Another TEA-cher gift idea! What’s really cool about this is the hijabi 😉 We have plenty of gifts for teachers as mainstream, but something that’s clearly Muslim is a treat!

Sep 30, 2015 | Ideas for Marking Muharram/Safar with Kids, Muharram/Safar
As we prepare to enter the months of Muharram and Safar, here are some INVALUABLE points for parents and teachers to keep in mind. Please read and share!
Take the first point for example – SO crucial:
“Images of Violence:
It never ceases to amaze me the extent of graphic details Islamic school curriculums, teachers, and speakers provide children when discussing Karbala. Yes, it was a battle and yes it was a tragedy beyond words. However, such violent and graphic details are socially and developmentally inappropriate. Many children struggle to understand topics such as death, loss, and grief. When Islamic school teachers decide to focus on the explicit details of how Ali al-Asghar or Imam Abbas (as) were killed, it can be difficult for children to overcome. You can definitely get the message across that Yazeed and Bani Ummayah were the lowest of the low and enemies of God without describing to a child in graphic details the murder of another child.”

Sep 6, 2015 | Gift, School, Thoughtful Gifts
Last but not least for our thoughtful gift idea series this year is with the same theme of making gifts more meaningful with a message…
These are candles for teachers of Ramadhan classes who dedicated the month to teaching young ones and serving them iftaar first, etc – they read: “A good teacher is like a candle, it consumes itself to light the way for others.”

How about this thoughtful gift for teachers?! So simple and yet so cool 🙂
Aug 3, 2014 | Charity, Eid, Ramadan
At the end of the month, teachers of classes are usually given lots of little presents to say Eid Mubarak and thank you. That is a wonderful wonderful gesture and token of appreciation, but this year some organisers of classes had an even better idea!
They suggested that the children donate on their behalf instead .
The kids and I still felt we wanted to acknowledge them, so we made these little mint books – the pics say it all I hope! They personalised it by decorating the front and then handed them out to their teachers as well as donating in their name too.
P.s. This idea is thanks to pinterest of course – here is the link to the much more professional looking ones!
