We read Usooluth Thalaathah and the Aqeedah book for children and practiced the Arabic "Man Rabbuki?" "Rabbee Allaah". Maimoonah loves these two books and she really likes when I read the proofs from the Quraan and she tries to catch them fast Masha Allaah. The Aqeedah book done by our Brother Moosa Richardson is really catchy, because it has some questioned to be asked at the end of each lesson and all answers are mostly yes or no. I make it kind of an activity where she stands in one place and listens to the questions carefully and answers, inbetween I ask her to jump 5 times, run from here to there and give her instructions in Arabic, this way she will not get bored Insha Allaah.
We learnt about the name "Allaah". I will post in detail what actually I intend doing with Asmaaul husna on another post Insha Allaah.
Masha Allaah she could read this on her own.
We practiced reading with new words and sentences about Allaah and His creations.
And she read these two books to me on her own..
We have borrowed a couple of Noddy books from my cousin and she absolutely loves them. And these are the books she wanted me to read to her this week. Hope to get her more Noddy books Insha Allaah!
We did a pre writing activity book.
We have been learning to write letters "A, L, l, H,laam and alif". Writing is progressing well masha Allaah!
She really loved this. I was surprised, she could remember the spellings of most of the words masha Allaah. I also made her fill in the missing letters of the word. She did well in that too. We made a sentence to go along with our theme. She was insisting that she needs a capital A for Allaah, but we have only the lower case letters so I told her Insha Allaah will get her the upper case letters soon.
I insist on cleaning up after each activity.. you can see her doing that : )
Using the Tweezers
Lacing and using the needle
We wanted to paint the name "Allaah" but her Abi was supposed to introduce paint brush painting to her and due his schedules we had to postpone that so instead we made this and she really enjoyed this activity.. a small book of A for her..
She wrote the letter "A" and we wrote some of the words starting with the letter "A". and checked her encyclopedia and 1001 words book index pages to get some words starting with the letter "A" and made this.
After I finished writing she suddenly said "Ummi A is for Abdullaah" (that's her father's name), write that also and write I love him". So we wrote that on the last page of her book.
Getting ready for week 2 Insha Allaah!
