This is a fun and exciting way to display the Five Pillars of Islam in your classroom. Each pillar comes with a colorful Muslim child picture and a brief description of each of the pillars of Islam. Great for laminating and using year after year.
Each year after learning about the seerah of the Prophet Muhammed sallahu alayhi wa salam, I like to do a fun project with my 2nd graders. I change it every year. This year I decided to put them into groups and take all the events we learned about and put them into a timeline of the life of the Prophet Muhammed sallahu alayhi wa salam. The students first had to divide the jobs in the group (researcher, manager, writer, drawer, colorer, etc.). Then they began working on their rough drafts. They had to write a brief description of the event and a picture to go along with it. After they completed their rough draft they had to conference with me for editing. Once they got the okay they were able to begin their final draft. I got the cool scroll paper from my local teacher supply store, but you can find it here. Enjoy!
For the 100th Day of School our school celebrates by having a huge contest. For the first hundred days of school the students memorize the 99 names of Allah. Then the week of the 100th Day of School they recite them and get trophies and prizes. I decided this year to create a bulletin board with the 99 names of Allah. I had this amazing rocket ship and thought of each student coloring an astronaut holding one of the names of Allah. It reads "Blasting Off With The 99 Names of Allah." The students loved it!
I created this cute fall bulletin board for the lobby in our elementary building. It was so much fun creating and the kids absolutely loved it! For the tree I crumbled shipping paper I found at the Dollar Tree (1 roll). I also found the fall leaves (50 in a pack, I used 2 packs) and the scarecrow from the Dollar Tree. $3 total!!!! The rest of the board was created using construction paper. I wrote each of the elementary students names on a leaf and each teachers names on the corn. I plan to use the same scene for winter, spring, and summer. Look for those to come.
I love the Hajj season. It's a great time of year to get creative and have loads of fun with your students. This is my favorite bulletin board to create. I use construction paper and card stock to create the different steps of Hajj. I also have students make camels, tress, and homes out of construction paper. For this bulletin board I wrote the lyrics to the Hajj song that the students were learning.
Learning the fun way!
