Story Telling; The Honest Princess

Every culture has its own folklore, which is shared as a means of entertainment, education, culture preservation or instillation of moral values. Stories give emotional glue that connects the audience to the message. Information presentation should be constructed around a story. Stories reshape knowledge into something meaningful. Stories are motivating. Stories make people care and transcend one’s current environment. All these make stories very important in the teaching/learning process. Let’s listen to these two stories.

Mastering the Alphabet 2; Sounds in words; Enabling Reading for Slow Learners

This publication aims to help pupils who, after passing through level one (Primary 1&2), reach levels two and three (Primary 3 – 6) without knowing how to read a simple text. They can give correct answers to oral questions but cannot read the questions themselves. This makes them fail their exams, not because they are dull. Some teachers also hurriedly teach the alphabet without taking into consideration some basic principles. This class of pupils is merely slow to understand and needs gradual guidance to the art of reading. This book answers to the difficulties faced by these pupils at all levels. Parents and teachers are advised to use this book for a better result in the performance of the Slow Learners. My grand-daughter in 4k (Nursery 2) can read so well as she follows lessons in Mastering the Alphabet books 1,2, and 3.
