Islamic Character Education for Kindergarten: Kindness

Assalamu alaikum,

I've gone off and gotten this harebrained idea to start another blog for Islamic Character Education insha'Allah. I don't know when I'll even have time to actually do this but we'll see insha'Allah.

What I'd like to do is take ayaat from the Quran, ahadith from the Sunnah, etc. and design lesson plans and activities to accompany each character trait insha'Allah. I hope to make materials for Kindergarten up to grade 4 insha'Allah but this is an ambitious project that I'm not actually sure I can do (I may even end up deleting the other blog....waallahu alim). Alhamdulillah, a knowledgeable sheikh has agreed to help me by checking my work to make sure, Islamically, it is accurate but it is still a lot of work.

But....the first trait I've started with is kindness. I'll probably end up posting the character traits material here on A Muslim Child is Born (for Kindergarten only) and on the new blog, Islamic Character Education (which is quite bare at the moment) insha'Allah. I'm almost done with the first lesson plan alhamdulillaah but you can download the first and second lesson activities here and here insha'Allah. Here is a peak at the activity:


These are the first bookmarks with different graphics. The second file has different wording and graphics.

I thought about this new blog because here we are in need of such education in our schools. I don't know if this exists elsewhere but I thought to share the resources. As I said, this already seems overwhelming to me so it may not go anywhere but whatever I design for kindergarten, I'll post here insha'Allah. The other blog....we'll see about that one ...later insha'Allah....

Enjoy insha'Allah!

  5. Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatu Dear Sisters, this sounds like a great project that InshaAllah will benefit the kids of the ummah given the importance the Prophet saw and his companions placed on manners and character. I would love to help on this one if you need a hand with anything InshaAllah.
    Jazak Allahu Khiara
