Lovely Week

Alsalamu Alaikum,

Dear Parents,

I hope you are all well.

This week students had their CTBS Test. They learned about classroom rules during a test and how to listen to instructions and follow them.

We talked more about rules and regulations in Social Studies class. We also learned about our responsibilities as Muslims.

We played Pizza, Octopus and  today we went out for the Terry Fox Run.

We talked about "Hajj"and the Kabah.  We talked about Eid and the different things we do with our families in Eid. We also made sheep and put them on paper bags in Art class! Students really enjoyed decorating their paper bags!

We talked about how we should always remember the hungry people all over the world and sang a lovely song about how we are one human kind!

Alhamdulilah we had a great week!

In shaa Allah next week we will learn more about Hajj and Eid and do lots of lovely activities!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Alsalamu Alaikum,

Dear Parents,

Kindly note that next week students will take their CTBS test- (Canadian Tests of Basic Skills) on September 24th for three consecutive days in shaa Allah. This test will not be included in their report cards. It is a diagnostic test used to determine the level of the students.

The CTBS test will enable us to identify student achievement in major curriculum areas including Vocabulary, Reading, Language, Mathematics and Science.

In shaa Allah I will talk to students about the CTBS test on Monday and explain to them exactly what is expected from them on this test, so that they are prepared in shaa Allah.

Jazakum Allah Khair.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Great Week Alhamdulilah

Alsalamu Alaikum

Dear parents,

We had another great week at school Alhamdulilah!

We talked more about the school rules and students practiced applying them.

We read sentences and learned the difference between sentences and words. Students wrote capital and small letters in class. We read books and talked about the importance of reading.

 Students wrote missing numbers. They counted shapes and sea creatures and circled the greater numbers. We counted backwards from 10 and forward to 20. Students coloured buckets of numbers and letters using different colours.

In Social Studies we talked about how there are rules everywhere and why it is important to have rules. Students learned about what some of those rules are and why it is important to apply those rules.

We learned about different lines. Students drew lines in leaves using different colours. They all did a wonderful job masha'Allah!

We played "Octopus" and "What Time is it Mr. Wolf".

We said the duaa for the month (sayid alistikhfar) every day. Students learned more about how to make wudu' and perform prayer.

It was a great week alhamdulilah!

I hope you all have a great weekend in shaa Allah!

Some of the Lovely Things We Did This Week!

Alsalamu Alaikum,

Dear Parents,

This week we learned, played and got to know a lot more about each other at school. We talked a lot about rules and did a lot of practice. Please ask your children about the school rules and ask them why it is important to follow them.

We talked about family members and the people we love. Students told the class about the different things they like to do with their family and how they are grateful for having them. Students drew pictures of their family members in flowers.

We talked about what Math is. We counted from 1 to 10. We also counted backwards from 10 to 0. We counted different objects in the classroom. Students wrote missing numbers in a worksheet and on the board.

Students said the alphabet and wrote capital and lower case letters in a worksheet. Students colored fish using different colors to differentiate between capital and lower case.

We read books and talked about the different reasons people read.

We played "Chinese Whisper"!

We learned our theme for the year, Duaa. We got to understand the meaning of duaa and how to make duaa. We prayed and discussed the importance of standing with respect when praying.

We had a great time alhamdulilah!

Today students took red folders with the alphabet and numbers home. Kindly make sure your child completes "B "and the number "2". Students should ONLY complete "B" and "2". Please make sure your child does NOT do more than that in the folder.

Looking forward to a great year in shaa Allah!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

Jazakum Allahu Khair
