Reading is a tool by which knowledge can be obtained. One must be able to read for him to be able to learn all other subjects. Hence reading should be given primary concern by each individual teacher.
Before teaching our child to read, we diagnose first the reading abilities of our pupils, using standardized oral reading test.
To arouse pupils interest to read, we use visual aids, like teachings the different letters, syllables and words with accompanying pictures. We also conducted spelling daily and phonetic drills before going to the reading proper.
Teaching reading with proper motivation is another way of arousing pupil’s interest to read. For our slow readers, we use to give them short and simple paragraphs usually based on their experiences printed on manila papers.
Our pupils are grouped according to their reading abilities or reading level. So far our fast readers are also given reading materials that are suited to their level, like books, magazines and stories that are read by higher grades, a sort of enrichment.
Having done these practices for the entire school year, our pupils have improved in their reading abilities. Our non-readers have greatly decreased in number. (Dormahal A. Alip – Master Teacher I, Sta. Barbara Central School)
