Summary about letters Alif-Daad

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh.

We`ve now studied first 15 letters Alhamdulillaah. Some of them we`ve studied more and some of them less. Me and my dear sister Ummu Abdillaah have written about our studying progress mostly like reporting about our weeks. That`s why there can be in one post about many themes - for example about the letters we`ve learnt, but also about places we`ve visited and things we`ve done with the kids and also about math, learning about nature etc. That`s why I think that it`s little difficult for a reader to find fast the most important links and ideas for the letters. From now on I try to write more theme oriented, like I`ve already tried in some of my posts, inshaaAllaah. But we also thought with sister Ummu Abdillaah that it would be usefull to put some important links and ideas to one post. That`s why I`ve tried to choose usefull links and best crafts from my and sister Ummu Abdillaah`s posts. For this post it`s also easy to add ideas and links if have them after inshaaAllaah!

I think also about myself - maybe I can use this ideas after with baby I inshaaAllaah! When K and S were small there were not a lots of digital machines like iPhones and digicameras. We had a camera for which had to buy a film first and then send the film to the shop for to prepare the photos. That`s why I have not pictures of  K`s and S`s crafts from their early age and I`ve already forgot some of ideas we used.
