Assalamaikum Parents,

The lesson of the week was the importance of our neighbors. I asked the kids about how they feel about their neighbors and mostly everything was positive. Each class additionally, made their own neighborhood, where one person was the “nice” neighbor and the other was the “loud” neighbor. We chose the words based on what the students said about their neighbors. In that activity, they learned about how important your next door neighbors are and in general how important neighbors are in Islam. The kids also learned how to behave nicely to their neighbors. We talked about a few saying from the Prophet(S) about how important neighbors are in Islam.

Homework: If you don’t know your neighbors, introduce yourself to them. Make a card or take some chocolates. If you do know your neighbor, tell them how lucky or happy you are to have them as a neighbor.
