So this week was full of activities. Discussed about the blessing of having a shelter and animals, birds and human beings need shelter and Allaah is the Provider of this. We talked about why we need a house. She said we need a house to protect us from rain, sun and we need a house to sleep and go to the toilet. We also discussed about etiquettes of entering one's house and entering other people's houses.
We learnt about Housing through the Ages from the encyclopaedia.
We made this small board house.
She coloured this and then cut the shapes and pasted and made this.
Next we learnt the different parts of the house.
She named all the things in a living room, bathroom, kitchen and bedroom.
We did these worksheets on matching and tracing.
Then we spoke about animal homes and did this worksheet from sis Umm An Nu'man.
Also we did the Homes have shapes worksheet. And we took our shapes out and did a bit of a revision in Arabic and English.
We read the Little People Book on Welcome to our home and then she did the sticker activity at the end of the book.
We had this beautiful felt stuff on Homes theme which I got from the Early Learning Centre was very cute and helped her to do a little bit of interior decoration as well. Masha Allaah while she was doing this she was using full of descriptive words. This is indeed a great activity.
Continuing with MEP, we did the next few chapters. We learnt to count upto 7 with fingers and did this counting board game. I changed it according to Maimoonah's ability.
She learnt the right side, left side and middle of something in a row along with the ordinal numbers. The concept of how many missing and subtraction concept along with adding I think she needs more practice with more numbers. So we just did this with counters for the moment and as time goes she can re do it Insha Allaah.
She also did the next few pages on her number work book.
Alhamdulillaah, after our circle time now Maimoonah can count upto 50 and knows to tell the times o clock and half past.
Reading, writing, Language
We made this Homes book and Maimoonah is able to read.
We spoke about our Final home Jannah or Jahannam and read all about both the abodes from the lovely Darul Kitab books, My little Book of Jannah and My little Book of Jahannam.
We did our usual reading game this time with marbles and pom pom balls. Every time she picked and read the piece of paper she wanted one marble or a pom pom ball as reward!
Also at the beginning of the post you can see our white board for this week. Maimoonah is able to read that Masha Allaah!
We read and learnt the Homes From Different parts of the world from arabicfirst and did the activities.
She learnt the next few letters.
And we practised reading.
I added 2 more flash cards (4 new words) from Word Flow for this week. Previous flash cards words are familiar to her to read now.
We are memorizing Soorah Taariq but going slow as I am facing an emotional issue with Maimoonah. She is actually going through a phase now that she feels when she makes mistakes while reciting the soorahs she already know that she is defeated and breaks down. And gets very frustrated when someone is correcting her and refuses to accept that she made a mistake. So it has become a small sensitive issue. If any sisters dealt this with their kids please share as to what they did. I am just ignoring these days and asking her to correct me if I am wrong. So lets see how it goes bi idhnillaah!
Lacing with different shapes and number of holes.
We revised the Asmaaul Husnah and did not learn the new Names as I realized I do not have those particular names and meanings printed out and I am unable to trouble sis Umm An Nu'man right now as she is having a busy schedule. So Insha Allaah we will do these two names later and also the mini book for this week will be available whenever sis Umm Nu'man is able to do as usual I have asked her to take her time. The previous week's mini book is available to download and we will be completing that and updating the last summary post soon Insha Allaah! A big Jazzakillaah Khayr for sis Umm An Nu'man.
All the links for resources that I have used for the week are available on the Pre School Curriculum documents for this week Insha Allaah!
