Ramadan Circle Time: How to talk to your child’s classroom?

For most of my community in Napa, I am the first Muslim they’ve met. Therefore, I serve as an ambassador for Islam in a way. Similarly, my daughter is probably the first Muslim in the classroom. A lot of times, we get invited to our young kids’ classroom to talk about Ramadan or Eid.

But how do you explain such a complex concept in such a short time, and keep the attention of toddlers and young children?

My First Quran Activity Book: The story behind the book

My First Quran Activity Book was born out of frustration. There are lots of amazing Muslim books out there but I was looking for something more interactive for my daughter. When I took my daughter to early childhood programs in the library they stressed the importance of hands on learning. After a lot of research to figure out what “hands on learning” means, I realized its basically a play-based learning model. If play-based learning is so crucial to teach young kids, why don’t we use it to teach Islam? I wanted to come up with a way not only for her to learn the stories in the Quran but be able to play with them too.
