[♦] Part 2: How to Create a Month of Ramadhan Activities & Lessons

Step 2 —  Choose at least 30 from the  Course of Study Planner that you filled out. This was step #1.

Fill in the Ramadhan Daily Educational & Activity Planner (RDEAP) with the selected activities.  Download the RDEAP Guide 1-page format, or the RDEAP Guide 2-page format.

Schedule one or more activities/lessons per day. Don’t worry about over planning.  And be open to doing an activity more than once, especially if it is a hit.

Here is an example:

Pre-Ramadhan Wed 8/4  Make Ramadhan calendar; Make countdown chain; Read 1 Juz (break up into five 20-min sessions)

Day 1 Thu 8/5 Make Ramadhan Mubarak mobile; Read 1 Juz (break up into five 20-min sessions);  Ramadhan Butterflies project

Day 2 Fri 8/6 Attend Jumuah; Read 1 Juz (break up into five 30-min sessions); Dehydration Lesson

The Ramadhan Course of Study Planner (RCOS Planner pdf) has to be filled out first, of course. Read all about that HERE.

Insha’Allah, we will go over Step 3 next week.
