LESSON3: Seen, Sheen, Saad, Daad, Taa, Dhaa الدرس الثالث

News for Students/Parents/Guardians/ELA's:

Tomorrow. Thursday 9/10 at 8:30pm, we will host our Arabic Culture Cafe where all students, parents, guardians & ELAs are invited to attend and learn about some fascinating Arabic "Faces from Ancient History" in the field of medicine, science, discovery, astronomy, math etc.. See link below!

This week in ِArabic 1 (week 4), we will be starting lesson 3. Two weeks ago, we had started Conversation coaching Sessions! Remember that students are required to attend coaching sessions during their scheduled time. It's 20% of their grade. Coaching sessions are twice a week for 45 minutes per session. Students are required to make up any missed sessions. Many of the students did an AWESOME job attending both coaching sessions. Their coaches and I are amazed of their progress in writing from right to left!

This week in lesson 3: we are learning the next 6 letters in Arabic " Seen, Sheen, Saad, Daad, Taa, Dhaa ". In the "Culture Corner" of this lesson, students will learn about the influence of Arab mathematicians and scientists (Al-Khwarizmi) on our current civilization. There are also assignments that will be due for this lesson. These assignments needs to be submitted by the due date listed on the calendar.

Parents/Guardians/ELA's: Grades will be submitted to the schools next Tuesday for their 2nd progress report. Students can make up their missed assignments. All current and past due assignments must be submitted before then to be included on the progress report. Please be on the look out for that. If you would like a copy of the progress report, please email me the student's FIRST and LAST name.
