Teaching kids five pillars

Assalaamu alaikum wa rahmatullah,

The five pillars of Islam

As a part of our KG curriculum put together by Umm Maimoonah I introduced them to the five pillars of islam. I started by telling them what a pillar is (the word is søyle in norwegian and not that commonly used at least not in our family) and illustrating how a building needs its pillars to be steady with wooden builiding blocks. They have repeated that a lot by themselves when playing after this.
After that I illustrated it in anouther way with a book we used to read a lot a few months ago and it shows how a house is build on pillars to make a steady foundation.
I then I showed them the TJ poster and explained that this is the pillars of islam and its our foundation and what every muslim must know and practice.

Then we moved on to the shahada and we looked at the TJ explanation and I explained the part that were new to them- the ashadu (the bearing of witness) and they learned it alhamdulillah. They colored the shahada and I briefly introduced them to the conditions of shahada

After that we talked about Salah, they remembered the names of the different salawat and they knew their order. Then I explained what a rakaa is and we went through it with the learning roots cards.

 I asked them if they had ever noticed that some salah are recited loudly and others silently and they had and I told them which that were recited load and which not.

We then read a book about salah  together that a familymember brought us from a travel and it explained things very nice.

Then we started the Five pillar scrap book from TJ and we made the pages together and discussed about its contents.

Here they have decorated the five pillars with water colors and my son wrote the names of the five pillars inside and they glued them on the page:

 First we did shahada:

Then we did salah f.ex wudhu and that salah is the first thing we will be asked about on yaum al qiyama. They also reviewed adkhaar for rukuu and sujuud.

Next we learned about Zakat, we read this little book that was the other one we were giftet like the one we read on salah:

And we did the reading and worksheets from Umm Maimoonah too:

Then we talked abot Sawm Ramadan and we looked at our Ramadan lap book from last Ramadan to review about that alhamdulillah.

And finally we talked about Hajj and reviewed our Hajj lap book too (As I have not posted so much after we shiftet maybe no one has seen that one yet):

Here at five pillar scrap book pages for Hajj, Ramadan and Zakat:

Then we made a five pillar mobile with the contents from Umm Abdul Basir,

I cut and the kids painted with water colors before I glued everything together, this is how it became,
