A message from Teacher Nesreen, the Quran teacher :)

Assalaom alaikom wa rahmato Allah dear parents,
I hope you are doing very well. During September, we revised the last four suras the students had in SK (AL-qadr, AL-Zalzalah, AL-Qareaa, and AL-Teen). During Surat AL-Teen activity, the students had the chance to learn how to identify figs and olives by coloring and physical inspection of real samples.

This year, the students will start for the first time learning ‘Nooranyah Rules”. We started the first lesson ((The single alphabets)). Enclosed, is the link for the 1st lesson. We reached the 5th row. Please help your child to keep listening and focusing on pronunciation. Especially, for the heavy letters:
خ ص   ض غ ط    ق ظ

Welcome to a New School Year :)

Assalamu alaikum!
Alhamdulillah, it is the 3rd week of school already...
We are getting things started:
  • by practicing our simple daily routines (lining up, listening, following instructions, respecting the rules, positive reinforcement and consequences, etc.).
  • in writing we are focusing on the correct way in which to write each letter in its capital and lower case form.
  • in reading we are reading stories about school (rules/behavior) as a class and then talking about the lesson/moral.
  • in math we have started working on sorting and patterning.
  • in science are learning about living and non-living things.
  • in art we are working on our friendly monsters.
  • in Islamic Studies (taught in Arabic) we have been talking Hajj, Prophet Ibraheem and Prophet Ismail.  We have had a class (with the help of Teacher Dian, the Islamic Studies Coordinator) where we looked for background knowledge (what had learned about Islamic Studies in Arabic in JK & SK) so that I can plan accordingly.
  • in gym/health class we are working on being safety, working together, and eating healthy.
  • We will be working on social studies after we finish our science unit, we usually alternate between social studies and science in grade one.
*Please note that I usually do NOT send personal emails home unless I feel that you need to be aware of something that happened in class, but please feel free to email me if you have any questions, concerns, suggestions, or/and comments.
*Usually I do not send books home because most of the time, but if you need to take a look at the work we are covering in class, please let me know and I can send the book(s) home.
*Also, if you need anything or feel like you would like to meet please email me and we can plan accordingly, inshallah.
By working together we will have a successful year, inshallah!
