The Last 10 days of Ramadhan

We are close to the end of Ramadhan. Subhanallah, how time flies. In teaching the children about the holy month of Ramadhan, almost all learning activities have been tailored to and integrated with Ramadhan theme. We read about Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and the sirah about the night when Al-Quran was sent down; we did our practical solat sunat Terawih; we also hafaz Surah Al-Qadr; and at the same time learned about figures related to Surah Al-Qadr.

Now, let's do some counting here:

1. How many words are there in Surah Al-Qadr?
Answer: 30 words, which is equivalent to 30 juzu' in the Quran.

2. How many letters are there in Surah Al-Qadr?
Answer: 114 letters, which is equivalent to 114 surahs in the Quran.

3.How many letters are there in the word
Answer: 9 letters.

4.How many times the word
is repeated in the surah?
Answer: 3 times. If we add up all the letters 9+9+9 is equals to 27.

The Night of Power is better than a thousand months. Surah Al-Qadr, verse 3.
Let's put our worldly affairs aside and really make the most of this month. Let's seek Allah's Forgiveness and His Mercy and InsyaAllah we will be far removed from the torment of the Hellfire.
Oh Allah! You are the Most Forgiving and Most Gracious. You love to forgive, so please forgive me. Amin.

Parent Tips for Creating Lifelong Readers

I have a passion for teaching kids to become readers, to become comfortable with a book, not daunted. Books shouldn't be daunting, they should be funny, exciting and wonderful; and learning to be a reader gives a terrific advantage. - Roald Dahl
Here at Tadika Alif Ceria, our children are given freedom to choose their favourite magazines to read during recess time. Although it is only for less than 10 minutes a day, the progress is overwhelming, MasyaAllah. We noted improvement in their reading speed, comprehension, speech and self confidence.

Let's start with something interesting for the kids to read, shall we parents? Here are more tips and ideas on how to promote and foster a love for reading:
  1. Read to your child every night
  2. Take turns with other adults to read aloud
  3. Create a library of books in each child’s bedroom
  4. Tell stories to your children
  5. Get your children to tell you stories
  6. Ask other family members to recall stories of family incidents
  7. Share and discuss articles from newspapers and magazines
  8. Read road signs and billboards out loud
  9. Play ‘I spy’ in the car
  10. Listen to audio tapes in the car
  11. Read a recipe together as you cook
  12. Read the movie advertisement together
  13. Write shopping lists together
  14. Organise a library membership for each child
  15. Take advantage of Library School Holiday Programme and Special Events
  16. Encourage children to read the backs of cereal/food packages
  17. Enter competition on the back of cereal/food packages
  18. Share favourite stories over and over
  19. Invent a new ending for a favourite book
  20. Talk books – ask children’s friends about their favourite books
  21. Arrange magazines subscription for each child
  22. Encourage your children to write letters
  23. Get your children to have membership of his/her favourite book store
And last but not least,
If you can read this, thank a teacher. - Anoynomus. 
Have a wonderful, blessed day everyone. Happy reading! ;-)

Look what we did today: Gardening!

July is the healthy, green vegetables month. We learned that:
  1. There are many kind of vegetables.
  2. Vegetables come in many shapes, sizes and colours.
  3. We can buy fresh, canned or frozen vegetables.
  4. Vegetables have different names.
  5. Vegetables can be eaten raw or cooked.
  6. Vegetable is good for our body.
  7. Vegetables need water and sunlight to grow.
 And it's time to grow our own vegetables!

We are ready teachers!
First, put in the soil...
 Is this enough teacher?
