My name is.. free customised printable activity

Assalaamu alaykum, hey everyone!

This is a free printable for you to add to your child’s learning folder. It’s a fun and engaging way to have them learn how to spell and practice writing their name.

Just fill in the quick form below and I will email you back with the document customised to your childs name, ready for you to print, laminate, and attach velcro to.

I offer two options, option one is as you see my daughters, who is new to learning the alphabet:

I have the letters of her name under each place for her to match to.

Option two, I can make it without letters on the sheet.  Your child can work independantly spelling their name by matching the colours.

Fill in the simple form below with your email and childs name and I will email you back with the customised document 🙂

Enjoy!

Preschool Activities Learning Folder

Assalaamu alaykum! Hey 👋

I’m so excited to finally be sharing this preschool learning folder full of activities to help teach your little ones!

This folder is going to be my main resource with teaching my 2 year old.  We’ve already got started with it and she’s picking up so much.  She squeels with excitement everytime she sees me get it out!  I’ve gotten lots of inspiration for this by looking at the many other learning folders available online… and then created this with my own style and idea of activities.

 

The 15 pages included in this free download:

  • Colourful front cover
  • Basmalah
  • Lowercase alphabet
  • Numbers 1-10
  • First colours
  • First shapes
  • Tangram puzzles – house and boat
  • Counting 1-5 match the number to the quantity
  • Counting 6-10 match the number to the quantity
  • With buttons – Match the quantity to the number 1-5
  • With buttons – Match the quantity to the number 6-10
  • More Colours
  • Animals on the farm
  • Opposites – big and small

The last page is my little tip on how you can use each page in different ways to maximise the learning from it bi idhnillah.

 

You will need:

  • Paper & printer, ofcourse
  • Laminator and laminating sheets
  • Velcro dots (clear velcro dots are the best but I actually used white and it’s not that bad if you can’t get ahold of the clear ones)
  • Lots of time to cut

My theme for our homeschooling this first half of the year is “Rainbow”, so I’ve incorporated lots of colour.

Here’s my toddler showing me the “big car” on our opposites sheet:

There are many more pages that I’m in the process of making, they will be available seperately organised by subject in shaa Allaah.. so look out for those if you’re wanting to make a FULL folder!

Preparing My 2 Year Olds Curriculum

Assalaamu alaykum, hey!

Today I’m going to talk about why and how I’m preparing to teach my almost two and a half year old.

Why?

She has recently been showing alot of interest in the activities I do with older brother and sister, wanting to participate and repeating everything.  She also mostly goes for the puzzles, sorts her toys when playing and has also been getting bored quite easily. That is her cue that she’s ready to start learning!  Why hold her back? By making it interactive, fun and engaging she’ll have so much fun expanding her skills.

How?

We are going to start with the basics, going over her colours, the alphabet, shapes, related activities and sensory play, etc. I want to give her a headstart in reading, math and Qur’an memorisation.  My other main goal is to help her with her English speech development as we are a bilingual household. All of our daily activities will be play or craft based.

My Inspiration

There are so many home educating mothers with amazing set ups, some of my favourites are Jady A on YouTube, Mamateachesme, and amuslimhomeschool.

Graphic design is one of my hobbies and I love making my own homeschool resources, so expect to see lots uploaded free over the next few months in shaa Allaah.

 

What age did you start teaching your child?  Or are planning to start? What are some of your favourite resources?
