KG/1 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 Dal. Words we taught the children were dar (house), dukhan (smoke) and dib (bear). We also stressed the idea that Dal is a picky letter and doesn’t connect with all the letters: Dal only connects from the right side, not the left side. We then practiced letters using play dough.

It was a pleasure to meet those of you who came to conferences. If you were not able to attend, a progress report for your child was placed in their folder. As always please work on the homework throughout the week with your child.


Inshallah I will see you next Sunday,

KG/1 Arabic Class 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).We then reviewed the letters Ba, Ta and Tha, and took a quiz covering these letters.  

This week we introduced the children to the letter Kha. Kha is a hard Kha sound from deep within the throat. We taught the children the word Kharouf (sheep) and Khubz (bread). The children had to play with a rug of sheepskin and pretending to be a Kharouf.

We have also started learning Surat Al-Ikhlas. If your child knows this surah, we have given them Surat Al-Lahab to learn.  

Please do not forget to sign up for conferences—when doing so please write your child’s name next to yours on the sign-up sheet.

Please work on the worksheet sent home with your child! MANY STUDENTS ARE NOT BRINGING THEIR HOMEWORK BACK. The worksheets are intended to be worked on throughout the week so the child can become acquainted with the letters and their shapes. Children who bring back the homework fully completed next week will receive a prize for their hard work.

InshaAllah I will see you next Sunday,

KG/1 Arabic Class Updates

Assalamualaikum,

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 Ha. Ha is a hard H sound from deep within the throat. We also told the children Ha is the sister of Jeem. The children learned words such as Hoot (whale) and Hesan (horse). To interact with the children, we brought a stick horse and whale that they could play with.

Please work on the worksheet sent home with your child! The worksheets are intended to be worked on throughout the week so the child can become acquainted with the letters and their shapes.

Asalamualaikum!

This week we worked on recognizing the letter Ba. The two words we taught were Baqara (cow) and Bayt (house). We sent home a packet of worksheets for the children to work on throughout the week. Try to work on the packet 5 minutes a day with your child. We also practiced reading the first 3 ayahs of Surat Al-Fatiha. Please help your child memorize them by next week. A good idea is reading them every night with your child.

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.

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.
