Wrapping Up Earlier Than Expected

Without intentionally planning to, we've almost finished our school work for the year, AlhamduLILLAH. My daughter has finished her math book and is just about done with language arts. Science will be continued throughout the summer, InshaALLAH and Islamic Studies is ongoing as well. This has given us some extra time and she has finally learned to crochet, AlhamduLILLAH.



She still has eight books left to read from her list of fifty, but she says that she's run out of reading materials. I checked her shelf and saw that there are quite a few books left, but I think that they may be a little too advanced for her, so I might have to run over to the library soon, InshaALLAH.

I am planning to give her a gift for completing the list of 50 books - she started in August and was given a full year to finish, so I figured that I had lots more time to think of something. She's 6 and pretty easy to please but I want something inexpensive and just for her. Any ideas?

Alhamdulillah on finishing! Maybe as a treat you could take your daughter out to lunch or for some ice cream, just you and her. It shouldn't be too expensive, and your time is the best thing you could give her.

How about a gift card for a bookstore?

Wa 'alaikum as salaam Sisters,

JazakILLAH Khairin for your suggestions, both very good ones. InshaALLAH I will have to decide...maybe do both, lol.


Take care,

This is what makes homeschooling amazing. MashaAllah. All the best for the rest of the year too!

Nakia said...

Salaam Sis,

you're right - it is amazing!

I appreciate your kindness and all the best to you as well :)

Take care,

MashaAllah sis! Well done to her!

Why don't you give her some money and allow her to choose. That is what we are going to do for R as she has completed her hifdh of juz amma (she has chosen that instead of her party). She feels really 'big' and important - lol

Umm Raiyaan said...

Oh and did you choose the 50 books for her?

Nakia said...

Salaam Umm Raiyaan,

MashaALLAH for R as well! That's quite an accomplishment.

M might like the money idea as well - I could set her loose in the craft store or the book store and see what happens, lol.

Take care,
wa salaam,
Nakia

Salaam Sis,

I missed that last comment! I did pick the books for her.
