Ramadan Word Wall

sample bulletin board

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!

New: Moon Wheels

Ramadan 1434

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!

Ramadan Bulletin Board Additions!

Na’am! Not only did we have Ramadan Borders to offer this year, but we also have a few additions insha Allah!

We want you to get the most out of your Ramadan, but we also want our children to as well.

Bulletin boards are an attractive way to teach our children as we already know.

This year we have upsized our Bulletin board additions!

First, we like to teach our kids about the phases of the moon. This is an important lesson as we have to sight the  moon in order to start and end Ramadan ,insha Allah.

How about a calendar to track the days of Ramadan and the phases of the moon?

 This is an interactive calendar that not only does that, but also has fun moon facts to help familiarize your child with moon knowledge,insha Allah. Have your child color the calendar in and have fun reading the facts and hadith!

There are a few different versions of this calendar

Arabic numbers:Ramdan Moon Calendararabic
English numbers:Large Ramadan Calendar
Arabic/English numbers:Ramdan Moon Calendar English/Arabic
Next is the fasting day cycle, another interactive addtions to your bulletin board. This is really a good aid for younger children who do not yet fast. This cycle takes us through some of the actions a fasting person performs throughout their day. Your student can change the cycle as each action has been performed, insha Allah.

This is the black and white version of the cycle. This is how it will look once it’s assembled.

Here are the two pieces separate so you can see how it all comes together:

The bottom half where the child will turn to see the different action performed throughout a fasting day,insha Allah

This is the top part with the window section that will display each action as the wheel is turned. To connect the pieces you will use a brass fastener.

While assembling you will have to match the pieces together and will also have to cut some excess off to have it really truly match. We took pictures to show you how it does in fact come together, so don’t get discouraged! *smile*

Here is the cycle after it has been colored in:

There are two different versions of this Fasting cycle

Click here to download the Colored version: Fasting cycle color
Charts, Charts, Charts! We also have charts to add to your Ramadan bulletin boards this year. How much more fun can we make it?
Interactive charts!
Our first chart is the Good Deed Chart,which will track the good deeds your child does during the blessed month of Ramadan.
This chart is more for practice while our children are young. It is not a “show off” type thing, but more of an encouragement or teaching them while they are young to practice and perform as many good deeds as they can, insha Allah.

This is what the chart should look like once assembled,insha Allah.

There are a few different versions of this chart.

For one child click here to download: Single Child Good Deed Chart
For three children click here to download: good deeds 3 child 
for 6 children click here to download: Six Children
For 1 child black and white click here to download: 1 Child Black and white
The next chart is the Ibadah Tracker which will help your child increase their worship during the month of Ramadan and insha Allah keep up on it!

Here is the tracker assembled.

There are also a few different versions of this tracker

Ramadan Ibadah Tracker Older
Ramadan Ibadah Tracker Younger
Ramadan Ibadah Tracker Younger Black and white
Here are also a couple trackers that can be used outside of Ramadan, insha Allah.
Monthly Ibadah Tracker Single Child
Monthly Ibadah Tracker 3 Children
We hope you enjoy using the files and making your bulletin board this year. Please do share if you make one this year!

Du’a Bulletin Board

Du’a is important to us as Muslims since it’s a form of worship.

We have found a great idea to reinforce/teach children to make du’a frequently through out the day, insha Allah.

We have two different layouts/board displays to share with you to help you get those wheels turning,insha Allah.

Layout 1

The first display is the traditional bulletin board layout with border that surrounds the board and contents to fill the inner board with the beneficial reminders and tools to help keep on track with du’a,insha Allah.

 We have also included the files to the specific Islamic Bulletin Boards to make building your board much easier.

 Use some or all, it’s up to you!

File for Du’a is Worship Header: banner2
Border accent file: Accent decos du’a
File for Best time for Making Du’a: Best time for making Du’a
File for Reminders for Making Du’a: Reminders for making du’a

The Daily Du’a tracker and the Du’a cards at the bottom of the bulletin board. The du’a cards are in a clear pocket made out of plastic protective sheet covers that you can buy at your local office supply store or another idea can be to use plastic storage bags if you want the same look.

File for the border:  du’a border2
File for the Tracker: Du’a Tracker
File for Black and white Du’a cards: Du’a Cards text Black & White
File for Colored Du’a Cards: Du’a Cards text Color

 Layout 2

Umm Ibrahim here, this is our version of the bulletin board. I am so not as artistic as my bud, Umm Abdul Basir, so this is a much simpler, less artistic version, but masha Allah, the board is in use and has been so handy right from the start!

I haven’t been able to get a lot of school supplies yet after our last move (this summer), and am needing to conserve on the printer ink for the present, so I opted not to include the wonderful border.  Its hard to see but the items I have included are as follows:

The awesome duaa cards (so many uses: matching activity, flashcards, memory aids, so do check those out even if you don’t do a board

Reminders for making duaa (in the top middle). We make it a point to try to make duaas in the last hour of Jumuah (Friday) and so this is a handy reminder.  We don’t make the duaas together, but I will call the kids and tell them time to make duaas.  So now, I have this section of the board to quickly go over before they go off on their own to make duaas. One thing I has started to do, was to have them take a quick little “minute” just at some point of the day (like in the evening) and sit down and make duaa. So they look at the board to make sure they do as many of the things in the reminder section as they can.

Best times for making duaa

Duaa Tracker

Duaas to make – In this section, I have the little scroll on which we can jot down duaas that we want to make.  In addition to the scroll, we have some premade mini scrolls which have a picture and a generic duaa (such as heal _______; reminding us to make duaa for someone sick; preserve our health, give us _______________; give us Jannah, etc. These were made to encourage us to not just make duaa for material things, I guess you can call them “dua’a prompts

Dua is Worship Banner

And that’s our board, masha Allah.

It really helps to keep us on track as well as make the drab wall more appealing, masha Allah.

Umm Ibrahim
