Al hamdu lillaah, the children really love this part of the week. Everyday the children receive a new letter to study until the they’ve acquired four to five letters. This group of letters is correctly pronounced, written (firstly using a book with dotted letters, secondly on small individual chalkboards), read and reinforced using several different games and activities associated with each letter.
Once we are sure that the class, as a whole, has firmly grasped it new letters we have a fun and exciting cut and paste exercise that the children just love so much. Thier حروف الأسبوع (Letters of the Week) sheets are energetically taken home to display to their parents not only what they have made with the little hands but also what they’ve learned.
