Our SK's are now experts at solids, liquids, and gases masha'Allah. To celebrate our accomplishment we will be turning a liquid into a solid by making strawberry jelly inside the classroom tomorrow insha'Allah. We are now talking about the properties of things that are living, and non-living.
In language we have learned the following letters and sounds so far: s, a, t, i, p, n, ck, e, d, h, r, m, g, and o. Alhamdulillah we are learning to sound out words, and to read our morning message with very little help from the teacher.
During Show & Tell the students are learning to present with confidence and ease masha'Allah. They are also asking and answering some very interesting questions from their peers as part of their presentation. Keep up the amazing work masha'Allah.
In math we will be starting our geometry unit after the break insha'Allah. Right now we are working on odd/even, keeping count using tally marks, and recognizing what number comes before a number, and what number comes after. (i.e. the number 4, what comes before it? 3 what comes after it? 5) You can practice this skill with your child at home insha'Allah.
In Islamic Studies we have memorized our 4 monthly duaas mashallah! We are also talking about the character trait of "patience", and how we can display patience in the classroom, and at home.
In art class we have been exploring different materials such as paint chips, wool, markers, and paint. Insha'Allah we will be completing an art project with our grade 4 reading buddies today!
In gym class the students took part in a very energetic yoga class in the classroom, masha'Allah! It was very nice to see the students following along so intently.
Jazakum Allahu Khairan for your constant support and work with your children.
