Quran Gameshow Event

Quran Gameshow Event

Alhamd the Quran Gameshow event came and went with a bang!

Here are the details 

The 4 to 6 year old group:

The session started by describing the powers of the H.Quran and reading a story called ‘Q-Man and the Cat’ by A14 Publication.

The 4-6 year olds then engaged in an interactive Quran themed game show. The children were divided into four groups, they chose a name for their team and were asked to answer and perform interactive tasks (email xtjannahx@gmail.com for a copy of the questions and score sheet)

Questions included rolling Play dough on Arabic letters flashcards, matching animals mentioned in the H.Quran to their Arabic names, sequencing the Arabic letters, completing a Quran word puzzle and much more. All teams performed brilliantly well taking away lots of new interesting information about the H. Quran!

The 7 to 9 year old group:

The children were separated into groups of 5 and set about completing 6 tasks.

1.Placing the Islamic months of the year in order
2. Matching the names of Allah in English and Arabic
3. Matching foods from the Quran in English and Arabic
4. Placing the names of the imams in order
5. Answering basic questions involving numbers in the Quran
6. Matching up the prophets with the Heavenly books
They all scored very highly!

Then we had a quiz, with all 5 groups competing against each other. They received a token for every right answer. When there were no more tokens left, they could take a token from a competitors table!! At the end, all the tokens were added up and put on the scoreboard. The winning team was Red!

The children had great fun and worked really hard with their teams, it was great too see everybody having a chance to join in.

The 10+ year old group:

The children were treated to a good old fashioned game show with buzzers and all! They were split into 4 groups and each group had a chance to play each other. The top 2 then went on to the finals where they played Who Wants to be a Winner. Lots of fast fingers and fast answers won the day!

Familiarising our children with the Holy Quran – Idea 10: Sura Bags

Familiarising our children with the Holy Quran – Idea 10: Sura Bags

I had mentioned last week that there were some very cool ideas out there in terms of interactive ways of teaching.

Here is another one which I think is SUPER – I’m sure you’ve heard of Story Bags, well this is a Sura Bag!

Each Sura has it’s own bag, and within are little bits and bobs related to what the Sura is all about, the lessons within, and even the benefits of reciting it.

For an example, check out the different objects in the Suras pictured in more detail. You can write what it exactly is on the back to allow the children to explore and learn on their own, or choose to do it in circle time also!

This was done by the same blogger I shared with you some time ago:https://buzzideazz.com/islamic-montessori-material-blog/

Here is one on Sura Jummah:

And one on Surah Quraysh:

Familiarising our children with the Holy Quran – Idea 9: Crafts and Projects

Familiarising our children with the Holy Quran – Idea 9: Crafts and Projects

Crafts and projects are a great way to incorporate Quranic learning.

  • Check out one girl’s awesome Science project 🙂

“FZ was assigned a Science Project (pictured above) to do for school over the Easter break. She had to observe an outdoor location such as a wood, lake, farm etc. and spot signs of Spring, record them by taking photographs and present in an interesting manner. Together we had a wonderful time exploring a lake and a local nature reserve for flowers, blossom, catkins, frogspawn, tadpoles, dragonflies, caterpillars, butterflies etc. To present our findings we created a diorama – a miniature version of the lake and surrounds inside a box! We used photographs, 3d stickers, acrylic paints, cut out shapes, blue modelling clay for the lake and dabbed on shimmery blue glitter paint for a more ‘watery’ effect.

We also discussed and included the beautiful Verse 5 of Suratul Hajj: ‘You see the earth barren and lifeless, but when we pour down rain on it, it is stirred, it swells, and puts forth every kind of beautiful growth in pairs.’ FZ proudly presented her project to her class and explained the Qur’anic verse too.”

  • Here’s another project they did:

“We recently worked on this activity for Show and Tell at madressa. We built up a scene of Prophet Ibrahim as and Prophet Ismaeel as praying to Allah to accept their efforts in building the Kaaba, using different cut out pictures on card, layered in front of one another. We even put in a pretty musalla for them to sit on using a cut out from some Arabic perfume packaging! FZ added on star and flower stickers to represent Allah’s revelations and blessings pouring down and a silhouette of herself raising her hands in prayer too. The focus of this craft was to serve as a visual reminder for FZ to always strive to do her best to please Allah swt with her actions and choices, and to memorise, recite and apply the dua of Prophet Ibrahim as mentioned in Suratul Baqarah 2:127 – ‘O our Lord, accept this from us, surely You are the All-Hearing and All-Knowing…’”

  • The crafts in this Islamic Values book are also an awesome way to reinforce learning in a creative and fun way, and which really helps drive the message of the verses home!
  • Check out what one mum did to teach her children about Surat an Nahl 🙂

Familiarising our children with the Holy Quran – Idea 8: Share stories from the Quran

Familiarising our children with the Holy Quran – Idea 8: Share stories from the Quran

  • Here is what one mum said:

“My girls love prophet stories so when we sit down to eat, I tell them a prophet story as we eat (this also gets them to eat quicker too cos I’ll pause and only continue once they’ve had 3 more bites ?). We’ve covered Prophets Adam, Nuh, Ibrahim, Yusuf, Musa, Suleiman, Yunus, Isa, Muhammed. Then when they read Qur’an to me and we repeatedly comeacross a prophet’s name e.g. Adam with Shaytan, Musa with “khamees”, etc, I’ll open my English Qur’an app and read the meaning with them.”

  • And another mum shared this also:

“We go through the stories of the Prophets and other stories from the set ‘the best Quranic stories’ then after finishing each book, we look up the verses mentioned and make a mark to remind us of the story as we recite the Quran.”

  • To help you get started, here is a folder full of Quran stories in PPT form, put together by Sister Fatima Jaffer.
  • This app looks great too!
