MLE Teachers Training at Valenzuela City

Here are some shots taken from the 10 day teachers training at Valenzuela City last May 4-15. It was attended by more than 40 grade one teachers and MLE facilitators.
Most of the photos were taken during graduation ceremony when they displayed the big books they made out of stories they conceptualized about the people and places of Valenzuela City.

Facilitating the training were MLE resource people from Lubuagan DepEd, SIL, TAP, and UP. The program was funded by Cong. Magtanggol Gunigundo, the author of the MLE Bill. Five schools in Valenzuela City were chosen to be the pilot schools for MLE. They are Serrano Elementary School, Lingunan Elementary School, Silvestre Elementary School, Paso de Blas Elementary School, and Mapulang Lupa Elementary School. Representatives from each participating school were chosen to make up the MLE technical group.

The first project they accomplished was adjusting the first 8 week (ECCD) curriculum. Instead of nursery rhymes like "Little Miss Muffet," they chose songs with words and tunes that are familiar to their pupils.
