We could not do more activities due to being sick Masha Allaah but we managed to re read the book "Pat Cat and Tat Rat" for this reading program initiated by sister Umm An Nu'man.
I chose this book so that I will be able to use the beneficial and interesting activities provided by our dear sister Umm An Nu'man. I wish we had a library here and could had the same book as you have read dear sis, Qadarallaah Masha Allaah. Any way Jazzakillaah Khayr for all the meterials especially the book on Abu Hurairah radhiyallaahu anhu.
So this is what we did.
Read the book "Pat Cat and Tat Rat". Then asked her to tell the story in her own words. And she did it well Masha Allaah. She identified some words she knows in print like cat, rat, jam etc.." and typed on yahoo messenger with correct spellings masha Allaah, few she was not sure asked me and re confirmed.
Asked her to do the actions that Cat and the Rat did in the story. Example "where did the Cat sit" Then she said "Cat sat on the mat like this"... and so on. She enjoyed this masha Allaah and did the actions with lot of laughter...
Then we used sis Umm An Nu'man's cat direction cards and practiced the Arabic terms. Then I asked her Ayna Qittun? and asked her to take one card and asked what does it say she said tahta then I asked her to show the action and she went under the table. We continued this game and had fun Masha Allaah.
Then we read the book about Abu Hurairah radhiyallu anhu. Explained to her who the sahabahs are and how we should try to imitate them. I also added something to it and explained to her how he got his title "Abu Hurairah". He got this title because as a youth he one day went out to look after the sheep and he got so pre-occupied playing was playing with a little kitten that he did not see that some of the sheep were being attacked, so his mother called him "Aboo Hurairah". This is story was very loving to her, she started laughing, Masha Allaah.
So our story ended there for now Alhamdulillaah!
