Literacy workshop Wendy

It’s been a pleasant journey working with Wendy Buddin.

3 years in a row she has been facilitating our annual ECD teachers training on Literacy Development. This year the theme of the workshop was to train teachers on how to teach language through stories specifically Vocabulary & sentence structure. This was a continuation of her previous trainings on Phonics and methodologies of teaching literacy at early graders classes.

The teachers participating are from 10 different public Nursery schools within Kilifi County. In 4 of these schools Kesho is running a literacy programme whose objective is to assist struggling readers to improve their reading & comprehension skills.
