We would like to welcome our friend Hakim to SK2. Hakim has already made many friends, and is a great addition to our class.
We had a great start to our day today with some hands-on learning centres. Students were encouraged to visit two or three of the available centres. Here are the centres that were available, and the goal of each centre:
1- Word Wheel: Students use the word wheel to make words, read them, and then write them.
2- Roll and Record: Students roll a set of dice, count the dots, and write the number on their tracking sheet.
3- Play-dough Words: Students use play dough to write out the words.
4- Bananagram Letters: Students use letter tiles to form words that match the words on their cards.
5- Geoboards: Students use colourful rubber bands to make geometric shapes and alphabetical letters, and numbers!
6- Number Puzzles: Students worked together to help build 2 different numbers puzzles.
After our centre time we had our calendar time. During calendar we have been working on patterning, and graphing. We also try and figure out what we should wear at recess depending on the afternoon temperature that the students tell the class about. (thank you for telling your child the temperature in the morning, this makes them very excited to share this information during calendar time).
In Arabic the students worked on the letter taa and vocabulary with that letter. They are also learning the days of the week, and the welcoming song.
We had gym during period 4, we started off doing our usual warm ups including yoga, planks (ask your child to do this!), and other muscle building exercises. We worked on different types of movement: running, jogging, side shuffle etc. Due to popular demand, we ended our gym class with two games of the Pizza Game.
In the afternoon we had our Wednesday show & tell. Many interesting items today masha Allah! Wooden Quraan holder and giraffe spoon, coffee, a mug, some stuffed toys, a lego ship, the mater character from cars, and dark chocolate.
We got to visit the computer lab for the first time today. The students enjoyed some interactive games from TVO kids, and Starfall. If you have not sent in head phones for your child, please do so at your earliest convenience.
The students reached 10 points on their daily challenges, they were rewarded with some Timbits.
Have a great evening everyone,
