We spoke about the fact that Allaah could see everything at the same time and even a musterd seed when it is dark. He is Al Baseer. We also discussed about we being obedient to Him always in public and private because He is able to see us no matter what.
Masha Allaah once again sis Umm Nu'man's mini work book was so wonderful and Maimoonah was so happy to complete it fast. She could read on her own masha Allaah and it was fun.
She was independantly making these words pasting them on the correct position masha Allaah! No supervision as I asked her to do it and finish while I pray and come.
She was the first to spot all these things masha Allaah!
We spoke about people being blind and these activities on the book made her understand this masha Allaah!
We also studied about the Eye. Pasted the diagram on the environmental studies book and we learnt the parts of the eyes and their functions.
We did a small experiment to see how the pupil gets bigger when it is dark and how it gets smaller when there is light by taking a mirror and obseving the pupil in a dark room and with light thereafter.
We also spoke about tears and and how we must take care of our eyes. You can teach everything about your eyes from here Insha Allaah according to the level your child. We just spoke about these things and Insha Allaah this is a great simple resource for older kids.
Maimoonah now knew that she should not rub her eyes when it itches rather she should blink, smile! She keeps reminding me not to rub my eyes these days.(Its really dusty and windy here, there were reported sand storms too, subhanallaah, so eyes keep itching)
We continued with some other sense of sight activities as well. Here are few!
Exploring shells with magnifying glasses
Checking out the magnets
Finding the other half of the picture
Itsy Bitsy book of sense
You can download this from here Insha Allaah and use to it for the remaining senses too.
Worksheet on the sense of sight: She was supposed to circle the pictures that she could see but cannot touch!
We learnt "Al Baseer - The All Seeing and Ar Raqeeb - The All Watcher"
Maimoonah memorized Soorah Al Alaq sometime back and for the last couple of weeks we did not start on a new soorah simply because Maimoonah is having a bad cough for the last one month and when she recites she keeps coughing more. So we have been taking it easy and few days ago we started memorizing Soorah al Humazah.
We did the next chapter on MEP maths. Its the introduction for more and less.
Also she did a counting and matching worksheet from the number book.
She traced this
She could read this masha Allaah!
Also we made a small reading book with cutting pictures from magazines to go along with our topic, "Maimoonah's Book of Look, see and read!"
Masha Allaah I could introduce some new words here and she enjoys reading this little book.
We coloured and learnt the letters "taa and thaa" Learnt to read them and she could read this Iqra page masha Allaah.
Masha Allaah she attempts to write these letters on the whiteboard with haraqaat and reads.
We also started the Learning Roots - Word flow. This week we learnt these words.
So that ends the next bacth of six weeks (Weeks 7 -12) of our Islaam is my life Pre school curriculum", Alhamdulillaah! We will not be having a break this time as we are already behind schedules : ) . Insha Allaah we will continue with our next 6 weeks.
