April: Read-Aloud & Islamic Storytelling

Bismillah.

I've been asked quite a number of times, whether RAIST will still be going on or not. So, I just would like to inform everyone who's been wondering that RAIST will always go on (Allah's permit) unless there's something more important happening to me.

Insya-Allah, tomorrow at 3 pm we will held a RAIST at Dar Nur al-Zahra' Library. Sorry for the short notice. I've been quite tied-up with the accounts, promoting the library, marketing our programs, asking around for donations (money) with people and companies who usually said they don't have enough to donate to us....etc.

Details:

VENUE: KID'S CORNER

Mother’s comment (Ninuk) : "
The difference between BAWAL and Bacalah Anakku is, if i may use metaphor, Bacalah Anakku is like your school textbook,
BAWAL is more like supplementary materials that can further support reading enthusiasm.
Bacalah Anakku is a good starting point to introduce to your children the "how to read" where the introduction of sound and syllabel, sukukata terbuka sukukata tertutup are introduced in a systematic approach. And BAWAL will further support your effort to get your children "to love to read". As adults, we will also enjoy reading BAWAL to ourself as well as when we read them with the family."

Invitation to present paper on read aloud at PTA of Pasti al-Qamariah, KB

Assalamualaikum everyone.

I've taken quite some time to write something on this blog after my last entry. Actually, there are so many activities going on at our library during this school holidays, they kept me busy all the time... except when I have to be with my husband at home.

Okay, today I'd like to write just a short report on an invitation that I've recieved from Pasti al-Qamariah.

On the 3rd of March, I presented a paper entitled, "Reading Aloud: The Most Important 20 Minutes of Your Day" during a PTA meeting of the pre-school. There were more than 30 parents attended the meeting.

Frankly speaking, I think my paper has achieved it purpose, that is to share the important of nurturing the love for reading in our home. On that day, I sold 4 sets of BAWAL reading set. That was really an achievement for me.

Parents're interested to participate and suggested that RAS will be held at the school. Alhamdulillah.

Insya-Allah, RAKB will train more speakers (Kak Ina, Kak An, Kak Je and Kak Wan... next time maybe the floor maybe yours) in the near future.

The Last RAS

Assalamualaikum all,

I'm really sorry for not writing earlier some reports about our last RAS which was held on February 26, 2005. Actually I was kind of waiting for Kak Je or Kak An or Kak Ina to write something... Anyway, from my POV, I can say that our last RAS was quite a fantatic reading session although we've finished early and the kids started to play around the lobby.

Kak An was good with her audience... kids laughing and most of them gave full attention to the stories (look at the picture of the 4 kids).

In full attention! Posted by Hello

Parents also feel happy to bring their children to RAS. Most of them kept telling me that they don't have time to read to their kids at home. 24 hours not enough... sometimes I also feel like that.

Aishah also was good and able to make her audience participated in the story that she read; 'The Magic Finger' from a Fairy Tales book. As a first timer she looks like she has some experience. Seems like Kak Wan was right, her daughter really likes being with kids.

Aishah and her group of kids. Kids show your drawing... Posted by Hello

RAS round-up:
19 kids
4 parents accompany their kids

They promise to come again next time.

TIPS FOR READING ALOUD ... ESPECIALLY FOR PARENTS

  • CREATE A SPECIAL TIME and place for reading aloud in your home.
  • CHOOSE A BOOK THAT IS FUN, exciting , and interesting for both you and your child. If either of you is bored, find another book - there is a book for everyone!
  • PREVIEW YOUR READ-ALOUD BOOK to be sure it has action and emotional impact, so that you and your child can share these experiences together.
  • BE A HAM! Read with expression and feeling - try different voices and sounds - make the snake hissss and the door creeeak! Use pacing by reading slower or faster as the story changes.
  • SIT CLOSE TOGETHER and enjoy each other's company.
  • VISIT THE LIBRARY often and let your child help select books for reading aloud. Ask the librarian for suggestions if you need them.
  • ENCOURAGE YOUR CHILD to be involved by talking about the book. Share your feelings with each other during exciting or sad parts.
  • CULTIVATE THE HABIT of reading aloud by making a commitment - for some families it may take time to enjoy fully and feel comfortable with reading aloud.

Becoming a Reader -- Helping Your Child Become a Reader

Every step a child takes toward learning to read leads to another. Bit by bit, the child builds the knowledge that is necessary for being a reader. Over their first 6 years, most children
  • Talk and listen.
  • Listen to stories read aloud.
  • Pretend to read.
  • Learn how to handle books.
  • Learn about print and how it works.
  • Identify letters by name and shape.
  • Identify separate sounds in spoken language.
  • Write with scribbles and drawing.
  • Connect single letters with the sounds they make.
  • Connect what they already know to what they hear read.
  • Predict what comes next in stories and poems.
  • Connect combinations of letters with sounds.
  • Recognize simple words in print.
  • Sum up what a story is about.
  • Write individual letters of the alphabet.
  • Write words.
  • Write simple sentences.
  • Read simple books.
  • Write to communicate.
  • Read simple books.
Children can take more than one of these steps at the same time. This list of steps, though, gives you a general idea of how your child will progress toward reading. (For more details, see Typical Language Accomplishments for Children, Birth to Age 6.)

Talking and Listening
Scientists who study the brain have found out a great deal about how we learn. They have discovered that babies learn much more from the sights and sounds around them than we thought previously. You can help your baby by taking advantage of her hunger to learn.
Hearing you talk is your baby's very first step toward becoming a reader, because it helps her to love language and to learn words.
From the very beginning, babies try to imitate the sounds that they hear us make. They "read" the looks on our faces and our movements. That's why it is so important to talk, sing, smile, and gesture to your child. Hearing you talk is your baby's very first step toward becoming a reader, because it helps her to love language and to learn words. (See "Baby Talk".)
As your child grows older, continue talking with her. Ask her about the things she does. Ask her about the events and people in the stories you read together. Let her know you are listening carefully to what she says. By engaging her in talking and listening, you are also encouraging your child to think as she speaks. In addition, you are showing that you respect her knowledge and her ability to keep learning. (See "Chatting with Children.")

Writing Children's poems

If you've read the writings of Dr. Seuss, children's writing may seem to be a snap. However, anyone that has ever tried to write a children's poem knows that the process is much harder than it seems. It's very easy to fall into overused conventions and produce work that is not original. It is a well-known fact that publishers rarely accept children's poetry. This is the reason that there are so few established children's poets. Use the following tips to create original and engaging children's poetry that may just beat the tough market:

1. Don't Be a Mimic
The first mistake that all new writers to children's poetry fall into is writing like another writer. Publishers receive tons of Dr. Seuss-like poems from hopeful writers. If you are going to write children's poems, you first have to develop a unique voice, one that no one can dispute or copy. Courses in this area are usually available at local colleges, and writer's groups are invaluable for testing new work. This is the key to breaking into the poetry market.
