Focus: To increase the practice of good handwriting and to
give students the practice necessary to become readers of the Arabic text
of the Holy Qur'an in a basic way.
Abilities: By this
age they are able to read Arabic script, though comprehension will vary
depending on their grounding and educational experience.
Avoid: Do not
structure the class into a lecture format with a lot of note-taking or
pencil work. Do not make memorization of words the main focus of the
Qur'an reading practice, conversational drills, writing practice and an
emphasis on how Arabic uses "Root Letters" through examples and
