SK2 Weekly Updates - Nov 18 - Nov 22

Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatu Allah Wa Barakatuhu

Dear Parents,

Here are some updates from our class.

Language Arts: In Phonics, we started "Jolly Phonics workbook 3" by learning the sounds of the letters "Gg" and "Bb," Alhamdo-lillah. In workbook 3, we will learn to recognize the third group of sounds: g,o,u,l,f,b. Also, in this workbook, we will learn to blend simple, three letter words made up from the sounds that we have learned so far. We will also understand how to hear the middle sound of a word. The word list from book 2 are: Hen, Pen, Net, Hat, Can, Cap, Rat, Man, Do, Me, & Cat.

 Literacy tips:    
  • Read for 20 minutes with your child everyday.
  • Please go to at home to do some extra practice for the sounds we already covered in class.
  • Play "I spy with my little eye" something that starts with ____ and say the sound of a letter (for e.g; ta..ta..ta..for letter T). 

 Anti- Bullying Week: The week of Nov 18-22 was anti bullying week at Abraar School. We read different story books about how to be a bucket filler and not to be a bucket dipper. We also made an anchor chart as a class about bucket filling and bucket dipping. Sk2 did an amazing job by sharing and caring throughout the week, Masha-Allah. Good Job SK2!!!

Math: We are learning how to write numbers in words and reviewing how to do tallies in our Math class.

Math tips: Have your child skip count by 10’s out loud.

Science: In Science, we have finished our unit on “States of Matter” by doing a fun experiment. We observed the transition of matter from solid, to liquid, and then to gas. Sk2 had a blast by watching how gas is formed in a balloon.

Islamic Studies/ Visual Arts: We practiced the nasheed "The Five Pillars of Islam". Here is the link for the video:

Also, we started working on our “Five pillars of Islam File Folder game craft,” Alhumdulillah.

Jazakumullahu-khaira for your co-operation and support!
