SK2 Weekly Updates!

As-salamu-alaikum wa Rahmatullah,

We had finished a very busy learning week in SK2 Alhamdulillah. Here are some updates from last week:

Language Arts: First, we completed the review of all alphabets, Alhamdo-lillah. Then, we started our Jolly Phonics workbook 1 for practicing the alphabets. We learned how to sound out the letter "S" and we also started letter "A" sound. We will cover 2 letters every week and will practice sight words.

Math: We reviewed, practiced, traced and printed numbers "7" & "8".

Science: We introduced our Fall unit by reading a book "Mouse's First Fall" and discussed about the things that happen in Fall and what we do in Fall. We will be doing lots of other activities in our Fall unit.

Islamic Studies: We learned about the fifth pillar of Islam "Hajj" and did lots of different activities which will go on the bulletin board for display. Students had lots of fun learning and doing Hajj activities,

Visual Arts: We did Hajj related crafts, such as painting the 3D model of  the Kabah, Hajj Passports, Hajji's, Jamarat Stone Count and will be doing a few more early next week.

Homework News 
Yes, we do have homework in Senior Kindergarten at Abraar! We believe that parents are our partners in education and extra support and practice at home is very important to a child's success.

1. A homework folder that goes home Friday after school is to be returned on Wednesday. Friday homework will include worksheets that reinforce concepts and ideas learned throughout the week. Homework will range from math, hand writing practice, reading, writing etc.

2. After Eid, Insha-Allah, students will be given a reading folder every Monday to be returned Friday.

Jazakumullahu khaira for your support and co-operation!
