So we are having a track of what's happening to the moon each day masha Allaah and learning a bit about it too. What you see is the waxing crescent that we saw on the second day of Ramadhaan.
We are using this calander to have a track of the phases of the moon each day. We look at this site everyday to see how would the moon look like each night and then also look up at the sky for the moon. Then she colours the phase of the moon and sticks on to the Calander. This Calendar could be downloaded here
Then I had bought this thick board book sometime back at a book sale for half the price and it became handy now and it will insha Allaah be useful in the future too.
We on and off take this book and go through the pages that talk about the moon and learn the phases.
Then I make her count. I ask her how many days have we fasted altogether and she counts and tells me, masha Allaah! And this gives her number recognition too.
Also we downloaded a power point on the phases of the moon and watched them. This powerpoint and many other resources to learn about the phases of the moon could be found here at A Muslim Child is Born blog Insha Allaah.
Also here you can find some beautiful and interesting Montessori Activities with regard to phases of the moon here Insha Allaah!
