Best Teaching Strategies for Primary Classes

  • 03/08/2019

Teaching can be a challenging task. Teachers have to adopt different strategies to tackle the students. Every primary class student has a different capability to learn. Some can grasp quickly while some find it difficult to understand. Teachers should frequently try to innovate their teaching strategies to make the lessons and classroom experience more enchanting and curious.


Here are a few teaching strategies for primary classes:


1) Digital Learning

Digital Technology is up-to-the-minute. There is a hype of digital fusion everywhere. Teachers can integrate digital media technologies to enhance learning. They can use projectors to display images and videos by linking it to the internet.

This can help the students to visualize the concepts efficiently. They can have an interactive session over the internet, discussions across the boundaries via video calls, master-class and particular opinions to help them engage during the lessons. Apart from this, teachers can use tablets to display results, track reports.

They can mail assignments, reports to the parents and students directly, making it more transparent.


2) Brainstorming

Teachers can conduct brainstorming sessions. They can conduct meet-ups for playful, creative games and visual exercises to grab their interest.

Students tend to learn more practically, than theoretically. They can learn more about educational field trips. This can excite students to know more about their creative abilities.


3) Realistic Approach

Discuss real-life experiences in the classroom. People can relate to real experiences quickly in comparison to the imaginary ones. Students are stepping into a realistic world so having a class conversation about real-life situations can give them an insight about the world. Students get more excited as they can relate with real-life situations.






4) Create a Dramatic Approach

Try to teach the students in a story form. Students can do role-playing.

Students can be the character they like. This will develop their interpersonal skills.

Students from any age group can learn through this method.

Teachers can also adopt the strategy of storyboarding to help the students in memorizing and visually stimulate conceptual ideas. Storyboarding is communicating via images. It is a breakdown of scenes in the form of images.

Students can imagine events throughout a story.


5) Make teams

Children love to be with their friends. If there is a study group in the class, the kids will study in a playful manner. They will learn more and enjoy the process.


6) Ask the students

 Teachers can only excel when students can outshine. They should appreciate the suggestions and try to implement them. Teachers should evaluate themselves and be broad-minded towards new ideas.


7) Innovate

 Make them learn through poetries and altering the class environment.

You can also use infographics, filmstrips, slideshows, presentations, etc. to stimulate students’ mind. It is necessary to alter the classroom environment because the students are supposed to sit and learn all day.

Install chapter related posters, puzzles, and games around the walls of the classroom. Students can take a break and can stroll around to invigorate themselves. This would also educate them indirectly.





In all, try to be a friend to the children and don’t be too strict. Primary class students are very young and it is the best time to shape up their minds. Be as creative as you can and always be patient while making them understand something.

Don’t forget to list your primary schools on Millioncenters to boost the visibility for parents and their kids.
