Marking Ramadan with Older Kids - Idea 2: Calendar inserts

Posted:

So as well as a candy calendar that we received as a gift, I decided to take out our cloth calendar as well. The questions on the candy one were great, but suitable for much younger kids.

  1. In our cloth calendar I used Academy For Learning Islam’s breakdown of Maqarim-ul-Akhlaq (which is conveniently in 30 sections!). It seemed like a great way to familiarise them with this beautiful dua which is so befitting in this month, as well as get them ready to recite it on the Night of Power!
  2. To incorporate a focus on familiarisation with the Quran (as they get their recitation practise at mosque), I decided to focus on picking certain verses from the Quran and adding them to the calendar. I really would love for them to have a ‘favourite’ verse from the Quran that they identify with and think of often, just like your beautiful answers to my question on the page earlier. I have made a file of 15 images with different verses on them – I chose a range of easy-difficult, familiar-unfamiliar ones – one every second day of the month. If they can memorise it, then great, otherwise just familiarity with it and a discussion on it is the plan! Here is the link if anyone is interested!
  3. This is a good link to a checklist by Noor Janan Homeschool which is a good tracker method over the 30 days.
  4. This link from Kisa Kids provides a whole bunch of Quranic Duas which are ideal for putting into calendars for older kids. If they decide to do the competition, then all the better!

 

Verse-a-Day inspiration

Posted:

Every Ramadhan, as well as trying to communicate the importance of this month and all its facets to our children, we strive to seek a balance and make it a spiritually uplifting month for ourselves too.

Whereas the recitation of the Quran is highly recommended, I often feel that with just recitation, or even translation, i’m not doing enough to make an impact on myself, to change, hopefully for the better. This year, Alhamd, I found the perfect tool to get to learn and apply the Holy Quran in our lives in small, manageable and very practical doses.

Check out Academy of Learning Islam’s Ramadhan Verse-a-Day program – I hope you find it as beneficial as I do, and that it gets your spirituality buzzing this Ramadhan!
