Literature for this grade consists of simple picture books with a
limited amount of text. There are loads of non-Muslim written books for this age and
you are encouraged to seek them out. We have listed here only those books with a
Muslim flavor. We will add more books to this section as we find them.
Teachers should read aloud to the students who will follow along in their own books.
In time, students will be encouraged to read aloud themselves.
Constant verbal encouragement is a must. Even when a child
makes a mistake, encourage them by saying, "That's close. You did very
good." Never tell a small child, "That's wrong." Never
humiliate a child by saying others read better and never choose the best readers all the
time just to make your job easier.
