A Message from Tr. Salam Arabic Teacher for Arabic Speakers

اللغة العربية (14/ذو الحجة/1433 ...... 30/10/2012 )

السلام عليكم و كل عام و انتم جميعا في أحسن حال ..... الواجب المنزلي اليوم ، كما هو معتاد غالبا، التدريب على قراءة صفحة 26 ، ومن المستحسن أيضا قراءة الجمل و المفردات للتدريبات التي تم حلها في الفصل ( تدريب -1- 2 ) ص28 .

في هذه المرحلة الدراسية ، السرعة أثناء القراءة ليست هدفنا ، و لكن هدفنا التركيز على القراءة الصحيحة المعتمدة على التقطيع الصحيح للمفردات ، و ليس على حفظ شكل الكلمة .

التقطيع يسهل القراءة على التلميذ بشكل كبير .. فالتقطيع يعني : لفظ كل حرف مشكل كمقطع لوحده ، و لكن الحرف الساكن و المد ( الالف- الواو- الياء ) يلفظ كمقطع مع الحرف السابق له ، و لايلفظ لوحده اطلاقا ، و هذا مانتبعه في الفصل . مثال:

*تعود --------- تقرأ ت / عو / د

*مجتمعون -------- تقرأ مج / ت / م / عو / ن

*عليكم ----------- تقرأ ع / لي / كم / .

*كعادتك -------- تقرأ ك / عا / د / ت / ك .

*سمعنا -------- تقرأ س / مع / نا / ... و هكذا

Head Lice in the Classroom

As-Salamu Aleikum Dear Parents,

we have the unfortunate incident of head lice in our class. Please take the time to check your child and if found go through the necessary steps to remove.

For lice prevention try rubbing some tea tree oil behind your child's ears in the mornings or putting 8-10 drops in their shampoo. Keep in mind that tea tree is toxic if ingested and you should keep away from children and it may cause a rash on those prone to allergies. Tea tree oil can be purchased at any pharmacy.

May Allah protect our children from this.

Hajj Workshop - Tuesday, October 23rd

Students will be participating in a variety of work shops throughout the day.
You may dress your child in a dishdasha or abaya to make their day extra special!

Message from Arabic Teacher Salam Beseiso

اللغة العربية :

في الايام الماضية انتهينا من  : * مراجعة و تعزيز جميع المهارات الاساسية التي تعلمها الطالب في السنة الدراسية  السابقة (أسماء الحروف الهجائية – لفظها مع حركات التشكيل والمدود – التنوين -  التعرف على كيفية تقطيع المفردات الى مقاطع ، لتسهيل عملية القراءة – تكوين جمل صحيحة – حسن الخط ) .

   *بدأنا في دراسة الدرس الاول من المنهج الدراسي لهذا العام ( بلال يعود الى المدرسة ) ، و ان شاء الله سيكون لدينا هذا العام كتاب جميل ملون ، و لكن نعتذر لتأخر وصوله حتى الان ، و لذلك نصور الدرس للتلاميذ بصفة مؤقتة .

الرجاء الاهتمام بمتابعة التلميذ في عمل و اجب القراءة المنزلي ، وضرورة عدم اعتماد التلميذ على حفظ شكل الكلمة اثناء القراءة ، و لكن على التهجئة الصحيحة لها.
                                                         و جزاكم الله خيرا ...المدرسة / سلام

Unit 4: Exploring Addition and Substraction

Exploring Addition and Substraction
In Math we have started looking at Unit 4....
Exploring Addition and Substraction.
Please take the time to read and explain p. 92 to your child.
(An introduction to the chapter.)
Jazakum-Allah Khair for your cooperation!

Unit 1 in Math Completed

As-Salamu Aleikum wa Rahmatullah,
we are moving on from the first Math Unit on Number Relationships. There are several pages remaining in the unit (2) if you would like to complete at home with your child. This is not obligatory.
We received the Math textbooks mid-September and so some of the concepts were taught using worksheets and manipulatives.
This week, Oct. 8th, we begin our second unit!

Math Home Connections

Math Home Connections

Whenever I send the Math book home (almost every day),

try to work on the Math Connections part with your child!

(Fun activities to do together at home...)

Your time spent with your child doing Math,

will reinforce the Math concept taught at school and

will get your child used to the fact that Math

is an every day, every where subject...

it is not just a subject taken at school!
