In math we learned the meaning of the word capacity. Capacity is defined as: the maximum amount that something can hold. We experimented with goldfish crackers and small containers to see how many crackers we can fit in each container. We also practiced the numbers 13, and 14 in our number booklets.
In language we learned what sounds the letters -ee and -or make, through the story of a donkey that got spooked by some dogs.
In gym we played a game called The Circle of Life. This game involves 4 people that are "it", and they have to touch their classmates. If their classmates get touched, then they have to step inside a hula hoop, and recite the following before getting out: ABC's, count 1-25, surat annas, alfalaq, and alikhlas, and twinkle twinkle little star (each round had a different theme). The kids had lots of fun, while reviewing some of their knowledge.
We had a lot of fun climbing the huge snow piles during outdoor play today! The weather was a bit milder than the past few days alhamdulillah.
Our reading buddies came to our class today and together we read some stories, followed by some fun games.
In Islamic Studies, we learned our 7th, and 8th, sunnas today: they are praying for someone, and help with the chores around the house.
Our classroom pet Sheepy has been visiting many of our friends over the past few weeks, I'm glad to see he's getting pampered with washes, and adorned with jewelry. Jazakum Allahu Khairan for playing along :)
