Wudhu Lapbook

Wudhu Cover

My 4 year old daughter had shown interest in learning how to make wudhu properly. I thought what a great way to teach her by using a lapbook for her reference, masha Allah it worked!

First section of the lapbook is the Bismillah Puzzle which was great fun making but I’m sure much more fun for my daughter to color, masha Allah.

I simply created this by finding the right image I was happy with and editing it. I then found a puzzle template and made it transparent in psp and placed it over the image. Voile the puzzle was ready for print.

Here is the file for the Bismillah puzzle: Bismillah Puzzle File

My daughter colored it after I printed it out. I used regular copy paper although I am sure a heavy cardstock might be easier. After she colored it I then glued it on to half a file folder for stability ( I didn’t have cardstock at the time so I improvised, lol)

Cut the pieces and your puzzle is finished!

Here is the envelope we made freehand, no template although I am sure there are some out there. We just used a piece of construction paper and folded it half way to fit the section of the lapbook.

Our Next section was the Wudhu Sequence Card Game. Again, this was a fun one and I think the more hands on the better for young children. My Daughter still plays with this!

I again found images I was pleased with online. I edited them and printed them on regular copy paper. This one is another good one to print on cardstock for stability since the lil ones will be handling them alot. I just glued them on a half a file folder again, lol. I couldn’t wait to go to the store and buy cardstock since I was so excited to get it finished for my lil one to play with.

We freehanded a pocket to hold the Cards. I know there are templates for folders, but I just wanted to be sure that mine was big enough to hold the cards.

Okay, now for a little comedy. Our next part of the lapbook was What Nullifies the wudhu, or in more simple terms “make wudhu after” section.

My pictures may seem a little graphic or even offensive in a way, but as I said earlier I believe children learn with more visual things. Please take no offense if you see it to be that way or if you look at it the way I do…Have a chuckle or two..Teehee!

If you would like the file for this one I first must say, mine are drawings in the picture, but I did make one from my computer that is similar. Here is the file: nullify-wudhu file
 
Now, we are at a part that most don’t teach until the children are older. I thought why not, young children have a larger capacity of learning than we realize. Tayammum or dry wudhu. What to make wudhu with if you have no water.

Now just for reinforcing the steps of wudhu and the proper order we made a flap book with the different steps of wudhu but a little more broken down and I captioned it to read to my daughter each time and have her show me that step.  Here is the file in which I used images from. This is a book made from another sister, but I only cut the images out and pasted them in a flap book as you can see in the picture. I am sure you can probably use the book if you would rather do so.

The last part is the “After Wudhu we Pray” section. I used a coloring page I found and just printed it out, had my daughter color it and then I cut out each section of children praying.

Here is the file for the children praying: Children Praying coloring page file

The rug the children are praying on I actually got off a wonderful homeschooling/Islamic website that I refer to all of the time when teaching my children. May Allah Reward That Sister with Much Good in this Life and the Hereafter. Ameen. 

Here is her site: http://www.talibiddeenjr.com/

I actually found the prayer rugs on her ramadan sister site but thought I would reference her direct site and you can navigate through it. She has many beneficial teaching tools. Masha Allah, but here is the file for the rugs: prayer-rugs file

This lapbook was so much fun for my daughter. She loves walking around showing her siblings and her father or even anyone who comes to visit. She is so proud of herself for putting it all together on her own. Having 4 other siblings can prove some difficulty in finding time alone with one parent so this really helped her feel special and she learned on top of it. Alhamdulilah!

Can’t wait to start our next lapbook insha Allah!
