  1. Phonics

A general daily phonics session might consist of:

1.       Reviewing flashcards

2.       Learning new sound/word list

3.       Reading new word list

4.       Practicing new sound/words (games, worksheets)

5.       Reading sentences with new sounds plus review sounds*

6.       Taking dictation on words with new sound and sentences*

 * Can be saved for later in the day.

For Phonics Resources, see: TJ's Phonics Page

  1. Sight Words

A general daily sight words session might consist of:


1. Review flashcards

2. Learn new sight words

3. Practice new words (games, worksheets, etc)

4. Read sentences with new words

 For Sight Word Resources, see: TJ's Reading Page

  1. Grammar/Usage

As student learns how to read sentences, gradually introduce/review the concepts of punctuation, capitalization, parts of speech, etc. from what is being read.

  1. Reading

A general daily reading session might consist of:

1. Repeated reading activity (select passage or sentences  or words and reread until a fluent reading is achieved.) Use Hifz Helper Counter Mats (Study aids) to keep track of the number of readings. However, when child begins to get weary, its best to stop. For younger students, use material that they are working on from phonics.

2. Read for enjoyment (no “formal academic work” associated with it)


For free, online reading material resources, see: TJ's Reading Page and for a more detailed description of repeated reading, see: TJ's Reading Skills Page, under Fluency

  1. Read aloud

A general daily read aloud session might consist of:


    1. Listen to parent/teacher read aloud.
    2. Answer comprehension questions or summarize/discuss reading, but keep it light so that it is an enjoyable together time.

 This can be done during the day or even at bedtime.

 For free, online reading material resources/links, see:

 TJ's Reading Page.

TJ's Daily Quraan Reading Schedules


  1. Writing (“Composition”/Penmanship)

To save time, incorporate writing into as many of the previous sections as possible.

In addition, ideas for writing:


    1. copywork:


Copy/trace letters, words, sentences, ayaat/ahadith, paragraphs according to the level of the student from the Quraan, books, the board, labels, and other creative sources.


    1. journal prompts:

 Give children fun and interesting journal prompts to write about such as questions, compare/contrast, descriptive sentences, and paragraphs.


    1. name/date writing

Child writes name and today’s date each day; season and day of the week


    d.   composition

for older students.



See TJ's Writing Resources




If you cannot do all the above activities everyday,

don’t worry,

try to at least review flashcards, maybe some name/date writing,

and maybe some light reading or read alouds.

A little bit done daily is more beneficial than a lot done sporadically.
