    To answer that would take a book.
    Try to narrow things down.

    Have you started teaching them already? If so, what have you tried, and what problems are you encountering?

    If you haven't started:

    How many will be in the group?
    How long will the lessons be, and how often?
    Is this intended as a serious class or something like a play-group?
    What facilities will you have?
    Have you any previous experience of teaching? of teaching English? of teaching children?

    Hello,
    We are catering to the age group(6-8) who even cannot read properly.
    The duration of the course is 1 year and we are looking for the methodology where in students can learn as well as enjoy the sessions.

    Regards,
    Rohini

    They can't read in English or their first language?

    Would it not make sense to at least do a young learners course before trying to design a year-long course for children? Look at the suggested reading for the CELTYL course too for some tips.
