Dear Parents, 

This week we studied the letter Khaa.  I told them a story about three sisters on the letter Jeem, Haa , Khaa. I printed out Masjid and praying girl/boy figures and they colored it by playing this story. All students were enjoyed. We also continued practicing surah Al-Ikhlas.

Homework: Review the letter Khaa, trace, color and write.  We will have a test on Surah Al-Ikhlas next week. Make sure your child practicing enough on memorizing. Some of the students still need improvement on writing letters.  Please make sure that your child writes letters many times until to get better. Lastly, if your child missed any assignments, let them bring it to the class. So, I will update grading.


Thank you,
Sibel Yasar
