Speaking and writing.

              Teaching to young learners is a quite hard task for teachers. And moreover teaching English as a second or third language is very difficult for teachers. They have a lot of energy. Rather than trying to squash this energy, find positive ways to use it in the classroom. You want to create a safe, stress-free environment that everyone can enjoy learning in. And also it is important to make your lessons relaxed, fun and creative so that students get moving around and speaking with one another.

 So I have been trying to plan my lessons fun, interesting and creative. Here I have prepared an innovative model to teach and plan a speaking activity for my children. By using this model I have made them speak a few sentences about their family in order to only learn family members names (father, mother...etc.) I also use the same model for multi-grade children (level specific teaching) to speak and describe in different ways. So the model helped me to create an interesting environment and leaned the content in a fun and easy way. You can watch my children's presentation in the below video and also for level-specific description.

Writing task:
                    I have planned a fun writing task in the next period to comprehend their learning. I have prepared the below worksheet and word slips of family members. I am simultaneously teaching alphabets and the lesson my family. So the main objective of the writing task is to get my children to identify and write the first letter of the objects or things and recognize the graphic of the words father, mother, sister, and brother. So I have asked them to colour the pictures, write the alphabet and recognize and past the family member's word slip. 

               I hope you enjoy the lesson and use the model when you teach the topic. Thanks for reading.
