To make reading and writing easy for beginners

To make reading and writing easy for beginners
→ Start with 3 letter words - rhyming words are more preferred.
Eg. cat, rat, pat , pot, cot, lot etc.

→ Give an idea about vowels and how they help in changing sounds like “a” is used as “aa” in Malayalam, “e” is used for “ottappulli”, and so on for all vowels.

→ Give several examples, display them in charts. Highlight the vowels with different colours.
Part, mark, fan,
Set, bed, pen
Charts like this should be prepared for all vowels.

→ After giving lot of reading and writing practices, ask them to find such words in their text books or news papers or comics, and let them note it down.

→ Write small stories and sentences for these children and give reading practices.

To make them speak
→ Teacher should talk very simple sentence frequently, not only in English periods, but in other periods too, when the situation is suitable.

Eg: How are you? Shall we start, let’s sing, I am tired, who is absent etc.

→ Talk about favourite things.

Eg: I like paayasam. It is very sweet.
My mother gave me a blue dress. It has pink buttons.
Ravi likes bike. He rides very fast.
I went to the beach. I played in the water.

→ After giving such examples, ask them to speak about their favourite things. Teacher should boost their confidence by giving scaffolding and encouragements like claps. They may not speak initially, then ask them to write down their ideas and read.

To make them write
→ Start with small sentences. Here too teacher’s version is used first.

Show them some object and describe it.
Eg: This is a small flower. This is red in colour. It has five petals.

Ask a student to stand and describe him/her.
This is Sonu. He is a tall boy. He is wearing black sandals.

This kind of practices will show some result within 2 months. Teacher should be very patient. Can’t expect a leap in a short time. 

All the best

      I am a Primary School Teacher from Palakkad. Even our 10th standard students find it difficult to frame a meaningful sentence, neither are they confident to express their ideas in English.
    I wish our primary teachers try to make students familiar with simple sentence formation. This will boost their confidence in writing about simple topics like tree, food, pond etc. I hope this attempt will strengthen the foundation and the student will be able to communicate well in English by the time he finishes 10th.
     I am a part of English Blog by contributing learning materials for primary classes. Instead of focusing more on textbooks, I wish to encourage children in writing about familiar topics in their own simple sentences. These are some samples. Please go through them and feel free to express your opinion. I wish more teachers from LP school join English Blog and share.
