بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
If you have been following our Homeschooling journey for the last 9 years, then you may know that I did not teach Maimoonah to read using the phonics method. You will also know that she is an early reader and by the age of 5, she was a vivid reader, reading chapter books and adult books such as the translation of the Noble Qur'aan, The Sealed Nectar, The Moon Split and the seerah of the companions and so on, by the Mercy of Allaah.
Over the years and even now many of you have been asking me as to how I taught Maimoonah to read without phonics. To make it really beneficial and productive I chose this topic for the next Mums Online Workshop. "Teach Your Child to Read".
In this 3 day workshop, we will be exploring the meaning fo reading and understanding what is really meant by reading. Having some background knowledge will definitely help us to have an idea about this noble task that we are hoping to undertake.
We will also explore the benefits of early reading and I will be sharing with you my experience and benefits I gained in facilitating early reading for my children.
You will be exposed to many reading methods and programs available today for teaching children to read and you will be given insights in order for you to do your own further research
We will also cover the full "Doman Method" of reading which I used with Maimoonah and currenltly using with my two-year-old Ramlah.
I will be sharing live demonstration of this program and helping you to understand how to implement it while you see it happening. You will see real sessions of reading been done with step by step instructions. Here is a sneak peek of what to expect with regard to live demonstration.
It does not end there, Inshaa Allaah we will further share with you some book recommendations for different ages starting from 2 years to chapter books. We will also have some discussions with regard to the benefits of fiction and nonfiction books and understand the different opinions of the scholars.
Sheikh Fauzaan, may Allaah preserve him, said beneficial knowledge is of two types that about the deen directly and that which supports and aides the deen. ((Statements of the Guiding Scholars of Our Age Regarding Books & their Advice to the Beginner Seeker of Knowledge: page 81, Taalib Educational Resources)
Teaching our children to read undoubtedly is beneficial knowledge as it aids them to understand their religion.
I will be sharing with you how early reading helped us to progress in the learning of the dheen throughout our homeschool by the permission of Allaah.
We will also have a Q and A session to address all your doubts and have a fruitful discussion inshaa Allaah.
And finally, those who attend the workshop will take home in-depth digital notes of the workshop and educational reading resources that I have been collecting over the years in the form of PDF books, powerpoint presentation and more.
This will be a live workshop with access to the recordings. So even if you miss a day or miss some parts you still have the opportunity to catch it up inshaa Allaah as the passcode to access the recordings will be sent to all participants.
