It was great seeing everyone after a three day weekend. We missed our dear friends Omar and Hafi today, and hope to see them back in the classroom soon insha'Allah.
We started off our day today talking about our weekends, and practicing our three duaas.
Teacher Nancy was delayed coming to school, and so we went ahead to the library on our own. We read two amazing books on creativity. The class is learning to identify the following things about a story:
- Is it fiction or non-fiction?
- Who is the main character?
- The setting.
- What can we learn from the story.
During our period three class we did a quick review of the letters s,a,t,i,p,n. We are very good at identifying the beginning sound of a word and now we are working on identifying the ending sound of the word. We do this by stretching out the word, this strategy will insha'Allah help the children write words which they may not know the spelling of.
The class had quraan with teacher Afaaf for period four. The children's homework for this week is to practice ayas 4-6 of surat al-Kafiroon.
In the afternoon we worked on writing the letters Cc, and Kk in our phonics book number 2.
The class ended their day with French with monsieur Said and the students worked on a fun work sheet and they also worked on some new French vocabulary.
Have a great evening,
