Asalamualaikum,

This last week we introduced the children to the last two letters of the alphabet! We taught the letter Waw and the letter Ya. For the letter Waw we taught the word Walad which means boy. For the letter Ya we taught the word Yed which means hand. As always we reviewed the letter with alif, wow, and ya (long vowels) and fatha, duma, kasra (short vowels). We also reviewed the entire alphabet. Please make sure your child knows the order of the alphabet and can write the letters since their final assessment will require them to write the alphabet in order. Please continue to review surat Al Nas with your child.

BECAUSE STUDENTS WILL HAVE A TWO WEEK BREAK BEFORE OUR NEXT CLASS 2 PACKETS (ONE FOR YA AND ONE FOR WAW) WERE SENT HOME. PLEASE DO ONE PACKET PER WEEK.

As always, please continue to practice and review previous letters with your child. One hour a week every Sunday is not enough time for any child to master the Arabic alphabet. 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.

Asalamualaikum,

This last week we introduced the children to the letter Ha and the word Helaal which means crescent. To involve the students with the letter Ha, we created the letter from pipe cleaners. As always we reviewed the letter with alif, wow, and ya (long vowels) and fatha, duma, kasra (short vowels).

We have also covered numbers 1-10 and have been reviewing the alphabet periodically. Please continue to review surat Al Nas with your child.

Asalamualaikum,

These past 2 weeks we introduced the children to the letter Mim and Nun. The sound of Mim is just like the letter “M” and the sound of Nun is just like the letter “N.” The words we taught with these letters were Masjid (mosque) and Naar (fire). To involve the students with the letter Nun, we wrote out Surat Al-Nas on the white board and had the students identify the letter Nun throughout the surah. Alhamdulillah the students were able to do this with no difficulty. As always we reviewed the letter with alif, wow, and ya (long vowels) and fatha, duma, kasra (short vowels).

We have also covered numbers 1-10. The 2 numbers we learned these past 2 Sundays were Tisa’ah (9) and ‘Ashrah (10).

Asalamualaikum,

This week we introduced the children to the letter Lam. The sound of Lam is just like the letter “L.” The word of the day was Laymoon which means lemon. We passed Laymoon around in the class. We also have many students with the letter Lam in their name and used them as examples by writing their names in Arabic on the board. As always we reviewed the letter with alif, wow, and ya (long vowels) and fatha, duma, kasra (short vowels).

We have now started Surat Al-Nas. Please memorize the first 2 ayahs with your child.

KG/1st Arabic/Qur’an Update

Asalamualaikum,

This week we introduced the children to 2 letters: Ain and Ghain. We introduced these two letters as sisters. Ain is a deep ‘aa sound that vibrates from the throat. Ghain is also another throaty letter. The word we taught for Ain is Ain which means eye. The word we learned for Ghain was Ghurab which means crow.

To get the kids excited about the letters and words we gave the children googly eyes, or an Ain.  We also created both letters from pipe cleaners. As always we reviewed the letters with alif, wow, and ya (long vowels) and fatha, duma, kasra (short vowels).

PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR CHILD HAS SURAT AL FALAQ MEMORIZED AS WE WILL BE MOVING ON TO ANOTHER SURAH.
