Abstract

Instructional materials come in many shapes and sizes but they have one thing in common, the ability to support the students’ learning. The prevailing purpose of this study is to seek the insights of the classroom teachers on the available instructional materials used in teaching Kindergarten in a certain public elementary school in Tacloban City Division and the participants will be selected through purposive sampling. This study is supported by the Meaningful Reception Learning Theory of David Ausubel which states that teachers or instructional designers can best arrange the conditions that facilitate learning for students. This study utilized the Husserlian phenomenological design using Colaizzi's descriptive phenomenological method of data analysis through semi-structured interviews. The result of this study could provide insights on the available instructional materials in a Kindergarten classroom and what other materials could be produced to aid in the teaching process.
