Memorizing Matching Game

matchingame A pack of cards from the dollar store and cardboard you will have a great matching game!

The children had to name the letter on the yellow box, flip the card over and then name the letter on another yellow box and do the same, if it was a match they could keep it, if not they had to put it back and remember later where the pictures were.

A great way to teach several lessons:

Letter recognition
Names Of Objects
Colors

With a pack of cards you can change up the pictures several times.
You can also change the cards and do this with matching Arabic letters or english alphabet if you want to practice memorizing arabic letters and numbers and english letter recognition

enjoy!!

Circular Journal Writing

homeschoolideas 015

Today we worked with circulars. Okay circulars are cool for several reasons. One you can teach about money, name different foods, and practice reading skills.

Also this was a good way to practice cutting skills.  homeschoolideas 016The boys enjoyed cutting out the foods they wanted to get from the grocery store and glued them in the books. For our oldest son after he put them in his book, he practiced writing by looking at the names of the items and wrote it out next to the picture. homeschoolideas 018For extra fun the next time you go to the grocery store allow children to spot the items on their list and even name the numbers to teach how much foods cost. a great way to teach number recognition.

We talked about health foods too.

So much fun you can do and learn from the grocery store circular

Boys And Cars

Guest Post By: Hafsa Taher

Boys and Cars. Two words that go together like peanut butter and jam. My nephew turned two recently, and given his love for anything that rolls, I decided to work on one for him. Oh, did I mention I had a helper? My niece who’s 5 yrs old.

I came across this awesome tutorial on Pinterest, so we got working. And here’s our end result:

HAFSA1

 

You’ll need:
  • Tissue tubes
  • Paint
  • A lid of some sort to trace the wheels
  • 4 brads per car
  1. Start by painting the tissue tube
  2. cut out the wheels and paint them black
  3. stick your wheels using brad
  4. And don’t forget to seat your drivers in! ;)
Here’s the original tutorial I had found on Pinterest:

P.S: If you liked this craft idea, consider sharing it with others. Because sharing is caring :)

Hafsa Taher is the founder of HafsaCreates.com – Her motto is “Pray, Love, Craft”. When she is not crafting or playing with her niece and nephew, she is Pinterest-ing and day dreaming about her next DIY! Check out her website here: HafsaCreates.com

Word Family Sandwich

We played a game making pretend sandwiches!

Well with one of the children learning to put the sound of words together, we decided to expierment and make one of the pieces of bread the AT family and then in order to add to the sandwich they had to read the words correctly…

Take a look:

wordsandwichyogurt 001

So our 4 yr old has been liking this and once he gets the lettuce mustard and tomato ..he has to add the last piece of bread on top to complete the sandwich lol alhamdulilah he wold pretend to eat it at the end

A lot of the time the children are visual and so this got them excited, we played pretend and practiced some reading

InshaAllah I think we will do this again :)

What do you think? Any ways we could make this better? I’m looking to try this with my 5 yr old, with milk and cookies pictures, each one he gets right he can pretend to dip it in the milk!

They would love that.

The neat thing is, our two year old is catching on to it, he has been reading words alhamdulilah and enjoys sitting in on the lessons. He will practice with them, hmmm saves us work for when he really gets into the lesson!
