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!
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!
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.
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.
This was a nice printout to help the children learn Surah Al Qadr masha Allah.
This one was a coloring page I found and had my 4 yr old daughter color ( she enjoyed being a part *smile*)
If you would like the coloring page here it is: iftar2masjid
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*)
The entire board

Finish of the game
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 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.
