Reading to Learn

Mary Mcleod Bethune once remarked, “The whole world opened to me when I learned to read,” And it is indeed true. Reading is an effective way to discover what the world has to offer. With this in mind, Mission Ministries Philippines (MMP) and Action for the Care & Development of the Poor in the Philippines, Inc. (ACAP) joined forces again in training their childcare volunteers to teach how to read.

The seminar was held last March 30, 2023, at the ACAP office in Paranaque. It was attended by 30 of its volunteers.

The speakers, Dr. Chonabelle Domingo, President and CEO of MMP, and Ms. Erlyn B. Isidro, facilitated this whole-day event.

Apart from the importance of reading, the process of reading, stages of writing, and lesson planning, the speakers also tackled the Marungko approach, a technology MMP has adopted to teach children how to read in Filipino. Based on MMP’s experience, children can read in just one month by using this approach through its book BIP BIP or Bilis sa Pagbasa ng Batang Isip-Pinoy.

A workshop was also done for the application of what they learned. The volunteers were able to develop stories and activities that they could use.
