For those who love books….

Noble Brother books are here!

For those of you who ordered, the books arrived this afternoon.

Note for parents: We were charged extra shipping and customs, so I will be letting you know the cost of that. Hopefully if we spread it among those who ordered, it will come up to being only a modest amount more (a couple of dollars or so).

Very sorry about this. Parents have the right to refuse to pay this extra fee as it is my error in not anticipating potential costs associated with delivery.

I will give out the books with details on Monday.

Jazak’Allahu Kheiran.

Noble Brother Order

Assalamu Allaykum parents and students!

I’ve only now managed to go through all the orders.

(This only underscores why our school needs more parent volunteers to help out with all the miscellaneous work – if anyone out there wants to volunteer for various tasks, do let me know!!!:  )

. .  . I will be making the order on Tuesday, insha’Allah. Anyone who needs change will receive it on Monday (though I did request  exact change only).

Please confirm that your son/daughter’s name is below if you did send in an order for this book. The following are those from whom which I have received both the funds and the form:

Grade 5 & 6 Homework + HAJJ workshop and Noble Brother notes + PST Vote

Assalamu Allaykum all!

I’ve updated the blog so that now you can click on the category you want on the right side of the screen.  If you are looking for an old post on Grade 6 homework for example, click on the grade 6 homework  link.  I hope it will make the blog more user-friendly insha’Allah.

Feedback on anything in the class is always welcome.

Apologies to parents and caregivers who are waiting for our class at the end of day at times. Insha’Allah I will do my best to be sure we are in the gym by 3:30 p.m. daily.

However, please note that we will be having a Hajj workshop on Wednesday October 26 and so tomorrow afternoon (Tuesday) and Wednesday morning drop off and pick up are FROM THE CLASSROOMS ONLY.

Students can bring clothing to wear for the simulated Hajj, an abaya for girls, and ihram for the boys if possible. It promises to be an exciting day for one and all!

Please note that the Parent Support Team is currently taking nominations for its members, so if you did not receive the form, please let me know through your son/daughter’s agenda.

************************

Homework Grade 5 – Complete reflections in journal, “Voting in an election” using t-chart to organize information and including introduction, main paragraphs and details, and conclusion. This is the standard of writing I will be expecting from now on! Good job to those of you who have gotten the hang of it, masha’Allah!

Also, check previous homework post for link to make a crossword for the class if you have not done so already.

Homework Grade 6– Review entire unit and practice the unit review because tomorrow will be a mini quiz to fill it out without looking back. Test on this unit will be on Friday, insha’Allah.

NOTE ON NOBLE BROTHER ORDERING:

We did not reach the full 50 students needed to get the discount, so I will have to look at the numbers and let everyone know how much it will be. IF YOU ARE STILL INTERESTED AFTER THAT, YOU CAN SEND IN THE MONEY & FORM WHICH I WILL SEND OUT SHORTLY TO THOSE WHO SHOWED INTEREST.

PLEASE NOTE THAT NOT HAVING A COPY OF THE BOOK WILL NOT DETRACT FROM THE CLASSROOM LEARNING AS WE READ TOGETHER USING A FLIP CHART SO THAT EVERYONE CAN FOLLOW ALONG. I only offered to arrange orders because many students were enjoying the book and wanted to have their own copy.

Jazak’Allahu Kheiran for you support. Please email me whenever you need to contact me on any issue, or phone.

Grade 5 & 6 (and Grade 8, if you are interested!): Would you like to buy this book….?

Assalamu Allaykum dear students and parents,

Both our Grade 5 & 6 students are reading weekly from this excellent book on the life of our Prophet Muhammad, may peace be upon him, as part of our oral/reading component of the curriculum.

Students seem to really be enjoying the experience, and I would like to offer to arrange to bulk order the book for students who are interested in having their own copy. It’s always a good idea to expand our at-home libraries to include Muslim titles, and this one is a good one.

If we get 50 students interested in ordering a copy, the price will be approx. $8 per copy (including shipping from the US).  To purchase it normally, the cost would be $9.95 + shipping.

Please let me know by Tuesday, October 17  if you would like me to place an order for your son/daughter. Simply write a brief note in their agenda.

I am always on the look-out for books that include Muslim themes and history, so I hope to suggest such titles regularly, insha’Allah.

Many thanks for your support!
