Little learners learning language with story writing

Little learners learning language with story writing

Many a times students struggle to express their thoughts  in writing. Sometimes they struggle due to lack of vocabulary but many a times they may have words but cannot put them in order. So, it is important for students to recognize sentence structure in order to express their ideas.

Students  played a language game .The objective of the game was vocabulary building  and develop sentence forming with proper sentence structure using random words made and inserting different parts of speech as required .

Students were given 5 to 6  alphabets/letters and they  had to form  words from them. Then they had to make meaningful sentences using those words. They wrote the sentences in their notebook. Initially students found it difficult to form sentences using limited words but gradually they started enjoying and made 3 to 4 sentences.

After that , Students made sentences with the given strips of random words. Each strip had six random words. Each student had a strip of random words. Each child had to make two sentences using at least 3-4 words.

It was followed by writing short stories in next session .The teacher revised the elements of a story with them. After this story writing game was explained to them. Teacher displayed the laminated sheet of the story elements. A laminated sheet  with elements of a story  written on it was given to students. The sheet had   “Roll a character”, “Roll a setting”and “Roll a problem”. Students had to roll a dice every time to choose a  setting, a character and a problem .They had to  then imagine and make their own story. Initially they struggled with the task but with their continuous efforts they made creative  stories which was appreciable.

Highlights and homework – Day 4 – March 16th

PYP Ex : Learners derived the central idea for PYP Exhibition. They discussed the key take away from the article they read yesterday and based on that, they came up with words like understanding, appreciating, cultural heritage, past, present, future, help us develop, make informed choice, etc. Learners, then in their group, framed the central idea using these words. More or less, each group’s central idea was on the same note. We also discussed the difference between understanding culture and appreciating culture. Finally, the central idea “Understanding our past culture helps us to make informed choice in present and shape our future.” was revealed, which was similar to their individual attempt.

 
To understand the central idea further, they attempted the engagement where in they explored several beliefs, rituals, traditions and art forms which are part of our cultural heritage. They discussed in the group about making informed choice to continue or discontinue these beliefs, rituals, traditions and art forms.
They were then tuned in to their trips by the respective teacher in charge. PYP Ex : Learners derived the central idea for PYP Exhibition.
