October 28th - Updates

Assalamu Alaikum everyone!

The SK2 class is working really hard on making good choices throughout the day.  We are teaching their children that all their actions, and words are their choice.  Therefor they need to make many good choices, and not so many poor choices! The children each have a "Good Choices" card that has the numbers 1-20 on it.  Once they reach 20, they get to choose a special reward from our reward board.  Rewards include: ride on teacher's chair, have lunch at teacher's desk, use classroom tablet, computer time, or have lunch in another class.  Masha'Allah the students are working really hard and trying their best to make good choices.

In language we have taken the letters and sounds that the following letters make: Ss, Aa, Tt, Ii, and Pp.  We are teaching the children the correct formation of the letter in capital form as well as lower case form.  

Our mini-theme for these two weeks is: bears.  Students are learning all about bears, we read the story "Brown Bear, Brown Bear, what do you see?".  We had a fabulous writing class, where the students got to hunt for 10 words, and they were able to copy these words down on their "hunting sheet".  I was really proud to see their enthusiasm and hard work masha'Allah!

In mathematics we are working on ABAB, AABB, and ABC patterns.  We are using patterning blocks to experiment with patterns.  We are also working on counting by 1's, 2's, 5's and 10's. 

In science we are learning about primary colours (red, yellow, blue), and secondary colours. 

In Islamic studies we learned about the hijra and we reenacted the migration of the prophet from Mecca to Madina by walking around the school gym 28 times each!  At times we were taking big steps (walking on mountains), and other times we were bopping up and down as if we were on camels.  We are working on memorizing the nasheed "tala'al badru alaina", and our du'aa for the month of October.  "Allahumma allif baina qulubina, wa asleh thata bainina wa ahdina subulassalam".

In art the students had a chance to be creative and produce their very own unique creation.  We provided them with different art, and building materials and the students designed and created their very own masterpieces!  

Proud teacher of amazing students,
