    Abstract

    Presently many preschool children are still unable to identify letters or words hence leading to difficulties in normal writing and reading. As a result they need guidance and intervention in reading to overcome such difficulties. The main objective of the research was to test the reading intervention module (MIM) among preschoolers in Malaysia. The MIM was developed based upon module development approaches by Fitzgerald, Bauder and Werner (1992) and Scheafermeyer (1990). Additionally the research seek to examine the differences between the experimental and control group in the level of reading skills after using MIM. The test retest reliability of MIM was obtained with Alpha Cronbach 0.9357. The data were analyzed using by SPSS 12.0 version. A hundred preschool children from Bandar Tenggara, Johor were randomly selected as a sample. The pre-test data showed that most of the children experienced difficulties in letter-name, sound letter and reading words and they have different levels of reading abilities. The finding showed that the experimental group (mean=82.48) performed better than the control group (mean=59.36) after the post test. Preschool teachers who had conducted the experiments agreed that the MIM can be integrated in preschool teaching and learning.
