A is for Ant

We are doing mini unit studies going through the alphabet for our ABC of the Quran adventure. Our first letter A is represented by Apple, Africa, Lil A, Airplane, & the Quran A is for Ant which tells the story of the gift God gave Prophet Sulaiman (Solomon): the ability to speak the language of the animals.

Each letter will follow a basic format for Lil A's learning that will include the five senses. The visual and touching exercises will include:
ABC of Quran Letter Cards
