Age group: 9-10

Main Focus:  To build upon previous grade levels in building a basic level of comprehension in Arabic.  Further practice in the rules of Tajweed and in the principles of correct understanding of literary devices in Qur'anic Arabic.

Learning Abilities: At this level, students will be able to do independent work with minimal instruction.

Formats to 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 instruction.

Preferred Format: Oral drills coupled with practice exercises are a must.  Grammar can be practiced in simple dialogues.
