Welcome to our Level One Quranic Studies Class

Assalamu Alikum Dear Level 1 Parents,

           I hope you had a wonderful summer and are ready for an exciting year at MCC Sunday School , In Shaa Allah. I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself and welcome your child to this year's Quranic Studies class and curriculum.

           It is my pleasure to participate in MCCSS Quranic Studies teaching for Grade 1 students. I am a native Arabic speaking teacher and this is my fourth  year teaching this subject at MCCSS. I have a Biology degree from Meredith College and a Medical Technology degree from Duke University. I am looking forward to a wonderful year of mutual learning experience In Shaa Allah.

         This year we will be using :

1- Ajmal Al Qawa'id Book

2- A Student's First Guide to Juz ' Amma Book

3- Hadith selected by the administration

Please send with your child every week:

- both books

- 2 sharpened pencils

- an eraser

- a sharpener

-a water bottle

         Although I always have extras with me, but coming to school prepared serves both the student and the class time.

         The main objectives for us to accomplish teaching Quranic Studies for Grade 1 are the following:

1. Learn the correct Arabic Makharij and Harakat.

2. Connect letters to form words to start reading.

3. Know the general meaning of the assigned   short Surahs and learn some lessons from the same Surahs.

4.  Memorize the assigned Surahs

         I believe parents have an important role to play in their children's education and can enhance their children's learning experience by encouraging them to learn their religion and respect the Sunday School by following the school and class rules.

My class rules are:

1. Respect the teacher and  classmates. I ask my students to kindly keep their hands and feet to themselves and use appropriate language.

2. Follow directions.

3. Raise  hand before  answering or needing help.

         Your help at home is highly appreciated and is absolutely necessary for your child's success. I will be sending out regular emails In Shaa Allah updating you regarding any home works and tests.

I humbly thank you for your cooperation.

 

       Please don' t hesitate to contact me whenever you have any question or concern .

I pray to Allah that this year will be a successful year for everyone.

Sincerely,
