We started off the day with some educational centres. The students were taking part in a playdough building centre, ramps and balls centre, snakes and ladders, puzzles, and art centre.
During Arabic class with teacher Salam the students learned the correct pronunciation of the letter daal with fatha-dumma-kasra. Mashallah they were able to identify these words by hearing how they sound and then identifying their beginning letter.
In gym class we did some warm ups and yoga, followed by three different games. The students are really improving in their ability to understand that 1) sometimes you win and sometimes you don't, and there's no need to cry. 2) Sometimes you don't get a turn, and that's ok you need to be patient.
In the afternoon we worked on a small reading book that helps students practice the long-A sound. The students took these books home and promised me they would practice reading them :)
We ended the day with a nice trip to the computer lab. The students worked on patterning, beginning sounds, and shapes on www.starfall.com.
Have a good evening everyone!
