Ramadhaan Activities 9 - 2011 - Phases of the Moon

Today we learnt about the Phases of the Moon. Since we did this last year in detail Maimoonah was familar with the different phases. We discussed about the phases and how we start and break our fast according to the sighting of the new moon. We used this Book from Umm Abdul Basir's.


 She read, coloured and for the first time subhanallaah she could draw something on her own.

 

 

She refused to colour all the pages since it was almost the same pictures but preferred to draw : )

Then we found one moon calandar for the month of August and examined the phases. Pasted on the Journal. And tried a small art technique whihc I remember doing in school when I was about 7 or 8 : )

First we pasted a sheet of papaer on the journal. Maimoonah coloured the paper with different colours of crayons, all ove on top of each colour. She loved this very much : )


Then finally coloured Black colour covering all the colours.

Then using a blunt pen I asked her to write anything she like about the Moon. This is what she wrote and this is how it looks. When you write on top of the black crayon it brings out all the colours underneath,(you cannot see the colours on the picture) I remember even drawing a whole scenery when I was 7 or 8 : )

She Wrote "O Moon,  play with me" :)

Masha Allah! Very nice drawings and very well written! Tabaraka Allah!

Loved the activity with color/black, that is something we will do definitely, insha Allah :)

I also loved the last post "love you for the sake of Allah", I want to copy that too and make it for the end of ramadan when we visit Abu Adam in the masjid insha Allah.

Jazak Allah khair sister. Great creativity!
