We read the Darus Salaam book and I explained the story to Maimoonah. And Masha Allaah she too read the book with me. She could read many words she was familiar with Allaahu Baarik Laha. We pasted the Prophet's Fact Sheet and the review questions.
Then we did the Story sequencing cards which we got from easel and ink. Alhamdulillaah Maimoonah was able to read these cards 90% independently. I was not very sure if she could read them as they contain many different fonts. But She could recognize different fonts and read. This was a very good reading practice for her and a good means of testing her reading ability for me as well.
We learnt the origins of Shirk and how Shaitan trapped the people who were upon Tauheed. We discussed about the Nuh's alahissalaam son who disbelieved and drowned and how his wife too disbelieved later even though he was the messenger of Allaah. We laso discussed about his patience to call the people to Islaam for 950 years.
We learnt a little more about Floods in the encyclopaedia and watched the recent Tsunami video clip on the computer. We also went through fatwa-online Nuh's Ark pictures and the Mount Judi.
She did this animal matching activity and some colouring. She was bored and did not colour the ark : )
Then we painted this ark and made impression of rain with tooth brush and made clouds with cotton balls. She cut this ark on her own. Masha Allaah did well with the curves too.
We also did another ark craft with animals.
I got these craft templates from here
