KG/1st Arabic Class Update

Asalamualaikum,

This week we introduced the children to the letter Za. We then reviewed Za with alif, wow, and ya (long vowels) and fatha, duma, kasra (short vowels). We also stressed the fact that Za can only connect from the right side. Three other letters previously learned that also follow this rule are Ra, Dal, and Dhal. The words of the day were Zait (oil) and Zaytoon (olive).

Please continue to practice and review previous letters with your child.  The homework sent home is designed for our students to work on it every day for a little bit. Repetition is key when learning to recognize letters. 

Jazakallhu Khayrun,

Lama Sharaf

4/5 Seerah Class Updates

Salam everyone!

Hope you all are doing well. Class went well yesterday, all the kids received their review sheets and we went over them and finished them in class. Midterm will be next week, since it is our last week before two weeks break. Please have them review their sheets before class. The test is super simple, easy and similar to the review sheets. If your child will not be there next week, please let me know as I will email you the test for them to complete at the end of the week.

Please email with any questions, comments or concerns.

6/7 Islamic Studies

Salam everyone!

Hope you all are doing well. We had a great class yesterday, excellent thoughts, and discussions. We talked about mindfulness and use of it in our daily lives, and connecting it with religion. We also talked about role models, how we can be great role models and how we can follow role models.

That moves us into talking about important people in the prophet’s life, his companions and family members, so the “exam” for next week is as follows. Each student was assigned a certain person, I would like them to make a 2-3 min presentation on this person, it could have a visual aid, or not, or a small set of sentences that they can teach the class about. I’d like all the kids to take notes on these people, and important things they did in their life as well.

Also, next week will be treat week, it is the last week before two weeks break, I will be brining donuts and treats for the class for their prayer charts they did a few weeks back, hope they are still continuing to do so (majority told me they still were.. yay!) Please email with any questions, comments or concerns

Have a great week!
Salam

KG/1st Arabic Update

Asalamualaikum,

This week we introduced the children to the letter Ra. We then reviewed Ra with alif, wow, and ya (long vowels) and fatha, duma, kasra (short vowels). We also stressed the fact that Ra can only connect from the right side. Two other letters previously learned that also follow this rule are Dal and Dhal. The words of the day were Rajul (man) and Rooman (Pomegranate). To engage the children with the word we passed Rooman around the room and showed the children the what the inside of a Rooman looks like. We also learned the number Arba’ah (four).

Please continue to practice and review previous letters with your child.  Repetition is key when learning to recognize letters. 

We also only spend fifteen minutes every Sunday reviewing Quran; this is not enough practice. Parents should continue to review surahs with their child to see progress.

Jazakallhu Khayrun,
Lama Sharaf

2/3 Islamic Studies Update

Salaam parents,
In class, we read the story Our Body and Us which the students really enjoyed. Some students took turns reading in order to practice their reading skills. Then we had a class discussion and the students were enthusiastic to participate. Next week we will go more in-depth on the topic inshallah.
-Ms. Sarah

KG/1st Arabic Update

Assalamualaikum,

As usual we started out the day by asking the children in Arabic what their names were. We asked Maismuka (for boys) and Maismukee (for girls).

This week we introduced the children to the letter Dhal. The word of the day was Dhi’ib which means wolf. An interactive activity we did was playing with a stuffed Dhi’ib and having children repeat the word. We also taught the children the number 3 which is Thalathah in Arabic.

Please work on the worksheet sent home with your child throughout the week! 

Inshallah I will see you next Sunday,

Lama Sharaf
