What Our Homeschooling Is Like On Tuesday

Tilawah - After Fajr we are do tilawah of the Qur'an and read its translation. We would focus on tajweed rules especially the maad because the girls sometime did not say it. They rushed in reading. Then we would discuss the ayah we were reading.

Arabic Language - Every Tuesday and Thursday. Alhamdulillah the girls have been doing Arabic nearly 6 years. Our aim for this year is to learn the qur'an vocabulary words, its meaning and spelling test. There is a nice easy way to understand qur'an that we use. My dream is that the girls understand what they read and put it into practise. We will keep on going for Allah sake.

H - Math, SOSE, English and Science.
