Naeema (Muhammad (S) Before Becoming a Prophet)

Class update and homework

from:Siddiqui, Arshad

to:Islamic Studies 7

Dear Parents,

Assalamalaikum,

We covered two chapters from the book last Sunday and one of the chapters was "Respecting yourself". We also discussed that students should avoid the things in school or life that could harm their body.

For next week, students expressed a desire to take the class themselves. I think this is a good idea so I asked every student to prepare a lecture of at least 5 minutes on any topic that is related to Islamic Studies. This also would be the homework for this week:

Homework:

Every student would prepare a lecture of about 5 minutes on any topic related to Islamic Studies and present it in class.

Salat Stars worksheet:

Students did well last week in udpating the Salat Stars worksheet. I am hoping they would continue to do so this week as well.
