Theme Pack: I Eat (Manners From the Quraan and Sunnah))

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

This is a thematic pack that helps teach preschool children that wasting food is not from the correct Islamic manners. Children also learn/review that we eat with our right hand only and they learn the terms/concepts "right" and "left", "near" and "far". They also learn about foods that are healthy and foods that are unhealthy and should be consumed infrequently.

Included in the pack is a mini-poster with an ayah specific to not wasting food, two mini- student readers (in Arabic only). The first student book teaches the manner in which we eat (رابط التحميل); the second student reader teaches how healthy food helps us grow (رابط التحميل). In the pack there is also a 20 page student workbook (رابط التحميل). Each activity in the workbook helps children develop a specific skill such as: determining which object does not belong in a group, sorting based on the characteristic of healthy and unhealthy foods, a math activity (addition sentences) and several other activities.


A place mat (رابط التحميل).that reminds children to say 'Bismillaah', eat with the right hand, and helps them place their eating utensils in the correct place. This can also be used as a Montessori activity by giving the child a small plate, small spoon and small cup and inviting them to place them correctly (without food or drink in the cup and bowl).
The Student workbook (رابط التحميل): cover page, sample pages and assessment page on the back cover

The teacher/parent assessment sheet
Due to time constraints the mini-student readers are not available in English but in the English student workbook, the last page is an assessment page for the teacher/parent that is intended to help in the record keeping process. This is not in the Arabic version. 

After the child completes the workbook, the teacher/parent can quickly go through the checklist and mark off what applies. In this way, when needing to refer back to the students work at a later date, the teacher/parent can see at a glance how each student interacted with this particular activity. 
(this file has no text enabling teacher/parent to hand write the directions in the language of choice insha'Allaah)


Enjoy insha'Allaah!

    As Salaamu Alaiki Sis Umm An-Nu'man

    Baraka'Allaahu'Feekum for this! Did you make this? Will the mini student readers be available in English?
    Can you still use the theme pack without the mini student readers? I wanted to download it but I did not know if I could benefit from the whole theme pack if i left out the mini readers????? Since I cannot read Arabic :/
    And will there be more theme packs? Because this is lovely Mashaa'Allaah :)

  5. Waalaikum assalam wa rahmatullaah,

    Wa feki barak Allaah. lol....yes dear sis Umm Suhailah, I made this alhamdulillaah. Ya ukhti, I will try my best to put them in English. It is only due to time. You can still benefit from the pack without the student readers. If you teach the manners of eating from the Quran and Sunnah and have a book about how eating healthy foods help us grow, it should be no problem. You don't have to have the student books.

    Insha'Allaah, there will be more of these. I hope to post the next one soon biithnillaah.

    You have been missed dear sis *smile*

    Jazakillaahu khayr for your kind words, indeed alhamdulillaah.
