My First Islamic Learning Binder - A Free Interactive Printable



What makes homeschooling fun is that you can try different ways of learning to see what works for your child. Not every child is the same, so the way of effectively receiving knowledge can also differ. Using simple interactive binders/notebooks can be a very fun and positive learning experience for some children. I've put together an Islamic interactive binder for my daughter and wanted to share it with you all.

I must confess, I first wanted to only share it with the subscribers of this blog, but later decided to make it public. The reason for is because of how my children have been overjoyed about this binder. I thought, maybe other children may love it just as much. So, here we go!

Let's start with the content of this binder.
It comes with nine (9) different activities and a certificate of achievement at the end.

Activities
  1. I know Surah Al Faatihah
  2. Who do we worship?
  3. Allah is ... (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6?)
  4. How does Allah look?
  5. What did Allah create?
  6. The 5 pillars of Islam
  7. The 5 prayers of the day
  8. The 6 pillars od Emaan
  9. Character: Allah loves when we ...
Extra
  • Table of content
  • This binder is for ...
  • Certificate of Achievement
Total number of pages of the printable: 24

This project (as my daughter likes to call her activities and folders) is interactive and can be used independently by any child (3-8, less or more). It comes cut-outs to use as manipulatives and/or pieces of matching games.


What you'd need:
  1. A printer (obviously if you'd be printing)
  2. A4 papers
  3. A laminator (if you don't have one and aren't planning on getting one, you can use clear tape! I used to do that before getting a laminator. Shhhhh) 
  4. Laminating pouches
  5. A binder
  6. A hole puncher
  7. Scissors
  8. Self-Adhesive velcros (if you can get clear ones, great)
  9. Clear tape (optional)

How to assemble it:
  • Print the cover page and the certificate of achievement on 'borderless' to extend the colors to the end of the paper (A4).
  • Print the rest of the pages (A4).
  • Cut out the manipulatives/matching pieces (or cover them with clear tape before cutting if you're not using a laminator).
  • Laminate all pages
  • Hole punch all pages and put them in a binder. If you can get a binder that stands, that would be even better. 
  • Put the pieces of velcros like the example in the picture below (you'll know by looking at the pages).
  • Put the opposite end of the velcros at the back of the manipulatives/matching pieces as shown above.
  • Tape the cover of the activity on the binder cover (optional).
And that's it! You're all done! Now play with your children and explain what should be done as you go. You wouldn't need to explain it much and before you know it, they'd be using it on their own. I believe the velcro part makes it even more fun for children.


Trust me, this may take you a little bit of time and effort to put together, but it will be worth it because it won't take much effort from your childen to use but still learn!  It doesn't hurt to try and see how they respond.



If you use this learning binder, I would really appreciate it if you would let me know how it went. Getting feedback would allow me to make even better printables for you all, in shaa Allah.
May Allah make it beneficial.
