Our presentation club, Baitul Urooz, is something one of its kind. It was formed almost a year ago with a couple of Islooite homeschooling families. We have had a lot of sessions since then. Some new families have joined slowly and started to homeschool. Some other people have got interested in homeschooling by attending the club meetings.
Every person’s presentation is always inspiring, interesting and we always learn from it. Here, I will talk about our presentation club sessions that have happened from January 2012 – March 2012.
At our first club this year (January 10), I did my first presentation on the
Our home-grown crystals – thanks to Aunty Shazia’s chemistry kit.
laptop, about crystals. Through a Powerpoint presentation, I explained what are crystals, how we grow them, showed different crystals’ pictures, and also showed our home-grown crystals. You can download my crystish presentation here.
Then there was Z.W’s presentation on calligraphy. Z.W showed us different types of calligraphy and their history and also her own great calligraphy that she learnt from her teacher. Next was M. Kiyani’s turn. Her topic was backyard exploration. M.K talked about getting closer to nature by studying it and also showed us her simple, homemade but amazing microscope! She was inspired by my sister Aymun to explore and mentioned this as well. This was followed by H.Nadeem’s presentation on Khutoot-e-Khansa. She spoke about the young homeschooled writer, Maryam Khansa, and read a letter of hers. H.N’s presentation was in Urdu. Finally, H.N’s younger brother U. Nadeem gave a presentation on dolphins. He talked about different types of dolphins, their behaviour, body parts of a dolphin etc. and made a quick mention of the different zones of the ocean.
Being confident and doing your own presentation is wonderful, especially with homeschoolers around! I hope you enjoyed getting to know about our presentation club.
