- Shahaadah - I told her Allah is one and Muhammad is our messenger (just asked her to remember that Allah is one!)
- Prayers- no explanations needed
- Fasting - little explanation since she had a basic idea what fasting was during Ramadan last year.
- Zakah - this was tricky. I just told her that we need to share whatever we had with other people who needed it more (key word being: Sharing)
- 5. Hajj - this was hardest but I just told her it was a masjid that all Muslims go to pray at least once in a lifetime.
|After 1 day||54% was remembered.|
|After 7 days||35% was remembered.|
|After 14 days||21% was remembered.|
|After 21 days||18% was remembered.|
|After 28 days||19% was remembered.|
|After 63 days||17% was remembered.|
- Shahaadah - we just found a picture that signifies Allah is one
- Prayers- Picture f people praying
- Fasting - this one we just found a bunch of people eating and put a big X over it.
- Zakah - people giving money.
- Hajj - simply the picture of kaabah

Okay.. the past few fays was horrendous with both GJ and RG being sick and the mommy too.. RG got worse and is currently in recovery mode..
Tried to get her to eat oats this morning and due to tiredness i broke parwnting rule no1: i bribed her... told her she can have a special surprise if she ate her oats porridge.. which she kind of did..
So what followed was RG building her lego aircraft.. with little guidance, she did it! And she is mighty proud of herself...
Thank god she has the love for lego just like mummy.. hahahaha...

|The skill learned in this is to colour within lines|
|She wanted to colour each of the butterfly but decided against it after the first three.|
|After adding a straw, her art is done!|

Hello everyone... a quick way to get your preschooler to practice phonics.. this is what i discovered (by accident)...
While in the car going somewhere (school, grandma's etc) make a game out of phonics! Spot a word like tree.. say out loud 'tree!'
Then stress the phonetic sound of first letter.. 't.. t.. '(just the sound of the letter mind you)
And then ask her to guess what letter makes that sound..
RG said 'T!'
Then let your child choose the next word and you stress the sound of the first letter and make her guess it..
We went on like this for 20 mins.. then she got tired.. this method is just re-inforcing what she learns in a fun way!!
For beginners, try using the leapfrog video alphabet sounds Letter Factory to begin with.. RG found it very engaging! Ill post the link in my fb page..
Or you can just you tube it!

|Such cute sea ceratures!|
|At first we tried using a dropper/spoon to nicely spread the glitter but later found out good ol' dirct sprinkling is still the best.|
|That's RG holding up her final product.|
the next day we finished up the second black mounting board, this time going freestyle art. i'll post up the pic later. both of it residing on the home fridge right now.
