5 Effective Steps to Teach English for Kids

Step 1 : Letter Reading,that is,Teaching Alphabets to read and write.

Step 2 : Word Reading.Teach most commonly used words relating to a object or person or an animal.Show the objects,name them and then spell it them to your kids.

If your child is 4-5 years old,then he/she must be familiar with alphabets and some common words like this.
Eg : FAN,TAP,RAT,CAT,BOY,GIRL,COT,MAT,FAT,HAT,BAT,BALL,CAP,TALL.Phonics learning is a long process and don't expect your child to master over it in a short time.You introduce more words to them and the different sounds helps them to understand phonics gradually.

Step 3 : Your next step must be to make them read simple sentences.So what I suggest is to teach them the primary and very important (to be) verb conjugation.Teaching this conjugation will be a good start to your child for both reading and English speaking.

In young years,it is the visual learning which helps your kid to understand easily.Showing a ball,you can easily teach kids what it is and how to spell it.But it is not the case when you want to teach basic verbs like am,are,is etc.

We know pronouns are the beginners in the sentences and are followed by the verbs.Instead of teaching pronouns separately,I feel teaching them with verb make more sense.

If you teach this primary conjugation they will read verbs which are difficult to read alone together with pronouns.

By this,you can teach your kids the powerful words like "are" and "is" which are used to frame the sentence in English.

Reading and speaking both we must concentrate from young age.

Teaching "I" ends your child there itself.Teaching " I am" helps them to continue and think after that.

I feel this is the more structural way to learn as it helps in reading,writing and speaking English.

Show your kids with actions and teach them the following.Picture example is given for " I am".

I am 

With " I am" teach simple sentences

I am Yashika.
I am tall.

Additionally if you introduce them some adjectives  like thirsty,beautiful,kind.They learn to use it while speaking.

I am beautiful.
I am thirsty.

Don't teach such big words now for writing or reading.Just introduce them many words when you are speaking to them.

i am

You are
You are good .
You are smart.

Teaching basic action verbs like running,walking will be also more useful to them to start speaking.
He is

He is running.

She is

She is singing.

It is
It is hot.
It is cold.
It is a cot.
It is a ball.

We are 

We are friends.
We are students.

They are

They are elders.
They are teachers.

With this basic conjugation together with common verbs,adjectives and objects - your can help your kids to frame tonnes of sentences.

Step 4 : Show comic strips,picture stories and ask them to say what they can see in the picture.Ask them to say in their own words.In this way you can teach new words and make them to learn a lot visually.

Step 5 : Bilingual teaching helps a lot.Teach English with the help of your mother tongue it reaches their mind easily.Don't forget introduce more and more words to them while you speak as it increases their vocabulary.

Learning English in Chunks

Chunks are group of words which are used together.Learning chunks helps to frame the sentences easily and correctly.Knowing chunks of a language is a must for fluent speaking.

Eg : We will describe wind as " a strong wind " not as " a powerful wind ".

Although the words "Strong" and "powerful" conveys the same meaning,the word "strong" is used in common.Like this,the words which are commonly grouped and used together are called as chunks of a language.This type of linking words together is called collocation.

Eg :  Bread and Butter is a common collocation.We won't say butter and bread.

Compare to idioms and phrases,learning chunks greatly assists in speaking English more naturally and confidently.

When you know chunks of a language,you can frame the sentence with group of words and need not struggle to build the sentence word by word.
