What is a word wall you ask?
A word wall is an area near your bulletin board with a list of words that you will help teach your class. There are different words for different themes to your bulletin boards.
How to use them?
Make them memorable: Children learn visually so make it appealing. Make the words colorful.
Make them useful and practical: While the word is posted near the bulletin board you can have your class start their day with writing a sentence using one of the words from your word wall each day.
Make them hands on and your way: Usually children learn doing projects hands on. Make a game using the games. Write your words from your word wall on cards and have each child pick one from a box and use it in a sentence during circle time.
There are many ways you can use word wall words in your lessons. Use your imagination! It’s all up to you, have fun!

The words for this word wall are as follows:
- Laylatul Qadr
We are once again approaching the blessed month of Ramadan, insha Allah.
We have had many interests in our fasting cycle and our arabic weather wheel that we thought to make a version of that for moon phases this year! Here is another way to learn the moon phases with the children, a moon wheel!
How it works:
You print, assemble and cut along the dotted lines only on the cover of the moon wheel leaving just a little attached in the middle so you can lift a flap on each number to reveal the moon phase and discuss it with your class.
This is better printed on card stock.
You can also print on regular copy paper and use a glue stick and attach to cardboard/poster board to make more sturdy.
We can’t wait to see your bulletin boards this year!
We have been away for quite awhile but we are here to remind those who want to put up bulletin boards this year to start planning now. We have posted the links to our bulletin board files below in case you decide you want to use them. Look forward to seeing another year of Ramadan bulletin boards.Borders: three different borders to choose from Board additions :Ramadan moon calendar,fasting day cycle, good deeds chart & ibadah tracker. Board addition: Things that break the fast mobile Mini Board display: Laylatul Qadr Display Stay tuned…more to come, insha Allah.
We told you all that we have been busy! Masha Allah.
We saw how much you all loved the Ramadan moon Calendar that we decided to make a calendar you all could use all year long in your classrooms!
Teaching our children the Hijri months can be fun with this interactive classroom wall calendar.
We have headers,movable numbers in Arabic and the whole calendar template for you to customize and make your own!
We recommend printing everything on cardstock and laminating for durability!
First is the Calendar, you will have to match the pages up after printing! This is what it should look like once you have trimmed some edges and put together.
For the number tiles you can add a piece of velcro so it will be easy to change position each month.
Here is one of the number tiles:
Sample of what the Headers look like:

It’s Been awhile since we have been able to add anything new to the blog! Busy lives! Masha Allah.
In additions to our Arabic Alphabet strip for your classroom, we have also put together a nice sized weather wheel!
This wheel would be put together the same as our fasting wheel. Match the pages up and add your arrow. Laminating can also be a good idea as it would be used daily,insha AllahArabic Weather Wheel Color Arabic Weather Wheel Black & White Enjoy! We cant wait to see what you all come up with, insha Allah!
Every classroom needs an arabic alphabet strip to make our learning areas more interesting.
This will be the first of our Arabic series, stay tuned as we will be adding more, insha Allah until our arabic bulletin board is complete!
