SK2 Updates - Nov 4 - Nov 8

Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatu Allah Wa Barakatuhu

Dear Parents,

Here are some updates from our class.

Language Arts: In Phonics, we covered the sounds of the letters "H" and "R", Alhamdo-lillah. We also played Bingo to practice sight words from Jolly Phonics book 1. Please go to to do some extra practice at home.

Math: Last week, we learned how to create and extend the "ABC" pattern. SK2 did lots of fun filled learning activities with the "ABC" pattern (Worksheets, manipulatives, and educational centers). Here are some of the "ABC" patterns done by SK2. Way to go SK2!!!!

Science: In Science, we started to learn about matter and the three states of matter.First, we watched an educational video about solids, liquids and gases. Then, we discussed about the things that come into the category of the three states of matter by looking at an anchor chart with pictures of matter. Finally, we learned a fun song about solids, liquids and gases with actions. SK2 had a blast and they really enjoyed the song. MashaAllah.

Visual Arts: We completed the  Dua craft for "Before entering and leaving the washroom."

Islamic Studies: We watched an educational video about the five pillars of Islam and started learning a Nasheed called "Pillars of Islam". Here is the link so you can practice with your child at home as well.

Quran: Message from Tr. Saher: We are practicing Surah Al-Kawther and Surah Al-Maun.

Jazakumullahu-khaira for your co-operation and support!

Important Reminders:

  • As the weather is getting colder, please do remember to send the proper winter gears with your child every day.It is a good idea to label your child's winter clothes. Please dress your child appropriately for the weather, keeping in mind that we go outside daily unless it is raining.
  • Please send back the Homework every Wednesday in your child's folder. Also, please  keep the checked homework at home.
