Simple, fun, and creative writing activities for 'nouns, plurals, pronouns, adjectives, and adverbs'

                  Young children are wonderful at absorbing a new language. They can get a maximum of language through games and activities that they find funny. Their success in learning a foreign language does not depend on their knowledge of grammar. As Pinter (2006) stated that children can use grammatical structures very well, they can speak language clearly, but they are not able to say why they use a particular structure. If teachers teach grammar, it is very important to do it in context.

1. NOUN SORT (COMMON and PROPER NOUN):
                            I have planned this simple activity after an explanation of the topic. I have prepared this worksheet to create interest and also for better understanding. The worksheet has four sections of 'person, place, thing, and animal. In every section, there have two blocks for 'common and proper noun.' So this gives a clear concept and supports them in writing and understanding.


2. SINGULAR - PLURAL:
               Vocabulary is the heart of language. Teaching vocabulary in a conceptual way is one of the big challenges in the primary stage. Moreover learning vocabulary in an isolated way won't help to develop good speaking and writing skills. Vocabulary should learn or teach in a structural, meaningful, and contextual way.
            Here are two simple and creative writing activities for getting fundamental rules of plurals.




3. PRONOUNS:
                   This is a fun and interesting craft activity to classify the 'pronouns' easily. I have planned this activity for getting a proper conceptual understanding. This activity also helps students to put ideas and concepts by applying some examples. Though it's a simple activity, it helps a lot in the primary stage.


4. ADJECTIVES:
                         When teachers use activities that make learning engaging and fun, students are more willing to participate and take risks. Having fun while learning also helps students retain information better because the process is enjoyable and memorable.
                  I have planned and taught this topic in 3 steps. In the first step, I have used some conceptual flashcards to get some describing words from the pictures. Later in the next step, I have planned a writing activity by playing a language game to describe his/her friend using those words without knowing the topic. Finally, I have given this activity to prepare puppets of my students after understanding the describing words and their usage. You can read the entire transaction of the 'adjectives' topic in the below link.



5. ADVERBS:
               I have taught this topic in a 'task-based activity.' I have connected this topic to a contextual story and taught it after the story. I have used the same story ards and started interacting. Later I have given a writing task and made them identify the adverbs. And then I have drawn some pictures on a board and connected their previous concept by explaining the conceptual meaning of the pictures in deep. Finally, I have given the below worksheet. You read the entire transaction in the below link.



                       Some creative and engaging worksheets, strategies, and methods drag our children's attention to understand the topic from basics and also help them to use the words in multiple contexts.
