We learnt about who are neighbours and what is a neighbourhood. We did this topic before and we discussed again.
We learnt the rights of neighbours in Islaam. We discussed how we should be kind to our neighbours by not disturbing them, being nice and kind to them, cook a little more and share our food with them.
We did the beautiful minibook.
We learnt some hadeeth, did some pre writing and writing words, read some pages, pasted the missing words etc etc.
We discussed that we need to help each other when we are living, since we are not able to do all the work by ourselves and some people in our neighbourhood are skilled with certain work.
Then we watched some power point presentations from here regarding Neighbourhood and Community helpers.
Then we cut some pictures of the Community Helpers from here and pasted in our Environmental Studies book and discussed the work done by each helper.
Then I asked her questions like "If we are having a leak in the bathroom, who would we call to mend it?" Then she goes "The Plumber!" and we continued like this.
Then we chose to do a lapbook on Policeman mainly because these days she has been smiling too much with the policemen outside : )
These are the contents before assembling.
We used finger paints and did the fingerprintings. Then went through the Traffic signs and shapes. Spoke about each sign and where would see them. We made patterns. Spoke about the duties of a policeman.
This is the inside of the Lapbook .
And this is how the cover looks.
Then we did this pasting the stickers activity which also had the Arabic terms for tools used by community helpers. The English in it was not that great because there were some Grammar and spelling mistakes. We used this for the activity and Arabic.
We did this Direction worksheet. We learnt about North, South, East and West. She actually did well to find out where the girl is by following instructions.
She did this worksheet where she had to colour the places of work,play and living.
Then she made these Community Helpers Puzzles.
We have been reading about Image making this week and the punishment for it in Aqeedah of Shaikh Yahya Al Hajoori Hafidhahullaah.
We learnt and pasted Al Malik - The King
Reading, Writing and Language
She Traced this
Also her writing has really improved now more than tracing masha Allaah!
She read this book which caught her eye. She really did well Allaahu baarik lahaa with trying to read some big words in this book. Since it was her interest in butterflies she continued reading with a little help.
We read The Book of Jobs from Arabic First. Reviewed the Arabic Terms for each community helper.
We did only one chapter from MEP as we had some Family issues(coping with a death of a non muslim relative, subhanallaah) this week and it was indeed a great calamity. May Allaah protect all of us.
Closing and Opening the door (the importance being not making any noise while doing so)
