Today we really enjoyed our full hour of educational play centres alhamdulillah. We had our morning circle time and the children had the chance place their donations for Syrian refugees inside our collection jar, may Allah swt reward you all for sending in donations, so far we have collected $325 masha'Allah!
In preparation for the hajj workshop we talked about the steps of hajj, and we worked on a worksheets that helps us visualize the tawaf, and the sa'i between Safa and Marwa. We sang a hajj song together, and we are so excited about performing our hajj in the school tomorrow. Please do not forget to send abaya/hijab with the girls, and thoub/jallabiya/kufi/ihraam with the boys.
We had a great time learning new French vocabulary with teacher Said, and we worked on a nice mouton (sheep) coloring activity.
We really enjoyed playing outside in this beautiful sunny weather, please be sure to send in water bottles with the children this will help keep them hydrated throughout the day.
We ended off our day with an Arabic lesson from teacher Salam. The children were introduced to fatha, kasra, and dumma through a fun story that integrated Arabic with healthy eating and nutrition.
