Alhamdulillah today we had an amazing day. We practiced lining up, pushing our chairs in, raising our hands, answering the salam (Islamic greeting), and putting our things away. We read the story "The Kissing Hand" which is a cute little story about a raccoon that is feeling a little nervous about going to school for the first time. The children enjoyed taking part in our welcome song "look who's here!", and our calendar routine.
We spent some time outside in the yard today where the students and I collected so many beautiful wild flowers to make a lovely bouquet for our classroom :) After our resting time, we had lots of fun working on our name crowns!
Thank you so much to all of you that were very prompt, and organized in labeling and sending your child's school supplies. Those of you that have not sent in the required items from the supply list, please be sure to do so as soon as possible. ***If you haven't sent indoor shoes and a change of clothes, please make sure you send those in right away.
Jazakum Allahu Khairan, and we look forward to a fresh new day tomorrow insha'Allah.
