KG/1st Grade Qur’an/Arabic Update
This week we introduced the children to the letter Sad. Sad is a hard “S” sound as opposed to the soft “S” sound Seen creates. We reviewed Sad with alif, wow, and ya (long vowels) and fatha, duma, kasra (short vowels). The word of the day was Surah which means picture. In order to help the students become acquainted with the new letter, we let students create Sad out of play dough. We also reviewed numbers 1-5 and Surat Al-Falaq. Please make sure your child has the first 4 ayahs memorized.
Please continue practicing the study guide with your child to be prepared for the upcoming test.
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.
