Reading and Writing

We have a calendar in the classroom which I purchased from Staples some time ago. It's bright and colorful and comes with lots of goodies. But I don't have the time or patience to keep up with it when the time comes to change it. It's just not a priority but it's embarrassing when it still says September on the first of November, lol. My husband brought home a nice solution:


New Calendar for the Classroom


It's so much easier to keep up with this one! I still have the weather graphs and the other accessories up but this will save a lot of time, InshaALLAH. I also need to add the Hindi numerals so that they can practice their Arabic counting as well.


My son is doing well with his reading, MashaALLAH and learning new words by the day. We are still doing the alphabet folders and should have the next couple finished soon, InshaALLAH.

Today, we played around with the Scrabble letter tiles. I asked him to put them in alphabetical order and he used the mini chalkboard as a guide. He knows how to sing them in order but I didn't allow him to sing the ABC song as he went along. This frustrated him but I made him finish.

Alphabetical Order

Tomorrow, InshaALLAH, I think we will work with some whole words (three letters) and see how many he can figure out....

In other news, the illegible handwriting issue is being resolved, InshaALLAH. We are doing a unit study on the animal kingdom and classification and it has some nice copywork pages for my daughter.

I made her go over it several times to correct the punctuation mistakes and saw her using this:

As salaam alaikum,

Where do the erasers go in the house? We can't keep those things for anything.

Wa 'alaikum as salaam, Sis.

May ALLAH make things easy for you and your family, AMEEN.

In our house, it's the sharpened pencil that eludes us. Or the pencil with a good eraser, lol.

Take care,
wa salaam,
