KG/1 Islamic Studies Update
This week in Islamic Studies we started class by reading a book about good intentions. In the book the main character made several attempts to do good deeds for his family but failed to complete each one due to various comical mishaps. The moral of the story is that Allah (SWT) knows what’s in our hearts and gives us credit for our good intentions.
To illustrate this lesson I asked the children to write three of their recent good deeds on strips of construction paper and then they linked them together to form a chain. For homework I asked the children to talk to their parents about the good deeds lesson and come up with a list of things that they could do throughout the week at home or at school. I gave them a sheet where they could record their good deeds and mark the days when they complete them. For every good deed that they do, I told them to create a new link and add to their good deed “chain”. IA this will provide an opportunity for you to discuss this concept in greater detail.
Have a great week and I look forward to seeing you all next Sunday.
Joy and Suha
