A Complete ‘Preschool Curriculum’ for ‘Letter of the WEEK’ — September 9, 2016

A Complete ‘Preschool Curriculum’ for ‘Letter of the WEEK’

About the Folder:

Over the past few months, a group of homeschooling mothers and I have come together to organise a weekly meet up where our children get together and simply free play. Originally, the purpose of our meet ups were nothing more than just ‘playdates’ for our homeschooled children to allow them to socialise, do basic activities as a group and just support one another on our homeschool journey. What started out as ‘playdates’ has recently turned into something way more productive and beneficial for both mothers and children Alhamdolillah.

By Allah Ta’ala permission, we have created a ‘home-nursery’ and our very own personalised ‘Preschool Curriculum’ that we hope will last for at least 6-8 months inshaAllah. This is now available for all to download FREE now:

You can use this curriculum as a group or simply on your own. So far both children and mothers have been very pleased with it. So we wanted to share the success with other mothers like yourself. Most of what takes place in our home-nursery are taken from the ‘Letter of the Week Activity Book’ and the ‘Preschool Maths Activity Book’ where you can download on this website for free. We use the preschool maths book mainly as a guideline as we prefer to do more hands on activities and there are just so many out there walhamdolillah.

The learning objectives within our activities include; basic practical life skills, phonics learning, maths (counting colour/shape/size sorting), sensorial, fine/gross motor skills, exploring, creativity, social, fitness etc. Each mother encourages and supports their children (socially and educationally) and while the children learn at their own paste and mothers observe their unique ‘learning style’. The children’s work are also taken home to build their own Homeschool portfolios. We also have have regular group meetings over the phone where we offer one another extra support, recommend new ideas and voice other concerns.


What’s Inside?

  1. A Complete (English) Alphabet Planner/Timetable
  2. Lessons that cover 5 areas; Languages, Maths, Food Fun, Outdoor Fun and Arts/Crafts
  3. Word Bank for each Letter of the Alphabet
  4. Ideas for each lesson
  5. Spare Sheet (at the end of the folder) for your own ideas
  6. Holiday Planning

The following sums up what takes place within our playdates:

Circle Time – We begin (and end) every lesson with ‘circle time’; this starts with the remembrance of Allah where we teach the children to begin the gathering by calling upon Allah and sending peace upon the Prophet (salAllahu alayhi w sallam), we then spread the greetings of ‘Salaamu alaykom’ and encourage each person to shake hands with everybody in the room. Next, we remind the children that Allah made everything, mention what letter of the week it is and how many things they can mention that Allah made beginning with that letter. An introduction to what will take place that day will be given just after we all say the alphabet (with no music) and count to 20 or as much as the children are able. Upon completion of our day, every child is rewarded with a sticker to place on their reward chart which they stick on themselves.

‘Letter of the Week’ Theme – Each week, we introduce a new letter of the alphabet in alphabetical order. There are two meetings in a week; First meeting consists of Languages and Maths Activities, Second meeting has 3 options to choose from of various activities related to that letter; food, outdoor or arts. If, for whatever reason, work is not complete during playdate hours then children take their work home to complete there.

*There are 4 pages for each letter from the ‘Letter of the Week Book’ and we spend no more than 10 or 15 minutes per page then up to an hour doing various maths activities, the rest of the day the children are left to free play. For our second meeting (which consists of 3 different topics; Food fun, Outdoor Fun and Arts) we have the option to pick 1, 2 or all 3 of them that day depending on our time, for example if we want to do all 3 topics then we would start the day with Art then plan Food fun for a lunch then go out for the rest of that remaining day. Some days may require a trip to the Aquarium which will take up the whole day so we would find time at home to complete arts or just move on from it which is absolutely fine.

Meetings – At the end of each week or when necessary, a group meeting is held to discuss any concerns as well as planning.

This program is a really simple approach, it’s all a matter of reading through this planner and spotting the pattern of how things are done, the only change is literally the change of letter that week.


How to use the Folder:

  1. Print everything out on white A4 paper; adjust your printer to ‘borderless’ and one sided (one sided allows you to take notes and make checklists at the back of each page)
  2. Bind it at your local office supply
  3. Follow each page as it suits you and your family; (you can as a group or on your own)
  4. For more ideas, read the above ‘About’ section

What you need:

  • The ‘Playdates Planner’ Folder (please have a look at the planner before you begin, this will give you a good idea of what to prepare for, remember it’s really simple and has a pattern to it throughout so don’t stress. If you have any questions then you can email your concerns inshAllah)
  • Letter of the Week Activity Book, Preschool Maths Activity Book
  • Preschooler(s)/Parent or Guardian
  • Lesson supplies such as pencils, colours, scissors, glue, playdough, arts and crafts materials etc

We hope you enjoy this curriculum and please do let us know how you and your children get on inshAllah. May Allah make it easy for us all, increase us in His remembrance and tawwakul and make our children the COOLNESS of our eyes, Ameen!

Preschool Maths Activity Book (Number Counting) — August 29, 2016

Preschool Maths Activity Book (Number Counting)

About the Pack:

The ‘Preschool Maths’ Activity Book is designed for preschoolers in order to introduce them to numbers. This is a very straight forward and fun way of learning how to count and encourages preschoolers to develop their fine motor skills and creativity. A great resource to begin learning how to count in order.

How To Use This Book:

  1. Print everything out on white A4 paper (adjust your printer to ‘borderless’ and one sided OR two sided [recommended])
  2. Bind it at your local office supply

What you need:

  • This Book
  • Preschooler and Parent/Guardian
  • Pencil, rubber, pencil colours
  • Extras: blocks, legos, counters, playdough or something similar

Games and ‘Hands On’ Activities to play with your child:

  1. Cut out the numbers and shapes on sand paper and let your child trace them with their finger
  2. Cut out letters, numbers and shapes on sand paper or colourful card (twice) to make matching pairs, then let your child try to match them to the correct pair
  3. Get counters (preferably the same type and colourful) and lay them out on the table/floor. Print out numbers 1-20 labelled flashcards and let your child place the correct amount of counters on each card, making sure they count as they go. You can demonstrate examples for them and show them a pattern in counting e.g triangle has 3 sides, square has 4 sides etc. Get your child to look closely at how the counters appear when placed down together
  4. Cut out shapes in pairs (one big and one small) and get them to place the big ones on one pile and the small ones on the other. This will introduce them to the concept of more and less
  5. Use legos and blocks to build towers and get them to count how many they can
  6. Play counting games e.g ‘Duck goose’, place flashcards around them room and let your child run/skip/hop to them when you shout it out
  7. Get some number/shape magnets and allow them to ‘free play’ with them with/without you
  8. Make a number, letter and shape wheel each on a piece of card and on a separate piece of paper make your numbers, letters and shapes then stick them to a peg and ask your child to match it to the correct image

Tips:

  • Always take every opportunity to count, for example counting fingers, counting when taking steps up and down stairs, counting vehicles when outside and so on
  • Use mathematical language, e.g “Look, you have 2 blocks and I have 1, can I have another 1 please?”
  • When counting objects, encourage the child to move the object (they count) to one side as children at this stage are very visual
  • Introduce the number zero ‘0’ and do not overlook this. A good example is by first teaching them how to count 1,2 and 3. Put 1 or 2 objects in their hands and tell them that they have such and such amount of objects, then remove them from the hand and then tell them “Now you have zero objects in your hand”
  • Remember that counting numbers is more important than writing the numbers

‘My First Islamic Activity Pack’ — January 18, 2016

‘My First Islamic Activity Pack’

About the Pack:

‘My First Islamic Activity Pack’ is made by UmmAssadHomeschool.com and aims to help young children aged 4-8 years to understand themselves and the world around them from a pure Islamic point of view (only authentic resources from the Quran, Hadith and trusted Scholars have been used).

It introduces the correct Islamic Aqeedah with fun yet challenging activities without losing the message; also nurturing a child’s belief and love for Allah and His Messenger and familiarising them to follow evidences.

All topics included are based on Aqeedah, teaching the most beneficial knowledge (Islam) and asking questions that matter most such as ‘Who is you Lord’ and ‘Who is your Prophet’ and ‘What is your religion’. Explaining in simple terms the different types of creation and its purpose, thus leading into subjects such as Science and Geography.

The activities interact with children at their level whilst involving parent/guardian or teacher; a range of activities have been packed to keep any child productively busy in their ‘spare time’ such as letter, number and colour recognition, guided reading, writing, colouring, eye coordination skills, fine motor skills, quizzes, wordsearch games and much more. A must have for any child beginning to study Islam.

*This ‘Islamic Activity Pack’ is proof-read by Al-Madinah University graduate and student of knowledge Abdul-Hakeem @ibnmitchell. May Allah grant him success, Ameen!
