The Muslim Teacher Newsletter is an online newsletter which bring Islam and education together. It is complied by a team of teachers and educators and published by Sound Vision. The newsletter focuses on outlining resources for Muslim teachers as well as ways in which Muslim teachers can integrate Islam into their daily teaching. It has mainly a North American slant, particularly the United States. Yet there is inspiring information any parent, teacher or general reader can benefit from.
According to the website:
We are launching the “Muslim Teacher”, an online newsletter, with the hope of offering educators tools and best practices to help them develop Muslim youth who are contributing citizens and confident Muslims.
Our writers and editors, as well as audience, include educators in full-time Muslim schools, weekend and after school Islamic studies programs, public schools, and homeschooling parents.
Read the First Issue and the Second Issue of Muslim Teachers. The newsletter editor is also looking for contributors to the magazine.
My apologies for not posting much lately, especially in terms of reviews. That is because I have been working on the author interview for next month. I am happy to say that I had a great opportunity to interview the author of some well-known Muslim children’s and teenager’s books. So stay tuned and check back on the 1st of June when I announce all the happenings here on the blog.
In the meantime I want to share with you some really neat products I found at Muslim Tree. The company produces Islamic educational and motivational products such as posters, books, personal journals that can be used in the home, school or even weekend Islamic school. Magnets, place mats and calendars are also to be added to their collections.
There are only two books listed on the website; one about performing wudu and the other on how to pray. I have not seen the books in print, but from the preview on the website, I must say that I like that these books are written with rhyming sentences. It will not only make them fun to read and but make learning easier. What’s more customers can have the books personalised to include a child’s name in the title and in the story. This makes the books great to give as gifts or as prizes (for a teacher/school for example). I am looking forward to other books that this company has to offer in the future.
