Assalamu alaikum.

Alhamdulillah today we had some fun while learning.  We worked on clapping out syllables, and sounding out words.  We did a fun exercise with hula hoops, and words.  The children each got a sound, and they jumped inside the hula hoops while making the sound they were given to form three-letter words.  We also jumped from hula hoop to hula hoop according to the syllables in our names.

In math we worked on our new numbers booklet, the main aim of this booklet is to reinforce the right way of writing numbers (not mirror image), and to help with counting and one-to-one correspondence.  We will be working on our last unit in measurement (capacity), tomorrow insha'Allah.

We are happy to be part of the I LOVE THE SUNNA campaign, we are practicing the following sunnas:

1- Saying "assalamu alaikum" when greeting others.
2- Saying bismillah.
3- Wearing shoes starting from the right.
4- Drinking water in three sips.
5- Smiling at others :)

We are reading Charlotte's Web as a class, and the kids are using their imaginations to visualize the images while being read to.  

In gym class we had lots of fun taking part in different obstacle course races mashallah.  The kids are learning how to follow instructions, and they have learned many different yoga and strength-training positions masha'Allah.

I want to sincerely thank all of you that took the time to come and be part of your child's learning journey during Student Led Conferencing, that truly meant a great deal to us and to the students.

Looking forward to a great week insha'Allah.
