Here’s what we were up to on the 7th of Jan.
We had just passed the week of Miladun Nabi and we spent the day discussing the Prophet, learning about his Akhlaq and reading about his life.
We revised the letter ‘baa’ and did an activity. We also revised the second ayah of Surah Ikhlaas.
In Tareekh we read a story about our Prophet Muhammad.
He is also the Last Prophet
He was born in Makkah on the 17th of Rabi ul Awwal
It was Aamul Feel, The Year of the Elephant.
The Prophet used to wear a green cloak.
Allah gave Prophet Muhammad the Qur'an.
Angel Jibrail used to recite the Qur'an to him.
Prophet Muhammad's daughter was Bibi Fatema.
He loved all children and would always play with them.
He always spoke the truth so he was called As-Sadiq.
I can visit his Zari in Masjidun Nabawi in Madina.
We followed that with an activity of making Masjidun Nabawi Birthday Cards for the Prophet’s birthday.
We gave mummies a piece of card folded in half. The children stuck tissue paper onto the inside of the card and then mummies cut out the dome and minaret from the card front and glued the card shut. Finally we decorated the top with crescents, stars and balloons.
In Akhlaq we discussed how the Prophet was very polite and how he emphasized cleanliness.
We did two rhymes one with props and one with actions which will be posted subsequently.
