When you use these decorations, you’ll create a positive, welcoming, and supporting classroom for your students.  Your Muslim students will appreciate your acknowledgment of the most important holiday in Islam and your other students will be exposed to another culture and religion in a respectful way.

Ramadan Posters

Muslims around the world who celebrate Ramadan often greet each other by saying Ramadan Kareem.  That means Generous Ramadan or Have a Generous Ramadan
One of the practices of the holiday is to give money to charity, so some people consider this greeting an admonition to be generous in the amount of their charitable giving. 
The freebie has 6 posters that say Ramadan Kareem

Eid al-Fitr Posters

When Ramadan ends, it is Eid al-Fitr, which lasts 3 days.  Greetings for Eid al-Fitr consist of saying Eid Mubarak.  That means Blessed Eid or Have a Blessed Eid.
Muslims celebrate Eid al-Fitr by having a large feast, exchanging gifts, and going to a mosque to pray.
The freebie has 6 posters that say Eid Mubarak

How to Use the Posters

You can print all of them out to create a bulletin board for your classroom.  Another way to use them is to change your printer settings so you’re printing multiple images of 1 poster on a page.  Then, you can use the smaller versions as cards for your students, their families, and/or your Muslim colleagues.

As one educator said about it, “Thank you for this thorough collection that will be useful for educating students during Ramadan or at any time during a world history unit. Colorful and interesting!”

Happy Ramadan!
