Kindergarten First Day!

So today was Maimoonah's first day at Kindergarten Class at her "Home School"!!

I wanted to make it a little special for her. I made a small post card. I used the smart ark card making kit stickers : ) Also I made a small gift bag with chocolates, Ajwa dates and candy.

Then her Abi  decorated her classroom (living room) with balloons. 


Circle time area ready for class. For circle time, I have included talking about one particular manner and what to say when dua each day. We will use the What to say when , Good manners cards from Learning Roots. I will also put one small book for each day for Maimoonah to read during circle time. We will also use the Word Flow flash cards for Arabic and learn to read the Iqra book. All this apart from saying the alphabets, weather wheel, changing dates, learning to tell the time, English/Arabic Days of the week, months and saying the numbers which we did last year as well.

Her desk and chair ready for the class Insha Allaah. 

This is her study area or classroom all ready for Kindergarten Insha Allaah! In case you are wondering what is that big house over there, well that is the Eid Gift Maimoonah got from her Abi which was bought and given to her in Makkah, A Play House. : )


So how did it go today! Alhamdulillaah as she woke up and came out she was so shocked to see balloons hanging and was happy but really did not know why. So I explained to her and said that this is her First Day at Kindergarten and we have made it special for her. I also gave her the small gift with the post card, she was like this is for me??? Read the post card and said "Jazzakillaah Khayr Ummi".!!

We started the day with circle time, hifdhl and continued with our lesson plan. We did a bit of exercises and she had fun with play doughs and balloons.

We went out to the small park downstairs to play while doing some Qur'aan revision. Insha Allaah will be posting the summary end of the week according to the subjects.

Hope and pray all of you had a nice school day as well!

As Salaamu Alaiki

Yayyyy Mashaa'Allaah lovely first day synopsis! I think decorating the school area and giving gifts is such a nice idea!
Maimoonah looked as though she was having fun!
And my girls would be all over the play house!!!! They love things like that Mashaa'Allaah
Cannot wait to read your break down of subjects.
Did Maimoonah notice the grade level change in the work - prek vs k?
Did she find the work easy or a challenge compared to her pre k curriculum?

Assalamu Alaikum,

Alaikum salaam warahmathullaah Akhawaat,

Umm Suhailah, Maimoonah would love your girls to be inside her play house. Its so too huge just for her, sometimes I go inside and wait : )

Well I tried to make it as if it is a big class and she is big now, but I think she did not feel a big difference.

But learning about Tawheed and and Ruboobiyah and Uloohiya made her feel a bit big I guess in some way : )

Jazzakillaah Khayr sis Eva, just read your decision to put your daughter in school. May Allaah give you success and have a wonderful first day tomorrow Insha Allaah!

MashaAllah, I like the idea of having special first day of school.
We did start our formal classes last week alhamdulillah it is going smooth like before. We did add some more stuff to our circle time as well. InshaAllah I'll try to post about last week's summary soon.
May Allah give you and Maimoonah strength to go all the way through.Ameen.
