Review: Word Flow by Learning Roots

I was searching for Word Flow review on google but couldn't find one so I decided to share my review here.

Word Flow is a flash card of 100 High-frequency words from Al Quran. I discover this method from Pn Lina Karim through one of her VCD products. I started googling if there are any free pdf printables of HFW from al-Quran, but I couldn't find any until I browse through learning roots products and found Word Flow! 

Long story short I bought it and start teaching my kids at home I guess it's a good method since my eldest girl, Aisyah is already bored with alif ba ta aa ii uu aaan iiin uuun. She is enjoying our session with HFW flash card and my baby boy will always be excited during our learning session. I took only 10 mins each session or less. I'll stop when they get excited. This is to maintain their interest in the next session.  So far, I'm loving it. The size is just nice for a 2-year-old but a bit small for the baby. If I can find free printables ill print it bigger following the Glenn Doman flash card size. 

At the bottom of the card, there is a translation of each word in English. Mama can also learn Arabic :)

I would suggest mama out there to try out this method. I hope my kids can learn to read Al Quran easier as their eyes are recognizing the words in the early years. Amin.

The most important is, don't be lazy! There is no point buying educational stuff if u don't teach your kids at home. *reminder to myself* 

Till next time ;)

The least that a mama could do..

Being a maidless working mom is really tiring. plus when your husband is outstation or coming home late. 

when u have to fetch your kids from nursery. front carry the baby (thanks to ssc) and hold the 2 yo hands. and bring all the bagsss..nursery bag mama's handbag, cooler bags. how u wish u are an octopus. lol. lucky me my apartment got lift. i can't imagine those mama who need to walk up with all the baggage.

once u reached home, u need to put down everything and start working as a mama; clean up your kids..feed them. solat. continue feeding adik to sleep (while kakak making noise trying to get mama's attention). settle with adik, get up and play with kakak..have dinner and then persuade kakak to go to sleep...then mama can start CCA session while kakak is drinking milk..CCA: cilik celik aquran. a method that was introduced by Ustazah Nurul Hayati during mum to mum seminar. it's actually reading juz amma surahs to your little ones repeatedly at least 3 session per day. in hope, that one day it'll be easy for them to hafaz those surahs since it has been stimulated, and get into their subconscious mind when they were little. that's the least that mama could do...and mama goes to sleeep together with the kidszzzz..until ding dong! ayah is home!! 

I really hope my little effort to teach them al quran is blessed by Allah swt..and may He ease the road to raise these little caliphs to be a great worshipper of Allah swt and His messenger, Rasulullah saw..insyaAllah.
