ABC's

Asalamu Alaikum,

-This is a scheduled post.I have decided to stop "live posts" during the month of Ramadhan, to try to concentrate more fully on what I need to during the month. Please don't hesitate to make comments, as I will be stopping in once in a while to check how every body is doing. Have a blessed month every one!


Many of the kids here start school a bit early, my niece and nephew started at 3 and 2.5 years old. Since we are kind of nervous sending Saad to school here, and back home they start kindergarten at 5 anyway, we are just waiting until we get back.

We have been doing some work on our own though. We got him a "Ben 10" chalk board, and pencil case since it is his favorite cartoon and we have been practicing writing out the alphabet. We have made it up to "P" so far. We also got him some of those little work books that have the letters printed really lightly, or with dashes so that you can write over them.
"A" for apple

He has even started learning to write simple words. "N-O spells No", was the first, and he really likes that one!
On the top is Tariq's writing, and then Saad's.

MashAllah he is doing a very good job!

He has also progressed from "drawing" scribbles to stick figures!

Arms where the arms go, legs where the legs go, two eyes and a mouth, Yay!

So far all his people are square. It is so cute to see him run up all excited to show me his latest masterpiece! I get so happy to see him learn something new and want to show what he has learned to us.
