SK2 Weekly Updates!

Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatu Allah Wa Barakatuhu

Dear Parents,

Here are some updates from last week:

Language Arts: We covered sounding out and printing letters "S" "A" and "T" in "Jolly Phonics." We reviewed and practiced those letter sounds everyday. I encourage all parents to go to this website and please practice with your child the letters we learned so far. It's a great website to practice phonics!

Math: We reviewed, practiced, traced and printed numbers "9" & "10".

Islamic Studies: We learned about "Hajj" by making different crafts and we decorated a beautiful Bulletin board display in our classroom. What an amazing work by all the young muslims in SK2! We also attended the Hajj workshop and students had lots of learning and participated in fun activities.

Homework News 
No homework for this week, enjoy your Eid Holidays.

Reading Buddies: As part of the Literacy program at Abraar School, we started our reading buddies program last Thursday. Tr. Saher's grade 4 students visited young readers in our classroom. They will be reading to their assigned buddies every second Thursday, insha-Allah. The SK2 students really enjoyed the activity, and are looking forward for the next session.

Sr. Madline is a well known volunteer at Abraar School and Salim's mother in SK2. This year, Sr. Madline will be contributing to Early Literacy Reading Program with us insha-Allah. She already started reading in groups to help children as an independent readers. A big thanks and Jazak-Allahu-khairun for her commitment and time. May Allah reward her for her efforts.

Enjoy your break and Eid Mubarak everyone!
