This Action Research was conducted in a Primary School in Paro, particularly for class IV ‘B’ in the English lesson. The main aim of this Action Research was to help students learn better with the integration of creative arts in the English lesson. The method used in this research is a qualitative approach blended with Kemmis & Mc Taggart’s and Maxwell’s model of action research . The observation tool such as (checklists, video recording, and field notes)are used for data collection. The checklist was used to assess the learning of students with and without the integration of creative arts in the English lesson. Video recording to review the lesson that has been taught so that we can interpret the data more effectively. On the other, field notes were used for comparing and analyzing the data that has been collected and as a reference while interpreting data collected. The three different strategies such as; using Readers Theater, Storyboard, and visual arts (flashcard) in teaching literature (short story, poem, and essay). The triangulation of three sources of data showed that the learning of students improve through the integration of creative arts. However, I saw some factors hindering the improvement such as structured curriculum, teaching pedagogy, time constraint, and learner’s social and family background.
