Day 64

Assalamu alaikum!

We started off our day today with some activity centres followed by our morning calendar.  We read our morning message together and talked about our weekends, and our plans for the winter holidays.

We visited the library and checked out some books to read over the winter holidays.  Teacher Nancy also read us a story about rocks, and all the different uses of rocks.

During period three the grade 4 reading buddies visited our classroom and we worked together to create some puppets and then the children worked together with their reading buddies to create a story for their puppets.  The last part of the class was spent presenting their story to another group.  Masha'Allah most of the students worked really well together with the grade fours.

In Quraan class teacher Ibtissam played a nice game with the class to help reinforce their knowledge of the heavy letters.  Students got to feed the hungry monsters some heavy letters, and then they got to pick out some questions from the egg basket to answer them.  

In the afternoon we read a chapter from Charlotte's web and had French class with monsieur Said. 

Have a great evening,
