Latest Updates (May 25- June 4)

Mini Theme (Planting and bugs) الزراعة والحشرات

And a sign for them is the dead earth. We have brought it to life and brought forth from it grain, and from it they eat.

Arabic Language اللغة العربية:
- Students have been listening to a variety of stories related to our mini theme.
-  We are done with the letters ن  and هـ (نرمين، نجوى، نورة، نحلة، نخلة، نمر، نار، نملة) ، (هبة، هند، هلال، هرم، هدهد، هاتف، هدية).
- Jazakum Allahu Khyran Tr. Sahar and Grade 3 students for being our awesome Arabic reading buddies. Masha’Allah, the Grade 3s act like teachers trying to make reading fun for the JKs. They read with different tones of voices, ask comprehension questions, and check for understanding. Way to go grade 3!

Science العلوم:
-    Our little tiny caterpillars are now sleeping in their cocoons. How amazing it is for our students observing the transformation of the little caterpillar turning into a big one, then crawling its way up to the top, gluing itself, then starting to cover itself in the cocoon. Subhan Allah Al Azeem!

- Planting grass was fun! Students learned some new Arabic vocabulary trying to plant in their cups. We had 3 stations:
1- Putting the soil (الطين)inside the cup. 
2- Adding the seeds (البُذور) on top of the soil.
3- Spray some water.


Math الحساب:
-  Finished our patters unit. Students should be able to read, complete and make simple patterns by now. Ask your child to draw a pattern or make it with blocks, kitchen utensils, socks...etc. 

Health and Physical activity الصحة والرياضة:
-          A very big Jazakum Allahu Khyran to all the teachers, staff, and parents who volunteered during the Bike Rodeo and help making it successful. It was very well organized, Alhamdulilah!

Arts الفنون:
-          Dress up like a professional day was fun. We discovered some great engineers, artists, doctors, teachers, and even school principals in our classrooms, Masha’Allah!

- We discovered some great talents in painting and drawing on the sand in our class, Masha'Allah!
