- Scholars of Islaam - Ulama - We used this and learnt about the Scholars. We learnt the characteristics of the Scholars and what they do for us and also learnt about few scholars from the early generation and the current scholars who adhere to them. We wrote down some points on the Islaamic Studies book. We also spoke about Taabieen and the At baaut Taabieen.
- Grammar - Quantifiers.
- Reading and Writing - We finished reading aloud the Treasure Island. Maimoonah was also busy reading the new set of books that we got recently. Abi bought her some notebooks and she was busy writing all by herself and all what she wants.
We also started doing this work book which turned out to be a good revision.
We continued with subtractions.
Science/ Social Studies
We learnt about Outer Space, Sun, Moon, Day and Night, stars, and Planets. We have covered this last year so we did some worksheets and read a lot from the books we have. Emphasised again that the earth does NOT go around the sun, rather it is the sun that goes around the earth. We learnt the hadeeth of the sun seeking permission to go down thus the day and night happens and also discussed about the fact that when Allaah does not give permission for the sun to set, that is a sign for the day of Judgement and no repentance will be accepted after that.
We learnt about the Sun and the phases of the Moon.
We did the Scavenger hunt for the study of the Planets. Explained to her that the most planets are named after Greek so called gods and goddesses aoothubillaah, and Allaah did not name any planets and we only refer to them for studying purpose and we do not believe in those names as they are full of shirk.
We did a home made kind of a magnifying glass: ) using cardboard, tape and drop of water!
Alhamdulillaah Maimoonah's reading in Arabic is improving even though she does not like to put too much effort. This week she wanted to read the names of the Prophets in Arabic. Since this was her own initiation I was happy and she did this puzzle all by herself. she changed the names of the Prophets from English to Arabic. she brought me each Arabic Card and read it to me and then replaced it. There is no Haraqaat on it but she read, may be because she knew all the names of the Prophets but she basically read to me and when she was stuck I told her the haraqaat for some letters and she caught it.
