Sister Shimaa’s Eid Tajweed Quiz for Sisters

Sister Shimaa led us through a Tajweed quiz that she created based on the lessons she has taught us thus far.  Here is an online version of her quiz so you can test yourself. 

Tajweed Quiz 1  

We had great fun completing the quiz together. Congratulations to Sister Alia and Sister Mai and their children for winning the competition. They each received a lovely gift package from Sister Shimaa. 

Children’s Focus: Smiling

Look at the picture, what do you think we will talk about today?



Dialogue


Can you show us your happy faces?

A smile is always on your face when you are happy! 

What things make you happy?


Can you show us your angry/sad faces?

A frown is always on your face when you are angry/sad!

What things make you angry/sad?



Mom’s make a happy face, then Mom’s make an angry face, 

What makes mom’s angry?

What makes mom’s happy?


Children, which do you like to see, the happy face or the angry face?


Hurray for Baba Ali Season 2 Anger Management

 



I SMILE 😊 - Zaky Song


Each child was sent to find something that makes them smile and then present to everyone.


Meanwhile, Sister Winnie read the following:

Also when I see my child smiling at others I will provide positive reinforcement by saying to him, “I like the way you smiled at …..” or when he smiles at me I will say, “I like the way you smiled at me. It makes me feel happy.”

Make a Hadith box  

Use a cardboard box or tin, decorate it if needed, fill it with slips of paper, each one has a hadith written on it. 

Every week, have a hadith session with your children. They remove one slip of paper and then the mom’s read and explain the hadith. For the entire week, the hadith is reinforced with crafts and activities. 




Sister Bana’s Eid Video

Scavenger Hunt


Sisters were asked to prepare a list of 5 items for our scavenger hunt. These items could be things that can be found in any home. Though their descriptions can be creative. We used the ideas on this link for inspiration: https://www.weareteachers.com/scavenger-hunts/

A bit (lots) of confusion ensued while sending, sharing the lists and finding the items, but alhamdulillah, in the end, each family was able to find all or most of their items. We all enjoyed seeing the sisters and children present their items.

Starting out, we will be reading "The Bible, The Qu'ran and Science". We will be meeting once a month to discuss. The first meeting will be on Wednesday May 17th at 10am. We will be meeting at Eastern Stars Centre in Mississauga (5777 Cooper's Ave).
If you are interested in joining us, or have any questions, please feel free to contact me on this email address meganmbarclay@gmail.com. Please let me know if you're interested so we can keep you updated on any changes.

Look forward to seeing you there, inshAllah!

  • SISTERS TALK
We started to read an article about The Battle of Tabuk, but Sister Maryam pointed out
that the article was infact biased and left out some important facts.  So instead we
discussed the importance of using reliable sources of information.  Also, we discussed
how some stories (legends)  can be woven into our history.  While these stories  are
neither endorsed nor denied  they cannot be used for making Islamic Laws and Rulings.
A very good book for learning the History of Our Beloved Prophet is:
