Summertime Quran Journaling Printable

During your children's summer holidays, don't let the learning stop. You can still make it fun! There are so many fun summer activities that makes learning much more interesting. You've got to keep those brain cells active. You know what they say: use it or lose it! 

One way to use it is to reflect on the ayat of the Quran. I've chosen an ayah and used a summer theme to match the wordings in the ayat. This is a great way to start your kids on Quran journaling. This is a good habit to instill in them - to constantly reflect on the ayah of the Quran.

The Broken Kingdom Book Review

Title: The Broken Kingdom
Author: H.G. Hussein
Recommended for: Teens & Young Adults

For weeks a dream has plagued the mind of the most powerful person on earth, the Sultan and Caliph of the Islamic Empire. Scenes of destruction and pain continue to visit him regarding a strange land, a city that he has never seen before. In his heart he knows that a strong connection exists between this hidden city and the Empire.

The Sultan entrusts the mission to a former soldier and close friend of the royal family, Adam ibn Mustafa. Over sea, deserts and mountains the reinstated soldier of the Sultan must venture to discover this city and save it from annihilation. But his journey is not an easy one as Adam must overcome natural disasters, wild beasts and a hidden enemy that seems connected somehow.

But all these trials are nothing compared to what awaits Adam at the end of his journey, a new threat or a forgotten enemy?

This book was read by my 14 year old son so this review was written by him.

The Broken Kingdom is a great story based around a unique set of characters who are well-characterised. This will make the reader feel like he is embarking on a journey with them. Great Islamic lessons can also be learnt with the characters through their unfolding stories.

Guided Play is Better Than Free Play for Learning

I'm constantly coming across posts from homeschooling mothers about how free play is important for children. They are adamant that children be allowed to play all day without any structured lessons from adults. Well no, both have their place for children but if you want children to learn through play then you have to guide their play. So yes, guided play is better than free play for learning. This is based on research.
