Ramadan Lapbook 1430

Ramadan Lapbook10

 

The last days of Ramadan are here and our last craft for Ramadan will be our Lapbook.

I said I wasn’t going to do one this Ramadan since I have the new baby and lapbooks can be time consuming,but when Umm Ibrahim asked all of us ummies out there if anyone would be doing a lapbook…I thought….if I find some extra time I will put something together for the little ones,insha Allah.

Guess what? I found the time,Alhamdulilah!

This lapbook is a much smaller version of the traditional lapbooks. I found a site where a woman makes what she calls “tot books” which are just a smaller version of a lapbook.  If you are interested in visiting her site to get ideas it is here: Tot Books

The cover of our lapbook is simple, we just pasted a picture of a Masjid on front that I had lil missy color Here is where I found the picture of the Masjid: Masjid Coloring Page I also used a simple color in font here is the file for that here: Ramadan1430 The Font is so fun, the name of it is Cheri liney font which you can find for free here: Cheri Liney Font

 

ramadan lapbook11 

The entire layout of the lapbook. This one is so simple. You just take one file folder and cut it down just a little bit and fold the two side to the middle as you would a normal sized lapbook, like I said it’s just a miniature sized lapbook really.

 Ramadan Lapbook12

This is really my favorite part of the lapbook. The Date bowl pocket holding date shaped cards.

Ramadan Lapbook13

The cards have lines to write a hadith about dates and there is a bonus card of a lil Muslim boy eating dates coloring.

The idea of this lapbook was more so for all the younger children I have and teaching about some of the more simple aspects of Ramadan, such as breaking fast with dates. Here is the file for the date bowl here: Dates Bowl

The older girls have done their crafts at the beginning of the month and have focused more on studies I have put together for them so I thought I would treat the little ones to the lapbook, and how much fun they had! Alhamdulilah for allowing me to find the time to finish off our crafts with this Lapbook. My 2,4 and 5 yr old all love it, perhaps we should have made more than one? *smile*

Ramadan Lapbook15 

The R-A-M-A-D-A-N pull out tab, teaches the little ones to spell Ramadan, insha Allah.

Here is the file for the Ramadan Spelling: Ramadan spelling tabs

 

Ramadan Lapbook5

Mini Book on Zakaat Ul-Fitr

Ramadan Lapbook6

Inside page of the mini book. Has Tracers to help with spelling and writing,insha Allah.

Ramadan Lapbook7

Another page of the Zakaat Ul-Fitr mini book. I talked to them about what we give for Zakaat Ul-Fitr and when it is to be given, masha Allah they understood well. Here is the file for the minibook: Zakaat mini book

Ramadan Lapbook20

Here is the math of the Lapbook, it’s never too early! I showed them how to measure a saa’ and made cards of hands cupped together to show them  how it is to be measured.

Ramadan Lapbook21

This can be a addition or multiplication activity. I asked my little ones to count the cards if one person gave zakaat ul-fitr then two and so on so forth. They liked it! Masha Allah.

Here is the file for this here: Zakaat Math

Ramadan Lapbook17

Here is the moon phases section of the lapbook.

Ramadan Lapbook19

The moon phase cards

Ramadan Lapbook18

Moon phase cards again, I showed them the different phases of the moon on the computer. We talked a bit about what it looks like and what moon we seek for the coming of Ramadan. They are such smart little sponges,masha Allah. I had the older two put the cards in order from the first phase to the last, so of course I had to have two sets of cards one for them and one for the little one ( my 2 yr old) I made his matching/concentration game. He seems to like those,masha Allah.

Here is where I found the flashcards: Glaskow Science Centre

Here is the pocket for the moon cards here: Moon Pocket

small_10

I cannot say enough about how talented all the sisters are on the forum. Please visit them and take a look at their graphics. They work hard and share their graphics free of charge, Alhamdulilah. May Allah Reward them with Good,Ameen!

Insha Allah, I pray you all have a good Eid and that All of your fasts will be accepted as they were only for Allah. Ameen.

Enjoy the lapbook and feel free to use the files, they are here for you insha Allah.

Ahhhh….so we did a lapbook on Ramadan around the time of Ramadan that I thought I would share with you.

This was a timely project and I actually had 4 of my 5 children participate in this one. Masha Allah.

I used a wonderful site from a sister who also shared.  Here is her site so you can also use her printouts if you like: http://raisingmuslims.wordpress.com/2008/08/12/ramadhan-lapbook-pics-printouts/

May Allah Reward this sister with much good in this life and the hereafter for sharing with us, Ameen!

command-to-fast

The Command to Fast flip circle book

Okay, I actually found this printout on : http://tjramadan.talibiddeenjr.amanahwebs.com/

It was just a print out page and I just cut out each section into circles and added it on to colored contruction paper. You will also see that many of my Islamic printouts will come from www.talibideenjr.com as it is one of the most resourceful sites for Islamic/homeschool teaching out on the internet. May Allah reward the sister with good for all her good deeds in this life and the hereafter, Ameen!

fasting-cycle

This shows the fasting cycle as well what breaks the fast,and who are exempted from fasting, the fast of a travels and ways to travel

In this one, we actually drew our pictures out to make them more visible and more hands on for the kids. My older 2 girls actually did the “what breaks the fast”, and “who are exempted from fasting” as well as the fasting cycle. My 3 yr old son colored the ways of travel and fast of a traveler. Masha Allah.

The cover to Hijri calendar

My eldest 2 girls added to this one. We went a step ahead and just added the name of each Hijri month as well as it’s meaning.

surah-al-qadr

Surah Al Qadr

This was a nice printout to help the children learn Surah Al Qadr masha Allah.

We also added one more part to this lapbook to make it a little more hands on. We made a suhoor game from a site that a sister shared her printouts with us as well. I just modified the game a bit by making it bigger, and actually handmaking it but everything came from her site.

Here is her page:  Ramadan Planner Family

May Allah Reward this sister for sharing her wonderful teaching resources with much Good in this life and the hereafter, Ameen.

The name of the Game is Knowledge Quest. The game board I actually made out of 2 file folders and just colored it in. This was my craft of the lapbook (*smile*)

game pieces and game cards

The game cards are actually made out of construction paper, I must say cardstock would probably work better if this is going to be handled alot. I plan on eventually laminating mine. I just made a little pocket and just embelished the front with the name of the game and a couple designs. I then put the question on the back of the pocket and there is a different colored piece of paper in the pocket which you pull out and it reveals the answer.

game pieces knowledge quest

Game pieces approx. 3in

The game pieces we made out of Crayola modeling clay. They have many colors and the clay is actually very easy to work with and doesn’t crumble when it dries like other clays do. You can also color these clays which make it easy as well. We store the game pieces in a sandwich baggie and punched a little hole in it and tied it to the side binding of the lapbook.

To add it to the lapbook we just cut a half a file folder and added it to the back of the lapbook as a large pocket file which worked great and I must say it doesn’t make the lapbook to bulky either.

Enjoy this one!

 Overall this was such a nice project to do with the children especially with all the different ages I had to work with Alhamdulilah. We did this lapbook in about a week to a week and a half time. It helped the older girls from thinking about being hungry while fasting because they were enjoying themselves masha Allah. They all learned so much from this past Ramadan, Alhamdulilah.
