Kindergarten Curriculum Summary - Week 8

Islaamic Studies

  • Belief in the Last Day - We learnt when the Last Day will begin and all the events related to the Last Day. We read the hadeeth of the description of the last day, the hadeeth of people asking the Prophets to intercede, the hadeeth of seeing Allaah. She was very interested and was listening to all the events. We also learnt hoe believing in the Day of Judgement will benefit the Muslims. We did this worksheet.

  • Belief in the Qadr - We learnt what is the will of Allaah and what is the Qadr which is good and which is Bad. I did not go in to details of this but explained very briefly. We discussed that we must believe that all what happens, happens only by the will of Allaah and whatever happens to the believer is always good. We also discussed what happens on the Night of Qadr and what can change the Qadr by the will of Allaah. I did not give a worksheet on this to do as I felt thinking too much about this topic will make shaitaan play with this small mind. So Insha Allaa I just made it clear that we accept things with patience when something happens and we never say or question as to why this happened.

Alhamdulillaah with this we have completed the Strand 1 and the Strand 2 of the SK Curriculum and Insha Allaah from next week onwards we will be starting the Seerah of our Prophet sallaahu alaihiwasallam and Fiqh!

English Language
  • Jolly Phonics - She did the following letter sounds and the worksheet.
  • Grammar - Comparison of Adjectives. She read the little Grammar book and did the activities. Now I find the books are having a little bit more writing but she in enjoying now masha Allaah. This work book contained some maths activities too : ) like heavy heavier and cheap cheaper cheapest!


  • Comprehension - This week I found a nice website with free comprehension passages ideal for Maimoonah and printed out this and she read and answered the questions too!
  • Writing and Spelling - After doing the Jolly phonics worksheet I asked her to write the words without looking on her book and did well masha Allaah. Spelling is progressing well. Also she is able to write some of the days of the week like Sunday and Monday. 

  • What do Animals Eat - We learnt what do animals eat and she did these worksheets and the work book.



  • MEP - We completed few more chapters on MEP
  • Additions 10 + - I taught Maimoonah all the additions of 10 + . Explained to her then gave her the sums on her book and she wrote the answers.

  • Madeenah Readers - We continued with "ال" and this week did not do any writing of Gateway to Arabic. but she learnt how to write "ال and she attempted writing الولد . We went through the Arabic First Books to revise vocabulary.

mashAllah. excellent job Maimoonah. Oh how I wish you lived nearer and could play with Sumayya and Safiyya, a sincere wish :)
You were trying to find some playgroups for M sometime ago. Have you found them? Is she very social? Do you have lots of English speaking ppl where you live sis?

I see how it is very important for them to form friendships at this age with my girls. Now, I am running islamic circle for their friends (girls aged 4) on fridays at our house, alhamdulillah.

MashaAllah, nice job for both of you.

Does Maimoonah like the font size in Madina Arabic Reader? Ibrahim says the letters are too small and hard to read. But they like it if I do the reading. You did learn vocabulary worksheets from Arabic comes first, right? how does Maimoonah like them? For us they are helping us a lot especially now.
And because they mostly have vocabulary I add short questions or phrases when we practice like man haza (hazihi), ma haza, a haza..., laa haza, naam haza, dhalika, tilka, ayna al-.., huva/hiya or al- ... prepositions etc.

Alaikum salaam warahmathullaah Akhawaat,

Umm Sumaiyah I wish the same too, Qadarallaah Masha Allaah! So nice to know you are having some activities at home for kids. I am sure all of you enjoy the company Insha Allaah!

Yes Insha Allaah, a dear sister has come forward to do something with the girls and I asking Allaah to enable us to attend this girls club Insha Allaah. If we do go will update on that next week Insha Allaah! Barakallaah feekum for your concern and sharing your activities!

Umm Suhailah, likewise we always appreciate your kind comments. I told Maimoonah your message and she was very shyly saying tell her Thanks Ummi!!! So a Big Thank You for Maimoonah!

Jazzakillaah Khayr Umm Sara. Yes Maimoonah finds it difficult to read the small letters on Madeenah Book but what she knows very well she is capable of reading like "Haadah" etc etc. But most of it I read and we practice talking more than reading. You are right the Arabic First Books are great! I used it when she was 1 year onwards to teach her vocabulary, now I use it to teach her how to read. We use those books very often when we do our Iqra book.

I notice Maimoonah gets confused with Arabic letters when she sees them in different forms but she recognizes words fast and reads the words soon without taking the trouble to read the letters and form the word. This is mainly because this is how she learnt to read English and she is trying the same way out in Arabic as well. So now I have to deal with it accordingly! The best so far I feel is that I teach her both and with practice she will come out of it Insha Allaah! I am continuing with Iqra books and revising from the start again and again to make it familiar for her Insha Allaah! So the progress will be slow but I guess she will get there by the mercy of Allaah soon Insha Allaah!
