Animals in Winter Lapbook

Samira finished this lapbook recently. I found the templates by chance in the Google search engine when I was looking for materials on hibernation. You can download them HERE. It’s a nice, simple lapbook for teaching what animals do during the winter months. Some animals hibernate, some migrate and others simply adapt to the snow and freezing […]

Monster Cookies

My nearly 10 month old daughter, Zeynab seems to have reverted to being night owl these past few weeks. As you can imagine I’m not getting a great deal of sleep so today I decided we’d do something simple and creative. It’s been ages since we did any sort of baking/cooking so this morning while […]

Jealousy and Envy Unit Study

You can now download our Belief in the Angels Lapbook. I was inspired to make this lapbook after seeing a wonderful […]

Arabic Letters (Huroof) Bingo

The sister has prepared a set of four Bingo grid cards displaying a random mixture of Arabic letters on each card. I printed all four cards and laminated […]

Arabic Letter Position Cards

  This is another great idea from Umm An-Numan’s blog – A Muslim Child is Born. The sister has created these great picture cards that help teach children the Arabic letter positions (initial, medial and final). I recently bought myself a laminator … how I’ve homeschooled so far without one I’ll never know … and now […]
