Description from the publisher:
There are three different books for each grade:
1) The Student's Book 2) The Activity Book, and 3) The Teacher's Manual
There are five content areas:
1) 'Aqeedah (Islamic doctrine), 2) The Glorious Qur'an and its sciences, 3) Seerah (Biography of the Prophet) and Islamic History, 4) 'Ibaadaat (Worship), and 5) Morals and manners
In this grade, learners will discover the wisdom behind Allah's (swt) sending of messengers and revealing divine scriptures. They will also study the true meaning of worship and the status of ihsaan. The Qur'an lessons comprise of the recitation of the 27th Juzu' and memorization of Soorat Al-Muzzammil and Soorat Al-Jinn. Life of Hijrah is the focal point of the Seerah section. It includes the biographies of Uthmaan Ibn Al-Affaan (ra) and Ali Ibn Abee Taalib (ra). The significance of Sawm and Hajj are important topics discussed at this grade level. This book concludes with lessons on the adhkaar said during windstorms or rain, and the etiquette of social gatherings. The material is presented, using a spiral approach, where students revisit each area and study it in greater depth each year. The Activity Book engages the student in additional activities on the same lessons dealt with in the Studentís Textbook. The difference is that the activities in the Activity Book are more analysis - and- synthesis based, than simple recall type activities. There is also a more practical aspect aligned to activities in the Activity Book.
