We started off the day working on phonics work followed by Quraan class with teacher Ibtissam. The whole class got rewards for memorizing surat al-qadr masha'Allah!
During period 2 we got to explore our new books about outer space. The children have shown interest in learning more about our solar system, so insha'Allah we will be working on this thematic unit for the next little while.
For period three teacher Salam brought in a nice qetta (cat), Dana was being super attentive and so she had a chance to hold this qetta! The students then worked on the letter qaaf in their workbooks.
We went to the gym during period 4 and Lateen taught the class how to play the game of octopus and that's what we did! Keeping up with our outer space theme, we played a game of alien tag.
In the afternoon we had a our reading program groups visiting the library for their half hour reading strategies sessions. These sessions are run by our amazing volunteers Martha, and Samira, may Allah swt reward them for their time and dedication.
We read a story about a little girl that brought in an alligator for show & tell, and had some nice time to play at the end of the day.
Have a good evening everyone!
