After a year of Zoom, I have grown an appreciation for educational instruction through video! So when it was time to share Ramadan resources with my sons’ teachers, I scoured YouTube for the best resources.
I wasn’t able to find a video that shared Ramadan traditions from a kid’s perspective, so I create this “What is Ramadan” for the classroom video and also included two activities for kids.
The ladies behind “Reading Over The Rainbow” did a wonderful job with this read aloud plus binocular activity. This is a wonderful activity for kids ages 4-7 years old.
My favorite Ramadan story is Laila’s Lunchbox: A Ramadan Story by Reem Faruqi. It is a heart warming story of a little girl unsure of how to tell her teacher and classmates she’s fasting.
Peace and Salam,
