Ramadan "30 Day of Kindness" Calender

https://drive.google.com/a/pdst.ie/...d/0B0PEDqN6eheiVkQ5RG5NbmtIazA/view Added: 27 Jun 2016 Contributor: Scoilnet Resource type: Guide/notes / Reference

Ramadan is the month of fasting that followers of Islam celebrate across the world. While kids don't need to fast, they usually do have a lot of fun sitting down with the family to try the special dishes made during Iftar - the meal had at the time of breaking the fast at sunset.

There are many ways in which kids can be involved during this Holy Month too. One thing that is emphasized the most during Ramadan is charity, and being kind to others. It is also about refraining from lying, and other bad deeds.

This document is a calender with 30 acts of kindness and facts for Ramadan. Anyone can use the free calendar printable and partake in the spirit of giving. The calendar can be used by kids who celebrate Ramadan at home, and even kids who would like to learn more about this special month in the Muslim calendar.

You can also think of it as a tool to teach them about how Ramadan is associated with charity and kindness, and how the smallest acts of good towards others are still significant. One kind deed a day can bring so much goodness into the lives of others. Family members are included in this calendar, so kids can understand how being kind starts at home.

During the Ramadan festival, encourage students to record the daily appearance of the moon on their calendar and check that it matches the stage of their Ramadan using the worksheets.
