Alif Baa App Review

This year I've introduced an Arabic app to my prekindy classes and the children have been enjoying taking turns on the ipad using it.

There are four functions on the app: flashcard, find the letters, arrange the letters and write the letters. The flashcard function is a substitute for the cardboard flashcards that you would normally use. The find the letters function displays four letters and asks the child to touch a certain letter to identify it. The arrange the letters asks students to arrange the whole alphabet in order. Finally, the writing function asks students to draw along the inside of the letters with their finger.

Teach Your Child About Emotions

Download high quality pdf below
Teaching your child about his emotions should be a goal of your parenting. When he knows how to label his emotions, he'll be able to express it in words rather than in actions. Knowing about emotions also creates awareness of what others are feeling. This leads to empathy and active listening.

Book Review: The One

Title: The One
Author: Manaal Jafrey-Razaque
Illustrator: Tanya Emelyanova
Age: 3-5 year olds

The One is a fun-to-read, rhyming storybook about Allah that touches upon fundamentals of His creation, proving Allah’s existence, and introducing some of His attributes for children to grasp from an early age in order to instill awe and love for Him,even though He cannot be seen. 

Everything about this book is so sweet and adorable, from the wording to the delightful illustrations. I don't normally like rhyming books just because most of them sound so cliche and don't flow naturally off the tongue - it's like the words were forced. Not so with 'The One'. It was a real pleasure to read it.

Masjid Shapes Activity

Are you teaching your child about the masjid? This week in prek, we've read a book about the masjid. I chose a book that had disntinct shapes to the drawings of the masjid. After we've read the book, we looked at the page with the masjid and discussed the shapes. Then I had the children make this shaped masjid.
