Jr Youth Group - weekly update 10/14

As-Salaamu Alaikum,

On  10/14/18, we completed Chapter 2 in 'Footsteps' book and started Chapter 3 while discussing relevant applications to our lives today. We also discussed current events. In the 2nd hour, we had 3 girls from the graduated youth group lead a planning session for the upcoming Seerah Scavenger Hunt which our group will help organize and run. All students were asked to check their availability for Saturday, Oct. 27th from 11AM to 1PM to help set up the scavenger hunt at MAP. The MAP Sunday School Teachers training will be going on in conjuction that day. Sr. May also spent time after the planning meeting in the 2nd period to review Surah Kaf. 

I have attached the worksheet we used for the 10/14 class. 

Homework: Read Chapter 3 in 'Footsteps' book. Please refer to attached worksheet for 10/21 and answer questions and be ready to discuss. Also confirm availability for Saturday, 10/27 and update on tasks that were assigned during seerah competition planning session.

FYI...all worksheets/handouts for entire class are available in the Google Drive Folder we set up in class. 

Please feel free to contact me with any questions/concerns.

Dear Parents,

Assalamalaikum,

We had a good class on 14th where we covered the chapter on prophets. There was good participation from all the students so that is a positive development. 

Homework:

Students will read about a famous/successful American Muslim and have few bullet points ready about that person before the class. This American Muslim could be in the field of politics, sports, business or Arts. It would be preferred if girls try to find and read about a famous/successful female American Muslim. 

Update on Class Project:

Some of the students have already submitted their project for first semester and some are working on the project. Let me reiterate the details of the project:

Due date: October 28th

Details: Students would prepare a presentation (using Google Slides or Microsoft PowerPoint) on the five pillars of Islam. The presentation would have no less than five slides. Students would mention the main points of the five pillar of Islam. Students would be assessed for creativity, content, and presentation. Students will do a presentation in the class on October 28th.

Thanks,

Arshad
