Ramadan writing resource for kids

Beyond Crafts: Explore 5 Educational Ramadan Writing Projects for Kids

Ramadan writing activities might not be top of your priority list while planning for Ramadan but if you homeschool you know what a struggle Ramadan homeschooling can be.  It’s a challenge to balance schooling with fasting and other ibaadah.   Some families like to take the whole month off but for others that just isn’t an option. If you are homeschooling this Ramadan you likely want to introduce Ramadan content into your lessons so that you can make the most of each precious hour.

Here are 5 ideas for a range of ages to develop their writing skills while still focusing on Ramadan and ibaadah!

Ramadan Flip Book

This Ramadan flipbook is perfect for kids aged 7-11.  It focuses on the main questions of Ramadan like what is Ramadan and who fasts the month? These may seem like obvious questions but children often can’t express the answers succinctly. It comes with a handy information sheet and is even great for non-Muslim kids to learn about Ramadan.

Lots of kids are reluctant writers and this Ramadan writing activity is engaging and gets kids excited.

Ramadan Copywork

Another Ramadan writing activity that is great for primary-aged kids is copywork.  Ramadan is the month of the Qur’an but many children haven’t built the fluency to read it quite yet.  Qur’anic copywork is a great way to connect and reflect on the Qur’an while also improving letter formation and stamina.

Ramadan Writing Prompts

Ramadan writing prompts are a great independent activity. Ramadan is a very busy month for you and any writing prompts like copywork do not require a lot of teacher/parent input.  You can use a range of writing prompts for example a story prompt about an unexpected guest at iftar time or a descriptive prompt about a favourite Ramadan memory. The above set are free to download in from the Free Resource Library, just sign up here or access here if you have already signed up.

Write your own Ramadan News Report

It guides students through the different components of news articles and helps them write their own step-by-step.  Writing is a major focus of my homeschool this year and informational writing is a key component of most curricula.  The Ramadan News Report unit helps us cover a core style of writing whilst still engaging with Ramadan.
