[♦] Part 3: How to Create a Month of Ramadhan Activities & Lessons

To read all of the steps and get all forms HERE.

Step 3 – This part of the process requires that you do the Ramadhan Detailed Activity & Lesson Planner (RDAP). It is a basic lesson plan.

This is where you provide all of the details necessary to completing an individual activity or lesson such as day and time of the activity, supplies, steps, etc.

You can even script out what you will say, do, questions you will ask, instructions to students, for example.  Detailed plans differ from one activity to another.

The activities for the RDEAP  come from your Daily Educational & Activity Planner.

The RDEAP can be done a week in advance, or the day before, or on even on the day your students/children do the activity.

At the end of the activity, make notes on how things went. What worked. What did not. Which parts did the children/students love the most. This will make doing this next year a whole lot easier.

Here is the example (remember, this is an example; it’s not real, not even the links)

[♦] Direction of Salaah Compass Rose — 

In this activity, children will make a compass rose and label the different directions.

They will also indicate the direction of the Ka’bah from their location.
