What a beautiful winter day it was today, the weather was so nice and crisp alhamdulillah.
On Wednesdays we start off our day with our themed centres for one hour from arrival. Some students did some patch-work coloring of Elmer the elephant, while others were tracing 2D shapes onto papers. Some were cup stacking, while others were building forts. Alhamdulillah, it was a nice start to our day.
We read one chapter from our Charlotte's Web big book, the children really enjoy being read to and learning new words masha'Allah.
We had our first school lock down drill today. The students have been practicing this week, and they did an amazing job of huddling together and hiding quietly until it was safe to come out. Insha'Allah we will never be put in a situation where we have to perform this safety measure. But if we do, we are ready!
Our class had a shorter than usual library visit today because of the lock down, and so we didnt get a chance to select book. Teacher Nancy read us a nice story about a bear that wants to be left alone to hibernate.
We worked on our math booklets, and had a great time listening to everyone's show & tell.
Two of our friends were greatly missed today, we look forward to having them rejoin our class soon insha'Allah.
Looking forward to an awesome remainder of the week.
