Class update and Homework

from:Siddiqui, Arshad

to:Islamic Studies 7

Dear Parents,

Assalamalaikum,

Hope you all are doing well. We had an interesting and different class last Sunday. All the students presented in the class on a topic related to Islamic Studies. Almost all the students were well prepared, had good content and presented well. 

My goal behind such activities is to build public speaking and presentation skills in students while also teaching about Islam. Also if there are some students who are little on the shy side this would help them become comfortable with public speaking.

Homework for next week is for students to read the Last Sermon of the Prophet that was given on Mount Arafat (http://www.alhuda.sg/sermon.html) and then summarize the three key points of the sermon. So students will read the sermon and then make a list of three main things that have been said in the sermon. 

Thanks,

Arshad

We also listened to children recite verses 284 thru 286 of Surah Al-Baqarah for HW #11. Some children did not have any part of verse 286 memorized while others did not. Please continue to work with them at home. They should have it all three verses completely memorized by next week (Feb 24).

Storytime by Some of Quran 5 Students: Following children need to bring their notes for the story on the great event of first revelation in Cave Hira:

Naeema (Muhammad (S) Before Becoming a Prophet)
Faaris (Visit of Anegl Jibrael in Cave Hira)
Alina (Muhammad (S) Returns from Cave Hira to Khadija)
Hebah (Khadijah takes Muhammad (S) to her cousin Warqa)

They will practice the story in class on Feb 24. If they feel they are ready, they will tell the story to grade 1 on March 3 (inshallah).

I will not be in class next week (Feb 24) and Sr. Raya will take the class (inshallah).

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.
