Hi fellow mentors!I come late but better than never.It is for a good collaboration among us that I come back on the tcop.Thx a lot to all of u for your contributions especially to mentor Karake who helped me.continue working as a team - about today's topic,collaboration is still important to promote EGR ,between mentors and teacher ,supporting regurally concerned lea ners organizing competitions of reading can give good results .
Thanks so much, this EGR 'help us to achieve at high level in teaching learning process, as mentors we immitate what we gained from EGR ten we help our fellow teacher acomplish well their tasks. this help our learn to have reading skills and easy to learn other languages.
Good, at my school we have a reading day and we take one last hour of wednesday twice per month and we ask student to read something and then they report by writing the book title, author, publisher and the brief summary of what they got there. in primary level we encourage teachers to read stories to the students and give them time to read by their own. and we motivate those who are trying to read step by step. i used to invite a teacher from primary to come and we work together during E-COURSE works sothat he/she may also get those knowledge and skills to help and enhance the reading culture. thanks
To help our young children to read , we can give them small stories books and initiate them to read.
I thank my fellow mentors as JEROME ,THEONESTE ,ALEXIS ,BIHOYIKI and others who have contibuted to this session by giving advise on how to promote EGR especially at our schools.Surely,reading is the key of knowledge ,so its our task to emphasise on it .Thank you very much.
yeah in my school i had helped teacher to promote EGR by creating
text with pictures

THANK YOU REB TEAM
This topic is very interesting and constructive for us.As teacher mentor I help my colleagues how to teach reading in that age.
In the last term,I gave the model lesson in p3.I distributed books with students we read it and discuss.That book is where is Claudine.
hello dear mentors.i am encouraging you to promote reading skills to our learners in our schools.so let's start now make our learners able to read.
MENTORS ARE THERE TO SUPPORT IN ALL LEVELS OF STUDY:
LOWER SECONDARY AND
TO HELP THEM TEACHING WELL IN A GOOD CONDITION OF GETTING T/L MATERIALS AND HELP THEM FINDING RESOURCE.
We should boost the literacy all together from all levels.
thank you we are together
To promoting literacy in Early Grade Reading is a good practice the challenges are number of pupils in a class and double vacation.
Good evening dear Mentors, EGR Students, REB staff and TCOP members. This topic is very interesting for us, that why we are happy to give our opinions. First of all, we can appreciate those who thought to establish Children Early Grade Reading, for it is the best way and foundation of quality Education.
What we do as Mentors to support Early Grade Reading, is to help our Colleague Teachers to understand how well teaching reading and writing in our mother tongue and other languages is a TUBE /CHANNEL in which all studies /Skills pass through. We try also to show them how teaching reading and writing properly will facilitate us to reach on our objectives (Success) and to overcome our (IMIHIGO).
As, a Mentor who is supposed to help my Colleague Teacher and Mentors, I want to say what I started to do for Supporting Early Grade Reading in our school. Last Tuesday, I trained my Colleague teachers about Supporting Children Early Grade Reading.
What I did to help them are the following : a) I showed them how the school Leaders, teachers and parents can help each other in order to help learners to know how to read and write. b) I showed the teachers also how they will use the rich materials and let the students to manipulate them.
c) I showed the teachers again how to make the READING CORNERS (INGUNI Z'AMASOMERO) in the classrooms. And show them how they are very important. If I was trained enough about EGR, I could teach them too much about Supporting Children Early Grade Reading because It was a very interesting point. All Teachers enjoyed my training. It is:NSENGIYUMVA VINCENT.
Vicent some mentors try to support EGR ,others have a full timetable which is a barrier to achieve their goals.Leaders may try to decrease the periods of those mentors so that they may help implementation of EGR.
Yes, Jacqweline. Those Mentors have to discuss about the time of training with the school Leaders. Even the teachers may give suggestions about their availability that can not be a challenge to them. They have to approach Headteachers and head of studies. Am I wrong?
This culture of reading is important but more of our collegeus don't give it value so it our opportunity to encourage them to take time of reading them self and to promote their learners to read and seach to them books to read .
Thank you so Raymond for this interesting topic!
I,as an EGR STUDENT try to help my fellow teachers in this way:
-to follow the course together with them one period /week(audio &video)
-I take too one period to have conversation about what we watched
-after practice in the class
Another helping action is that every class tutor to one period/week and he goes to libray to read with his/her children.
So,It could be better to get time and we meet our colleague mentors to share what we are studying in EGR.
But,while that time has not yet come we share some of the summary about the courses through e-mail addresses.Thank u again.
the training first for teachers and teaching aids
Resources are very powerful in boosting literacy. They should contain books, documents, thesis, researcher's findings, video. The users should exploit them and sharpen the students so that the students will be good readers and writers. This is the time to use it and sensitize to our workmates to use them daily and explore the Paramount competencies stored inside.
Thank you so much.
I'm EGR student I think that, they are no questions,because KINYARWANDA is fondation of other lessons,if a learner fails in kinyarwanda it will be difficult to succed in other subjects.If you have question you can ask other colleagues.
Wow it is very important I am ready to give a support to teachers in our school
Hello, dear mentors , EGR students and all TCOP users? sorry for coming late because of the connection problem. Truly reading is the foundation of all knowledge which must be acuired by a learner at school. Dear , in teaching reading you have to know some technics includes: teaching vocabularies, style of reading,teaching sylables in the best way, teaching vocabularies using tree of vocabularies,...
Collaboration is the pillar of good work which is fruitful. At my school I encourage my colleagues to give time to learners to read. We are also organising the reading competition. The problem I still have is the little children of 6-7 years. They are not able to read. Maybe in nursery section they did have effective education.
It is very difficult for me to get connection the reason why I do not often attend these meet expert sessions. But, it is very important and helpful for a child to build in them the culture of reading when they are still little. Thanks a lot, and keep helping us.
EARLY GRAD READING WILL BE SPREAD WHEN WE COLLABORATE WHERE WE STAY AT SCHOOL , SHARE IDEAS WITH ALL COMMUNITY TCOP , MCOP ,AND EGR.
IHi my dear fellow kare nabuze connection ariko you EGR Students i don't see your sharing ideas how far you are in this EGR for little children come and explain me what technics do you use?
Thank u for the topic .For me when we discuss they say that kinyarwanda is changing .How to teach that wanjye is wage ? bati nibura yaba wagye..the EGR students will help us .
Good evening dear Colleague Mentors, EGR Students and TCOP staff. I enjoy this discussion.
Early Grade Reading has to be supported in the following ways :_ REB may provide different many reading books (short stories, any texts books, Books full of fun pictures and......). TCOP staff, REB and EGR teachers /trainers can collaborate and post some lessons here, in order to facilitate we, Mentors, SEOs and other readers.
They are many things have to be done in order to support EGR. Mentors also have to Train their Colleague teachers about EGR. We have to evaluate what we usually do, in order to annotate whether some of what we train are done in the right way. We can also try to be the model of others wherever it is possible . we can show the powerful love to our students when we are teaching how to read and write.
What I did, is to insert the support of Children Early Grade Reading in my trainings which I organize for my Colleague teachers at our school. They are done in TWO DAYS every week.
Thank you very much RAYMOND, Darlia, Diane, Nadine, Edwin and............. I like your commitment.
AFTER READING MUCH ABOUT EGR ,I'M DESIGNING SCHOOL LIBRARY IN ORDER TO INTRODUCE SOME TECHNIQUES ( reading corners , English clubs , English day,...) FOR LEARNERS AND FACILITATE TEACHERS TO EASILY EXPLORE THE LIBRARY .
1.Have a well-prepared lesson plan with variety of activities.
