Weekly update and Math Home connection

Assalamu Alaykum dear parents,

Alhamdulillah we had a very good week. 
This is a list of what we've covered this week.

Reading: making predictions, reading fiction stories.

Writing: students are learning how to build super sentences starting from very simple sentences. To develop a super sentence students have learnt that they have to answer the 5 W's (who, what, where, when, why) and how.


Math: children create and solve story problems involving addition, using place-value concepts.

Social studies: we have covered two important celebrations; the new Hijri year and Canada Day.

Islamic Studies: Hijra of the prophet pbuh.

Science: students have seen what is a Larva and we have also talked about animals that lay eggs (animals that lay many eggs, animals that lay eggs and do not take care of their babies, and animals that lay eggs and take care of their babies)

Homework: Students have their blue H.W folders. Can you please encourage them to start doing it so that they do not rush at the last minute. H.W is due November 13th. 

Math Home Connection: Provide straws or toothpicks that can be clustered into 10s with a twist tie. Ask your child to model one of the following addition problems: 

Have a wonderful and a restful weekend.
