    Salamo Alaikum,
    Thank you for the interesting links. I was wondering if you had any ideas for teaching history to preschoolers. Should one follow a general historical curriculum or start off with an Islamic overview of historical events like the story of adam and eve, or the Seerah and so on…

    Would love to know your thoughts..

      wa alaykum us salaam,

      Sorry to take so long, I saw your comment some time ago and meant to respond but didn’t get back to it. I don’t have really any ideas for teaching history to preschoolers, as I don’t really formally teach my kids at this age (other than maybe the alphabet and math). As far as Islamic knowledge, its kind of a more informal thing, as things come up in our day (duaas, character, daily activities and what the Prophet, salla Allahu alayhi wa sallam, said to do/the way he did this and that, etc).

      But if I were to teach it, I think starting off with, as you said, Adam and Eve, and maybe the prophets in general would be a good place to start/good approach to take; reading stories about the prophets that they can digest and I think for me, that would be the extent of what I would get into as far as Islamic history (or any history) goes. If you are talking secular history, I don’t even touch that until much, much later (and moreso because of time, I am just struggling to get the 3Rs in, smile).

      If I come across any mention of teaching to history and preschoolers, I will definitely post it here, insha Allah.
