How to Make Low Cost Teaching Materials and Classroom Instruction for Teachers

Teaching in classroom with low cost material
The packets of Energy Plus biscuits, Lifebuoy soap, Bombay Sweets potato crackers, Ruchi chanachur, Nutty biscuits and Maggi noodles have been chosen for making low resource material. At the same time, two calendar pages, one scotch tape, one scissor, crayon colour and some stapler pins will be needed to make the whole things. These all things are available in the hill tracks area of Bangladesh. The prize of the scotch tape is five taka and a scissor is ten taka. Teacher can easily collect the packets and other things or can ask students to collect the packets. The packets will be used to make different things such as bag, tree, car, boat, dress, cup, and kite. At first, the packets will be cut by scissor for making the expected shapes. After that, the two pages of the calendar will be stapled so that the white sides of the pages are seen from the both sides. Then, all the shapes will be pasted on the one side of the stapled calendar with the scotch tape, and the names of those shapes will be written down by the black crayon colour below the shapes.


This low resource material is related to the textbook English For Today of class two (Unit 16: Colours, Lesson: 4-6, Section: A). In Unit 16, lessons 4-6 are all about seven colours (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet) which are enlisted in the book to teach the students about colours by presenting rainbow. The low resource material is related to the lessons which will help the students to learn the names of different colours, and it will make the lesson easier to learn.


English for Today textbook of class two

In the classroom, the teacher will tell the students that they are going to learn about the colours. Then, the teacher will show them the material and teach them the names of seven colours. Moreover, the material will be displayed in the classroom in two more places as the class size is large which will help the students to see the material clearly. First, the teacher will say the names of colours by mentioning the shapes from the material, and ask the students to repeat the names. Students will orally practice the names of seven colours, and they will become familiar with the colours by their names. Then, the teacher will ask the students to look at the lesson on their textbook from where they will also learn the names of seven colours. After that, the teacher will mention one specific shape from the low resource material, and ask the students to say the colour name of that shape. At the same time, the teacher will ask some students individually about the colour names of the shapes, and they will be chosen randomly for the questions. The teacher will also repeat the colour name of the shape after student’s reply which will help the students to understand the sound and exact colour of the shape.
