NOTE: The following is the educational portion of summer classes for Atfal. However, all Nazimeen Atfal are encouraged to actively plan a fun activities portion of equal or greater time with Atfal, where they can bond and increase in brotherhood. All such activities should be supervised.
Before going into today’s lesson, please take an update of the following for each Tifl:
- Memorization of Salat
- Daily recitation of the Holy Qur’an, and whether or not they are trying to improve their recitation.
Regarding the memorization of salat, please ensure that each Tifl has a personalized weekly goal for how much to memorize. It is important to help keep each tifl on track to reach the goal of memorizing the full salat. For Atfal younger than 10 years old, the emphasis should be on memorizing salat fully in Arabic. For Atfal older than 10 years, emphasis should be on memorizing the full salat in Arabic with the English translation. Please ensure that each Tifl is keeping up with their goals in this area.
We would also like to emphasize the assigned readings for the Atfal. Please divide the class into 2 age groups. Please read for 10-15 minutes and then have a discussion from the reading. Please encourage the Atfal to review the reading at home.
