This is related to idea 5 – repeat it 7 times… WHAT you repeat 7 times however, should be feasible! Start small, an ayah perhaps, or even half an ayah if it is a long one. It may seem that they are not really picking it up the first day, but the second day it will Inshallah seem more familiar to them and come easier.
Also, don’t rush to the next one too soon! If a day or two is needed on the one ayah, then spend that day or two on it, perfecting the makhraj as well – because once they’ve learnt it wrong, it is very hard to change!
Following on from the Eid Tree idea shared last week, now we need to get thinking on how to decorate it!
We are trying to gather all the ideas (both decoration-wise and just general uses for the Eid tree) here on this Pinterest board – join us! If you come across anything that you think might be good, pls feel free to share too!
Lastly, why not get some mums and kids over to have a decoration making session? Home-made decorations are so charming and the children will love seeing their handiwork up there. It also makes it easier when done together, doesn’t it?!
If you’re in the London area, join us for ours! It will be at the Children’s Islamic Library in Stanmore next Wednesday at 2pm.
Happy decorating 🙂
