Today we covered our lesson UNIT A Chapter 2 I think of Allah first. We also did a wudu activity as part of our salah lesson. Please work on practicing wudu at home and I will continue to work on it at school for the next few weeks. 

HW : Please complete page 9 at home 

I also gave the kids a paper of the syllabus for the first semester and I asked them to have a parent sign the bottom. Please do so, as I want to make sure I have a way of communitcating with you and that you know what is expected of your kids. The syllabus is an easy way to keep an account of what we will be doing every sunday and what is coming up. I have limited home work to just one page because I know kids have a lot to going on in school and for Quran class. I will do as much as possible at sunday school and also make it fun Insha Allah. 

Looking ahead, the first test will be on September 29th (UNIT A chapters 1, 2 and 3)
