Yesterday, we took down all of her work that was displayed on the bedroom wall and stuck it in two large scrapbooks. I also printed out pictures from the blog of activities we had conducted together and stuck them in as well. She helped me take them off the wall and stick them in and it reminded her of lessons we had done together. However, now her walls are bare and are screaming to be filled again. She is very proud of her two scrap books and wants to show any visitors when they come around. For me, it is a good way to organise displays and to keep work that she has put a lot of effort in and also allowing space for new 6 weeks blocks of ‘school’. I have planned for us to make a number daisy chain and will insha’Allah make it extra big to cover up all that white wall paint!
Bob books are great! I ordered them almost a year ago and my daughter read one all by herself yesterday, masha’Allah. The 6 weeks of literacy lessons have paid off as she is actually reading, alhamdulillah! It was a simple book. It reads:
Mat. Sam. Mat sat. Sam sat. Mat sat on Sam. Sam sat on Mat. Mat sat. Sam Sat. The End. I asked her to read it to her Abi to show him that she can actually do it. He couldn’t believe his eyes. His three and a half year old reading, mashaAllah. And he said something which really made me feel happy: ‘You’re doing a really good job.’ For me, 9 months pregnant, exhausted, recently attacked for homeschooling my daughter by another sister – it really made my evening. And indeed ALL praise is due to Allah (Swt).
