Weekly Update (Sep 21-23)

Theme: Eid Al-Adha

Quran, Surah As-Saffat, Ayat 102
And when he reached the age of traveling with him, he said: 'My son, while I was sleeping I saw that I shall slaughter (sacrifice) you, tell me what is your opinion. ' He replied: 'Father, do as you are ordered (by Allah). Allah willing, you shall find me one of those who are steadfast. '

Eid Mubarak Everyone. May Allah accept form all of us, Insha'Allah.

We tried our best to make our dear students feel the Eid and its importance to the Muslims through the following:

- Sang many Eid Nasheeds using our toy drum.
- We made a sheep craft so make sure to take a look at it on our bulletin board.
- We discussed what Muslims do during the Eid celebration. Students shared what they know and what they are going to wear.
- Made the Eid Crown with glitters and pompoms.
- The students were given Eid loot bag full of goodies.

Beside the Eid Celebrations:

- Tr. Hiat made students color and decorated an Eid activity sheet with ribbons and colors.
- Tr. Ibtisam gave gifts besides teaching the Quran.
- Students are learning a lot of new Arabic words: قلم ، ورقة، فرشاة، ألوان، مقص، سجادة،  ... etc. (The words  are going to be repeated throughout the year, Insha'Allah).
- Students also worked on their fine motor skills by the following:
1- Learning how to hold scissors and cut straight lines.
2- Opened a free cutting station.
3- Learning how to grasp a pencil and start following a dotted line from right to left.

- Students have fun playing with the classroom's educational centers:

Coming Up:

Monday, September 28 is our Eid Celebration Field Trip to Midway.
Our Daily Schedule will be published here this week.
Friday, October 9 is a Professional Development Day so there will be no school for the student.  

Jazakum Allahu Khyran
