Learn to read and write


Project Description

18th July 2016 Muutos For Kids partnered with Word Alive Ministry International to organize a one month learn to read and write a program to teach children from 5 to 15years how to read and write.
This programme had as target 50 children but at the end of the first week, we had an attendance of 60 children and at the end of the program, we had 80 children come for the program. The program was in the Word alive Ministry International Church auditorium so we were afraid that non-Christian families will not send their children but we were surprised that we had 15 Muslim children come for the program which made us fulfilled and happy.
In this program we started with phonetic awareness where the children learned letter names and sounds then we further taught them how to blend those sounds to be able to read words.
The reading journey stated from reading two-letter words like as, at and a from there we went to three letter words like cat, mat, sat, fat etc and children read a story made up of three letter words and at the end of the 4th week children were able to read 6 letter words like bucket, millet, piglet, etc
The program ended with amazing results recorded.
