English Blog – English for Kerala Syllabus

To make reading and writing easy for beginners

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
mark, fan,
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.
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
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.
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

English Learning Materials for Beginners – Fourth Updation (Today)

      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.
