SK1 Weekly Updates: ( Nov. 16 - Nov. 20 )

As-salamu-alaikum wa Rahmatullah Dear Parents,I hope and pray that all of you are doing well. We had a wonderful week alhamdulilah!

Arabic Language: احب اللغة العربية
We reviewed and studied the letters ( أ – ذ ), the name of harakat (fatah, kasra , and dama) and how to read the letters studied with them; this has been accomplished though a number of activities, such as songs, games, stories and competitions. The children have found these activities to be exciting and fun. Please ask your children about them and watch as they make the sounds and the actions.
Lesson Title: The letter ذ The students worked on the Arabic letter in the classroom.

Reading: Read the letter ذ  with short vowels (fatha, kasra and dama).

Writing: Practice writing the letter ذ   in the arabic workbook and textbook at school. How to write the ذ  at the beginning- middle- and end of words.

Orally:  Ask the kids what is your name? and how are you? in Arabic. Know the different between asking a boy or a girl ( feminine and masculine ) كيف حالك ؟ ما اسمـك؟  The kids have to answer in a complete sentences.
how many days in a week? كم يوم في الاسبوع ؟
What day is today? ما اليوم ؟

Show and Tell:
MashaAllah and thank you to all the SK1 students who brought some items for show and tell. This activity is really important to improve the students' speaking skills in Arabic and to increase their self confidence insha'Allah. Please remember to post your child’s Show & Tell on the fridge to remind him/her of the day they suppose to do their turn.

November Du`aa'

اللَّهُمَّ نَقِّ قَلْبِي مِنَ الْخَطَايَا كَمَا نَقَّيْتَ الثَّوْبَ الأَبْيَضَ مِنَ الدَّنَسِ 

Allāhumma naqqi qalbī min al-khaṭāyā kamā naqqaitath-thawbal-abyaḍa min ad-dannas

“O Allah, cleanse my heart of sins as You cleanse a white garment of filth"

Masha'Allah SK1 memorized the duaa. Way to go SK1.

Anti- Bullying week:
SK1 had the chance to listen to different stories about bullying. They learned what to do in case someone is bullying them! Please ask your child what did they learn at school. In addition, teacher Nancy our school librarian read the story " The Recess Queen"

In Arabic I read the story: لم الاستهزاء والسخرية which talk about bullying. Please ask your child what they learned from both stories.
