Lots of Updates

Assalamu Alaikum,

Alhamdulillah the children are getting better and better at following classroom rules, and routines.

In Islamic Studies this past Friday we talked about du'aa, and we got a chance to each make our own du'aa after our group thuhr prayer.  Please don't forget to send in hijabs & prayer rugs with your children on Fridays.

SK's Fall Trees

In art class we used q-tips as paint brushes to make beautifully coloured fall trees.  While painting we sang the song:

The leaves are falling down.
The leaves are falling down.
Red, yellow, green, and brown.
The leaves are falling down.

During math class we talked about the number five, and how so many things important to us muslims are connected to the number five.  Five daily prayers, five pillars of Islam, and five fingers on our hands.  We are reviewing our numbers to 10, and then we will be beginning our patterning unit insha'Allah.

In language we are starting to focus on beginning sounds, and are doing quick reviews of one letter each day.  

Science has been super fun! Talking about the 5-senses gets us really excited, today we worked on our 5-senses booklet.  We had to identify things that produce an odour, and those that do not.

Please excuse me for removing clear photos of the children from our classroom blog.  Insha'Allah I will find a secure way of sharing photos with you, as I am sure you enjoyed viewing them.

ANNOUNCEMENTS:

1 - Blankets & pillows will be sent home every 3 weeks for a wash insha'Allah.

2 - If your child is not feeling well, has a fever, or has been ill overnight please do not send them to school.  This will ensure that your child will have the adequate rest needed to recover from their illness, and it will reduce the spreading of viruses & bacteria that are abundant during this time of year.  

3- The schedule has been slightly modified, please check blog for SK2 Schedule Version 3.0.


Jazakum Allahu Khairan for your support,

Safiah Aghliw
SK2 Teacher
