Do you realize? It’s not easy to teach a Kid. Plenty of experience required. During you teach your kid sometime you need to behave like an adult (to generate fear) or sometime you need to act like a kid (to make them friendly). Generally Kids are with fluctuated memory & floating concentration. In this case proper processes & power motivation required to make them learn easier. English is one of the most wanted Global language. Today from the beginning chapter of education including mother tongue English is very common. Let’s talk about the dates when your Kid is in STD-I or STD-II. After watching their syllabus, do you got this question “Where to begin English for my Kid?“. If so read the below paragraphs. From my experience I can say, this English worksheets for Kids will help you to make your kid easy to Getting Started with English.
Introduction to English Alphabets
At the beginning lesson of English, kids need to go thorough “Introduction to English Alphabets“. First let them know the total number of alphabets. Then Start with Capital letters (A – Z). Before assign your Kid to write English Alphabets first let them guide to identify the letters. For this purpose you can use Kids educational videos or images. To make them easy to remember you can follow a song pattern for alphabets. Also during you introduce an alphabet give them an example. I mean while introducing “A” at the same end let them know “A for Apples”. Show them an image for Apple or use real one. This trick helps to keep them remember faster. Few of the common alphabets related sentences are like the below.
A for Apple | B for Ball | C for Cat | D for Dog | E for Egg | G for Girl | I for Ice-cream | J for Jack | K for Kangaroo | L for Leopard | M for Mango | N for Nest | O for Orange | P for Prince | Q for Queen | R for Rat | S for Sun | T for Television | U for Umbrella | V for Vehicle | W for Watch | X for Xerox | Y for Yellow | Z for Zebra
While presenting a statement related to an alphabet keep remember the objects you used in that statement must need to available easily. For an example “O for Oranges”. Here it can happen your kid will ask you “What is an Orange?” or “How it looks like?”. Off course in this place you can use images to clarify their queries but it’s much more better if you can use the real one. That’s why what ever the statement you use to identify the alphabets make sure the object you use there that need to available for our day-to-day use.
After Capital letters start with Small letters (a – z). When you kid is capable to identify alphabets guide them to write 5 letters a day. For an example in day one your kid can go for A, B, C, D, E & in the next day he/she can learn next 5 letters F, G, H, I, J. But as I told above kids memory is fluctuated memory in day two before going to write F, G, H, I, J letters tell your kid to first write the previous letters. This activity helps to bubble kids memory. The cause they never forget the past lessons.
Introduction to Vowels
Once your kid is capable to read & write English alphabets make them know about Vowels (A, E, I, O, U) & their uses. Unless this knowledge it is difficult for your kids to go further chapters of English. To make their understanding clear tell them how vowel helps during spelling & pronunciation. Here it was advisable to use mother tongue for examples.
Introduction to Number System
As you know number system never ends. To Getting Started with number system for your kids in phase-I go for 0 (Zero) to 10 (Ten). Similar like alphabets first let your kid identify the numbers by watching book. Once they able to identify successfully, guide them to start writing one-by-one. In Phase-II while your kid can capable to write alphabets from 0 to 10 teach them the same numbers in words (One, Two, Three, Four, Five, Six…). Continue this process for 10 to 15 days. Once your kid is well familiar with 0 to 10 then go for 11 to 20. For STD-I 0 to 20 is enough. Next in STD-II you can go for 20 to 50 or 100 depends upon your kids memory.
Introduction to Common used Colors
Colors are easily available to our day-to-day living. Once your Kid completed with alphabets & numbers go for Colors. In this section teach them only regular use Colors like RED, GREEN, YELLOW, WHITE, BLACK, BLUE, PINK etc. While teaching these colors tell them to identify colors of various objects around them.
Learn new words everyday
To improve English your kid need to improve his/her dictionary of word counts. Starting from the word Apple, Ball, Cat or Dog first make your kids to learn those words which are small (3 to 4 letters length) & can easily available to the day-to-day living. During they learn a word show the object in real-time. For an example during your kid learn the spelling of “Dog” on the next day show him/her a real dog. So that your kid will get an idea how a dog looks like.
English Grammar for Kids
While your Kid will in STD-II start teaching him/her basic English Grammars. As the first lesson make your kids know the use of I, we, he, she, they, him, her, his, my, our etc. Then in next phase let your kid know few easy & most used verbs like go, eat, drink, listen, play etc. After verbs tell your kids the use of are, am, were, is. To improve their practice start with small sentences like:
1. What is your Name?
2. How old are you?
3. What is your School name?
4. What is your Fathers name?
5. What is your Mothers name?
Keep touch with English
During you teach first lesson of English to your kid in your family tell your family members to communicate his/her in English. For example you can say “Please bring a glass of water for me.”, “Smile please”, “Let’s go for Study”, “Please Call your mom”, “Like to watch TV”, “This is a Potato”, “Do you like to eat vegetables?” etc. This activity improves your kids vocal power as well as attraction toward English.
