Classwork and Homework

Alsalamu Alaikum,

Today we had a wonderful day alhamdulilah!

Spelling/ Writing: Students wrote their spelling quiz. The bonus was to write why we have fundraising dinners.They did some proofreading in their spelling books and they wrote a joke using the list words.

Library: Tr.Nancy read Sort It Out and she talked to the students about how to choose information.

Gym: We played FAST and Green Light/Red Light.

Science: We went to the Sound and Light Gallery Walk. Masha'Allah their work was lovely!  Students sat on the carpet and we watered the plants for our experiment. We looked at both plants and talked about some of the differences between the plant that is getting sunlight and the one that is in the dark. Students went back to their places and they drew both plants (after one week) in their booklets.

Islamic Studies: We learned more about the manners of a Muslim. We read stories about good Muslim manners in our I Love Islam text books.

Quran: Surat Al-Balad ayas 1 to 15.

Homework: Pray
                   Read a story.

                   Do an act of kindness at home to share with the class tomorrow.

Reminder: Tomorrow students will start taking the milk for the second order in shaa Allah.
