Math Activity: Ten Fingers

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

This activity was the final/closing activity for learning to count from 10-20 in order (رابط التحميل) from this post. Students learn and talk about what we do with our 10 fingers.

This is one student's book
On the cover: the students trace their hand prints and colour them in. They then add the book cover label.

Inside: students learn the names of the fingers and then talk about the things we do with our fingers, such as make tasbeeh, give charity, worship Allaah, play, etc.

On the back cover, students learn the words for at-tashahhud. If the class time runs out, this part can be completed at home. This back cover page can be found at Easel & Ink here.

These little books are made using two pieces of construction paper. Students pick which colours they want and the teacher/teachers assistant tapes or stapes the two pages together. The students then (with teacher/parent guidance) construct the book.

The cards are blank in the file to allow teacher/parent to write in the words they choose. Two cards have words on them as examples.


  1. Assalaamu Alaikum sis
    Nice to see you posting again after a break. Alhamdulillaah! Very nice activities! Hope you are fine and awaiting to see you coming up with nice stuff Insha Allaah! I remember you have asked somewhere if I am using Learning Roots salah cards with Maimoonah. Yes sis we started using and Insha Allaah we are learning the adkhaar slowly so that Maimoonah can start praying soon Insha Allaah!

  2. Waaliakum assalaam wa rahmatullaah,

    jazakillaahu khayr dear sis Umm Maimoonah. Alhamdulillaah, I am happy to hear that Maimoonah has begun working with the salah cards. I think she will be excited to start praying yes? *smile*

    Please pass her my salam and a hug!

    And the blogging breaks seem to get longer and longer don't they? *smile*
