Knowledge Channel reinforces skills of first grade teachers in teaching reading through its first mentorship session.

Part of Knowledge Channel Foundation’s (KCFI) advocacy is to help Filipino primary grade students become independent learners, confident problem solvers, and critical thinkers by the end of Grade 3 through Basa Bilang, a multi-year project piloted in 18 Sta. Rosa Elementary Schools. 59 teachers were trained on early reading last August and on September 21, a follow-up mentorship session was held to further assist them in their instruction and strategies.

The seminar and training discussed how to effectively apply integrated literacy in their classes using children’s literature, review of early literacy concepts using the plan, revision of lesson plans succeeded with application. A collection of storybooks featured in the animation series Wikaharian were also turned over to the schools thanks to the generous donation of Eridanus Marketing Corporation, COV Med Supplies and Equipment, RWINS General Merchandise, and AKRIZ Printing Press.
