One of the goals of every preschool teacher is to help their pupils learn how to read or at least make them ready. In our country, which is the Philippines, there were numbers of pupils who passed primary levels without knowing how to read. Thus, making them read at an early age is a big step to eliminate this problem. Making preschool pupils learn how to read is not an easy task. It should be fun and enjoyable. They have to make them see reading as an enjoyable thing to do and not something that they must do. And so the researchers make some traditional games educational. In a span of six months selected preschoolers underwent a program called ABAKALARO at Matuto (ABCs of Learning). This program is a series of educational games that will test and develop the reading skills of the participants. They re-invented some indigenous games in the Philippines (Palarong Pinoy) that have been part of the Filipino but due to the rise of technology, many children nowadays are not aware how to play them.

The two main goals of the study were achieved. The participants of the study showed significant improvement in their reading skills and some of the traditional games were revitalized. This is both a qualitative and quantitative study. The reading skills of participants before and after the six-month program were recorded and analyzed. The result of the study showed an increase of reading progress among the 83 selected kindergarten pupils of Pinagbuhatan Elementary School.
