The results obtained from the formative stage of the pedagogical experiment in the experimental group (EG) show that a mean value of a low level of future primary school teachers' readiness to develop constructive skills in younger pupils has decreased by 30.6%; a mean value of a sufficient level has increased by 14.9%; a mean value of a high level has decreased by 15.6%. At the same time, the corresponding values in the control group (CG) have not changed significantly. The results of the experimental work prove the expediency of introducing the author's model in the training of future primary school teachers.
