Weekly updates/Class presentation

from:Ahmad, Javaria

to:Islamic Studies 3

Assalamualaikum, CW: We have reviewed importance of Salah in the class and also covered half of chapter 2. Most of the students did not do their homework from chapter 1. HW will always be the study questions at the end of each chapter. There is a work book that comes and work book is to be used in class room in extra time. The exercises in the work book are not HW. Students are required to submitt their homework on time or this will affect their grades. IMPORTANT: Next week is our class presentation in assembly. Option 1: Students are required to write few lines on faith at least two and why do they think Allah (SWT) is there. They should practice reading it out. Option 2: Students who do not opt to write lines and present can bring my a poster colored presentation on Allah’s names. Draw one name of Allah and color it. Know the meaning of it. A paper is fine too if they don’t have construction paper. PLEASE NOTE: Bringing a presentation next week is very important, there is 10points for bringing it and presenting it in assembly. If some students don’t show up next week they are still required to turn this presentation in and they will not receive full points. Please encourage your children to participate, I am very sure they will enjoy this. HW: Work on the presentation.

Weekly Update for September 16, 2018

from:Alabwaini, Raya

to:Qur'an 5

Dear Parents,

Assalamu Alaikum: Today we reviewed some of the highlights of Prophet Muhammad (S) life until he received the first revelation. Please go over the story of the first revelation in the Cave of Hira with your children. 

I also assigned the first HW assignment which is to memorize first 5 verses from Surah Al-Alaq (see the attached). One method of memorizing is to repeat the verses at least 3 times every day (at different times); within 5-6 days should have it memorized (inshallah). However, any other techniques and methods that you have found successful for your children will also work. 

I also explained to children that we will have an assembly presentation of the stories from Surah Al-Alaq in place of a test. If a child does not want to participate in the assembly presentation, he/she can then take the test (which is to recite the entire surah Al-Alaq from memory).

I will explain more details about the assembly presentations next week (inshallah). Please let me know if there any questions.

Unit A --> Chapter 1 --> Exercise 1 and Exercise 2.

Exercise 1 has three matching questions and Exercise 2 has 9 True/False questions. I do not think it would take more than 10 minutes to complete the homework.

Weekly Update for Sept 9, 2018

from:Alabwaini, Raya

to:Qur'an 5

Dear Quran 5 Parents,

Assalamu Alaikum: On the first day of the class, I briefly reviewed the lesson plans (also attached for your reference) and we came up with class rules.

Please make sure to review the lesson plans and let me know if you have any questions. This class requires memorization of one long surah (Al-Alaq) and few long verses from Surah Al-Hashr and Surah Al-Baqarah. If students practice reciting the HW verses 2-3 times every day (preferably at different times), they will have it memorized in 5-6 days (inshallah).

If your child needs to learn to read Quran, I hope you have already made arrangements. Otherwise, Imam Khalid is available before school every Sunday.

Best Regards,

Ishfaq Ahmad
