OUR ALLAH LAPBOOK
Age level 3-6
We made an Allah Lapbook some time ago… My main focus was to teach the kids that “ALLAH LOVES US”
The cover was made out of orange Manila folders bound together like a book. I had some wallpaper border lying around I used it for the border and Lil Muallim # 1 helped with the coloring.
We reviewed Surah Ikhlas and made a four flap square to fill in essence of the Surah
On another accordion flap was added for the Kalimah. One side of the accordion shows the Kalimah in Arabic and the back side shows its translation. We are using this lapbook as an Islamic concepts SIGHT WORD tool.
Allah gave us Quran flap was made in an accordion fold in the shape of a book. The flap says:
Allah gave Quran to Rasulullah (sallalaho Alaihi Wasallan) for us. the salawat are stamped with the salawat stamp from Learning Roots “Noble Seal”
Allah Loves to Forgive
Children in their innocence, sometimes get really upset with themselves when something goes wrong or they make a mistake…. Infact as adults we sometimes mishandle the situation and make them feel even worse.
This is an excellent to opportunity to remind them and ourselves that……….. the important thing is that we realize the mistake and ask for Allah’s help and try our best not to do it again…..because if we take a step towards Him He runs towards us…..as He loves us more than 70 mothers……..Subhanallah!
A story book that we love and which we keep going back to for this concept is “A boy not too far away” by Salafi publications
This leads to the favourite part of our lapbook…..the hearts!!
The heart on the right says “Don’t be sad” and the heart on the left says “Smile”………..Really gets the kids excited Alhumdolillah!
See pictures below to see what’s inside the Don’t be Sad flaps.
Don’t be sad when something goes wrong or you make a mistake just……..
Smile Allah Loves You
Here is our heart with a Smile
Here’s a nasheed I made to go along with it, on the Barney tune. You can find some different style printable for it below. You can choose from Beautiful or Cute
I Love Allah, Allah Loves me Craft
This is a a hot favourite and kids may want to keep go onmaking copies if this….if you ask me THAT’S GREAT!!!
The hearts were actually printed by applying red paint to the sides of their fists. One with the right hand the other with the left. 🙂
We will be adding more things to it as we go… so I will keep updating this post.
Allah Puzzle Game
The inside of the lapbook is entirely dedicated to sight words , related to the main topic as well as 2 Allah spelling puzzles. One in English the other in Arabic.
Allah’s name is actually a very easy to teach through sight. Just having the visual around makes it easy or the kids to build the spelling themselves.
Currently the puzzles are kept on Lil Muallimah’s shelves as an activity and will be added onto the Lapbook as components as follows.
Our Allah English Puzzle: is simply letters cards to be put in order.
Our Allah Arabic Puzzle: is to be built with felt. Felt actually sticks very well on felt, and is a very sensorial way of making learning how to write Allah in Arabic
Surah Ikhlas Flash Cards
Surah Ikhlas through flash cards. Thinking of making flash cards for each word of this short surah on an index cards for Lil Muallim # 3. This idea is actually an informal way of introducing different forms of the Arabic alphabet, promote reading readiness for the lil ones and sequencing as well as a way to discuss tajweed rules for the older ones.
