SK2 Updates: Oct.31 - Nov. 10

As-salamu-alaikum wa Rahmatullah Dear Parents,I hope and pray that all of you are doing well insha'Allah. We had a productive and fun weeks of learning alhamdulilah!

Below are some updates from our classroom.

We reviewed the classroom rules with the students to help them always remember and do their best inshaAllah.

Arabic Language اللغة العربية

Lesson Title: The letters   ح &  خ  fatha,  kasra, dama). We read two stories about the above letters from our big book قصص الحروف
How to write the letter   ح  خ  at the beginning, middle and End.
The students worked on the Arabic letters in the classroom.

Reading: Read the letter ح  خ with short vowels (fatha, kasra, and dama

Writing: Practice writing the letter ح  خ  in the Arabic workbook.
How to write the  ح  خ at the beginning- middle- and end of words.
Orally:  Ask the kids what is your name? and how are you? in Arabic. Know the different between asking a boy or a girl ( feminine and masculine ) كيف حالك ؟ ما اسمـك؟  The kids have to answer in complete sentences.
how many days in a week? كم يوم في الاسبوع ؟

What day is today? ما اليوم ؟

Show & Tell:
SK2 are doing a wonderful job in their show & tell. Insha’Allah we will continue this activity until the end of the year. The Show & Tell is a part of our week that we all look forward to. Children got to share anything they like to talk about. The main thing I am looking for is to encourage the children to talk in Arabic. They can share their favorite shirts, books, and toys with the class through the means of an oral presentation. Please remember to post your child’s Show & Tell on the fridge to remind him/her of the day they suppose to do their turn.

Below are some questions that the students usually use for show and tell:

 ؟ ما لونها 
 ؟ من اين اشتريتها 

 هل هى هدية ؟

؟ لماذا احضرتها معك

 اين تضعها في المنزل؟

؟ هل هي حية ام غير حية

؟هل هى ناعمة ام خشنة الملمس 

؟ هل هى صلبة - سائلة ام غازية

؟ كيف تعمل

؟ هل تطفو ام تغوص

 ؟كيف صنعتها\صنعتيها 

؟ هل هي كبيرة ام صغيرة ام متوسطة الحجم

؟ هل هي سريعة ام بطيئة

من اي مادة مصنوعة ؟

We played a Bingo game about the short vowels in Arabic. The kids had so much fun alhamdulillah. In addition, we played the matching socks game. Please ask your child about it.

We took number Six and Seven. In addition, we finished working in the patterning unit. We integrated the math unit about patterning with Art. The kids used their artistic skills and made different patterns using different sizes and shapes of blocks, in addition, they made their very special bracelets. Way to go SK2!

This activity is about he primary colours and what happens from mixing these specific colours. We did an exciting experiment in class about the primary colours using food coloring. The students had the chance to observe and practice mixing the different colours in their groups. We also learned about the secondary colours that result from mixing these primary colours. Do not be surprised if you see them doing this activity at home :)

Science & Art:

We integrated the lesson about the primary colours in science with Art. Sk1 students drew beautiful pictures using the primary colours.

Since our school's trait for this month is cleanliness. We are talking about how to keep ourselves clean, in addition, we are learning how to keep our desks clean, neat placement of jackets and shoes, clean mouth (not saying bad words), recycling...etc.)

To help the SK2 students better understand this trail, I read the following stories. Please ask your child about it.

Guided Reading:
I am working on teaching the SK2 students how  to read and write simple words/sentences.  We will allow the students to model the teacher by reading simple words/sentences inshaAllah. Below are some of the reading we are doing in class. 

     The title of our booklet is استطيع ان شاء الله

Islamic Studies:
We are learning about the prophets in Islam.  We learned the story of the first prophet, Adam (AS). Please ask your child about this story.

Stars of the Week:
We've had some shining stars in our SK2 classroom. Congratulations to the following students for being the most recent STARS OF THE WEEK are Meryem k., Ali, Jenna, and Salaheddin. We hope to see many more stars brightening up our SK2 classroom inshaAllah.

The stars of the week will be selected every Friday insha'Allah based on overall behavior throughout the week, homework completion, participation, and acts of kindness.

  Jazakum Allahu khairan for your cooperation and support!
