Weekly update (April 13-17)

Theme: At Home في البيت

عن أبي موسى الأشعري رضي الله عنه أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم:

((مَثَلُ البَيْتِ الذي يُذكَرُ اللهُ فيه، والبيت الذي لا يذكرُ الله فيه مَثَلُ الحيِّ والميِّت))

[أخرجه البخاري ومسلم عن أبي موسى الأشعري]

Our next theme is "Farm Animals" since we are taking the students for a field trip to the farm and they are going to see chicken eggs hatching in our classroom. We will focus more on baby animals, life cycle of a chicken, farm animal products...etc.

Arabic Language اللغة العربية:
- Alhamdulilah we finished our theme في البيت (At home).
- We are done learning the letter ف: فيل، فأر، فراشة، فراولة، فاروق
-Alhamdulilah our field trip to the Museum of History was very exciting and fun. Students participated in two workshops, helping hands and bakery, as well as watching a documentary about the flight of the butterflies.

- Our swimming field trip to the boys and girls club was fun. Students had so much fun in the water and for the first time could not argue about nap time. Everyone slept for almost an hour!

(An e-mail will follow with all the student's pictures, Insha'Allah)

- A very big Jazakum  Allahu Khyran to the Arabic team for arranging an outstanding Arabic festival. Everyone enjoyed the student’s performances.
