Mashallah we had 98% of the class in yellow today! We enjoyed bananas at snack time and learned the meaning of the word mellow.
we started off the day today with some language and math worksheets, the aim of having these worksheets is to help the children work on their penmanship and fine motor skills insha'Allah.
The children had Quraan with teacher Ibtissam, the students were being tested on surat al-adiyat.
After Quraan class we had calendar and science. We learned about materials that can absorb, and about observing experiments and making predictions. We are observing an experiment called "walking water" in this experiment we can see how water gets absorbed through paper towels.
During Arabic class the students are learning a new letter, the letter ص - Saad, they are also learning vocabulary associated with this letter.
In gym class we had a lot of fun warming up and doing some yoga and strength training exercises. We also played a very competitive game of ant tag, and pac-man, insha'Allah we will be learning soccer baseball next.
In the afternoon we divided up into our reading program groups and the students took turns going with our wonderful volunteers to the reading program. Thank you so much to Ammaar's mother (sister Samira), and sister Martha for helping us run the program.
We also worked on our Hansel and Gretel play and ended the day with a nice game of heads up seven up.
Have a great evening everyone!
