Improve Fine Motor Skills with Stencil Tracing

When your child starts school she needs to be able to hold the pencil properly with the pincer grip.

There are so many different ways that a child can hold the pencil but the proper way, using the thumb and forefinger and middle finger, makes writing so much easier. Children who hold it incorrectly are often frustrated with writing and so attempt to avoid writing altogether.

An Attitude of Gratitude

(c) Ayeina
Each day in my prekindy classes I always try to teach children about being grateful to Allah for all the things that He's given them. 

When we sing the song "If You're Happy and You Know It" I always end it with, "If you're happy and you know it say, 'Alhamdulillah'" and the children would say "Alhamdulillah." (instead of clap your hands). I would reinforce it by saying, "Thank you Allah for letting us be happy. Alhamdulillah!"
