Sun.Star Pampanga - - PERSPECTIVE! - CE­CIL T. GAMBOA

DepEd or­der no. 12 s.2015, Guidelines on the Early Lan­guage, Lit­er­acy and Numer­acy Pro­gram: Pro­fes­sional Devel­op­ment Com­po­nent stated the Pres­i­dent’s Ten Point Ba­sic Ed­u­ca­tion agenda which says that, ev­ery child should be a reader. The Depart­ment of Ed­u­ca­tion strength­en­ing its pro­gram through the im­ple­men­ta­tion of the Early Lan­guage, Lit­er­acy and Numer­acy Pro­gram that will guide the learner’s to de­velop lit­er­acy skills which will con­trib­ute to lifelong learn­ing. Read­ing is one of the most im­por­tant weapons in learn­ing. It is a fun­da­men­tal part of hu­man’s life. Learn­ing to read does not hap­pen in one click to mas­ter a child on how to read but it hap­pens through a step by step process. Chil­dren are unique each and ev­ery one of them has the abil­ity to learn on their own, whether in a fast or very slow pace in read­ing.

As a kinder­garten teacher it is very chal­leng­ing for me to teach a child with Zero knowl­edge. En­ter­ing a child in my class­room with­out know­ing the let­ter name, let­ter sounds, and numer­als that is why as a teacher I have a big role to the life of a child a mas­sive task is en­trusted to me that a child is ex­pected to learn how to read with com­pre­hen­sion. With the help of Alpabasa Read­ing Pro­gram, learn­ing is now easy and fun to my pupils to mas­ter the read­ing skills through teach­ing first the sounds of the al­pha­bet. It can em­power and en­er­gize my pupils as well as a teacher to learn to read with enthusiasm and ex­cite­ment. It’s a game-based teach­ing that uses flash­cards, ma­nip­u­la­tive ma­te­ri­als, pic­tures, etc. and it in­cor­po­rates mu­sic move­ments that easy to mas­ter the sounds. Chil­dren learn how to read, write, speak and lis­ten in a way that will al­low them to com­mu­ni­cate ef­fec­tively to va­ri­ety of dif­fer­ent au­di­ences and to make sense of the world.

Read­ing and writ­ing when in­te­grated with speak­ing, lis­ten­ing and view­ing, crit­i­cal think­ing could even­tu­ally de­velop, that will lead to con­sti­tute val­ued as­pects of lit­er­acy in mod­ern life. Through this, it is ex­pected that the chil­dren can gain fun­da­men­tal skills nec­es­sary to achieve suc­cess as they grow since lit­er­acy is a re­quired skill that is manda­tory in ev­ery task.
