Summary week 8, Allah gives me food to eat

This week we had a lot on our plan and we had a lot of fun as well. We started with the workbook by Umm An-numan, alhamdulillah, and from there we laid the foundation for this weeks activities. They repeated the ayat she has used in the mini book after me while they coloured the pictures and I explained the meaning to them.

I had to make some small changes on some of the activities due to the language difference but it worked out all fine alhamdulillah.

Adam continued trying writing on his own. He want to do it all by himself so I let him of course. The assignment were to make a recipe and he wanted to write a recipe for pancakes so I spelled and he wrote, masha Allah.

We did read about what kinds of foods that is healthy and why the body is in need for nutrition, and talked about that we need food to grow and to get strong to worship our Creator.

And they colored food pyramides while I exlained about them and we put them at our weekly board.


And we made a poster of healthy/unhealthy food.

We talked about how the digestive system works.

We also talked about how the teeth cruhses our food and that we need strong and healthy teeth. And I explained how the food we eat influences our teeth and that we need to take good care of them.
They are already familiar with the siwak, but I told them how often our prophet sallahu aleihi wa sallam actually used it and they understood that it is really important to take care of our teeth, alhamdulillah.
We also talked about some more of the sunnahs regarding food, for example how some foods make our breath not smell good, and that garlic and leek needs to be prepared very well if we want to use it because angels gets offended of bad smells too. We talked about the prophet sallahu aleihi wa sallam sitting on the floor for eating, to eat with our right hand and from what is closest to us. And we talked about what to do if we forget to say bismillah. They already knew what to say masha Allah.We also talked about if dropping food at the ground one should brush of it and eat it.

We read two of the books from arabicfirst, this was one of them, foods from the Quran and the other one
was called Our shop and learns the names of several vegetables in arabic.

And we watched a powerpoint slideshow from Talibideen called the muslim picninc with foods from the Quran, they enjoyed it very much.
Of course we cooked together too, actually we do that quite a bit because they love to join me in the kitchen, especially Roqaya while Adam is always in for the sweets. They wanted to prepare banana cake for friday as they saw it to be the healthiest cake (because of the bananas I guess) and they helped prepare it masha Allah.

We did worksheets with letter recognition

And arabic numbers, thalatha and arbae

and easy math, but insha Allah we will start up with MEP maths, reception year, next week,

also easy tracing of latin letters with phonic assignment
On aqeeda we continued reading from Aqeeda level 1 and this time we talked about being a muslim, and the differences between muslim and kafir.

We read the story of prophet Shuayb a.s and colored in his name for our book of prophets and we could fill in another name for our prophets of Allah tree. We puzzled our giant journey puzzle and they reviews the stories of the prophets we have covered so far and still keeps asking about the remaining ones "who is this over here" "tell us something about him", masha Allah.

We learned the names of Allah, Al Karim, Ar razaq and Al barr,

Regarding Quran they finshed surah al maoon and started surah al kawthar masha Allah.

We also had a new game, a domino game with regocnition of pictures at one side and counting at the other side. One is supposed to bring identical images together and thats the only way to continue the play. It was fun and we played it together many times, but they even played it by themselves today. Great quality, and solid bricks. They enjoyed the counting as well as the animals, and we named the animals in arabic.

Here you can see the other side of the bricks:

But since Im careful with them get to feel that it is hard work and we merely play and have fun together with this the hours may decrease or increase due to what subject we`re on. alhamdulillah, just love the curriculum, all cred to Umm Maimoonah and the sisters developing it, masha Allah.
