Islamic Copywork

Tonight I came across a great site, called Islamic Copywork, I printed quite a few things off, I especially liked the 'Obedience to parents' sheets, which quotes ayats from the Qur'an emphasising the importance of obeying the parents, which the child has to copy.

Animal school

Take a look at this touching, thought provoking movie from raising small souls.com, it actually made me feel a tad bit emotional. There is music playing, so you can just turn it down if you wish insha Allaah.

Ramadan memory game link

I just found a great resource for use in Ramadan over at UmAbdul Basir's blog, it's a ramadan memory game, you can print it out in B&W or colour, your choice. I've just printed mine out now on to cardstock, and waiting for Dd8 to colour them in, and then we can laminate them insha Allaah.
You'll find many more ideas for ramadan in the sister's blog I just mentioned, may Allaah reward her for her efforts and sharing these great resources with us, ameen!

What's happening with us?

Assalamu 'alaykum and Hi!

Well, it sure has been a while since I've posted any proper updates, I can't believe I've left it this long, my apologies for anyone who's at all interested in my blog.

BTW......Ramadan Mubaarak!!! May Allaah accept our fasting and good deeds, ameen.

We haven't done alot over the summer holidays, we did go away to Wales to see the family for two weeks, and then to London for another week, it was nice to have a break away for a bit alhamdulillaah.

We're currently in the process of putting up a Ramadan display on our classroom wall, insha Allaah we'll have it done before it ends !! ;) For some great ideas for things to do with the kids in this blessed month, and yourself, check out TJ Ramadan

I'm also busy at the moment planning for the new school year, Dd5 will be coming up to Yr1 and Dd8 yr 4, I'm still trying to follow the suggestions in The Well Trained Mind, as well as taking little bites from the Charlotte Mason method. I'm really hoping this year will be alot more productive and consistent, as I have struggled a bit to keep things flowing nicely, insha Allaah this year will be better.

I'm sorry for not posting any updates for a while, I've just been busy with life in general, been away recently also to see family. I really do want to start posting again on my blogs, but I feel my life and home needs some organising first, so I can start to think a bit more clearly insha Allaah (God Willing).

So no, I haven't disowned my blogs ;) feel quite sad they've been a bit neglected, but insha Allaah will start posting again soon. x
