Getting back into school mode :)

Assalamu alaikum!

Alhamdulillah we had a very smooth transition back to school.  

The students worked on learning the numbers three and four.  In language we read the story of "The Giving Tree", after this story we discussed the main ideas of the story: kindness, giving, compassion, and happiness. 

We also used our math skills and reading skills to follow a playdough recipe, alhamdulillah we made a huge batch of blue playdough for us to enjoy in the class.  

Here is the recipe we used for our playdough in case you want to make some at home with your child:

  • Playdough Recipe
  • 1/2 cups salt
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 2 tbs cream of tartar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tbs oil
  • 3 drops liquid food colouring

This week we will covering the following topics insha'Allah:

Language: The letter Uu, and Ll.  We will be learning how to break a word into syllables, this will come in handy once the children begin to write independently insha'Allah.

Math:  In mathematics we are still working on the following skills: Writing and reading number words, using tally marks to record a number, and using dice to roll and record.

Science: In science we are working on the concept of Living Things vs. Non-living Things.  Insha'Allah we will be introducing the children to an in-class diorama project that they will be working on.  

Islamic Studies:  This months character theme is "leadership", we will be talking about the greatest leader of mankind Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).

Looking forward to an amazing week insha'Allah.
