Libre Tutdo May 2018
The first Libre Tutdo was held in May 2018 for four Saturdays, at Purok 5, Barangay Dagum, Calbayog City. The participants were children ages 5-10 and were divided into 2 groups based on their ages. By identifying the level and learning capacity of each child, the facilitators were helped greatly in designating tasks for this program.
For three days in May, the children were taught to do basic Mathematics -addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and Roman numerals. They were also taught basic English, like spelling, vocabulary improvement through synonyms and antonyms, speaking and reading comprehension through poetry reading and story-telling. On the fourth day, the children had the opportunity to showcase their talents through arts, dancing and singing. Additionally, they also had a chance to have fun with educational games facilitated by student volunteers.
At the end of the program, the children were recognized for their efforts to learn by giving them awards and additional school supplies.
Libre Tutdo is a great training ground for aspiring teachers and at the same time an outlet to create an environment where children can learn and have fun.
