Social Studies project

Assalamu Alaykom dear parents,

Students will be doing a social Studies project during the winter break.

Choose a world community. Make a research and gather information about this community.
Your report should include:
  • The name of the community.
  • Three things you have learnt about this community (describe and illustrate on picture cards)
You can choose 3 things among these: food, shelter, clothing, communication, education, entertainment, and transportation.
Students can use these links to help them decide which community they'll choose.
Jazakom Allah Khairan

Winter fundraiser for Syria

as salamu alaykum wa rahmatullah wa barakatuh,

In shaa Allah we will all soon be all enjoying our winter break with our friends and families. Ameen!

Before we begin our break the school is trying to have a quick mini-fundraiser for the Syrian crisis.

The deadline to donate would be this Thursday, December 19, before the students go for the winter break.

Whatever you can give your kids is acceptable (money up to $35, warm blankets, coats)
May Allah SWT reward all of your intentions and kind acts of charity in shaa Allah. Ameen!

Classwork and Homework

Assalaamu Alaykom dear parents,
We had a very nice week alhamdulillah.

We've been reading stories (shared reading, individual reading, group reading). We are also working on writing a short story summary.
Students have learnt that in order to write a story summary they should:
Find the main idea.
Add fundamental details.
Mention important details in the beginning of the story, middle and ending.
Introduce Characters and setting.

We have been reviewing and drilling addition and subtraction. Students solve and show their strategies for solving number or story problems. 

We have seen the long u sound.
Spelling test on Thursday, on the following words:
 rule, use, tune, mule, due, true, grew, few, you, cute.

We have studied the following aspects in our unit Air and Water in the Environment:
Air is around us
Air gives life 
Air has weight
Air is invisible
How does air move?
Wonderful Water
The students have enjoyed the experiments that we've done so far.

Social Studies
We've been talking about different communities around the world. We've watched 3 videos about an Indian community, a Pakistani community and a Romanian community.
Students have also worked on a  class project (The community helper I want to be)

Islamic Studies
We've been talking and doing varied activities about salat and khushoo'.

Our theme for art this week is warm colors and cool colors.

Jazakom Allah khairan and have a restful weekend.
Tr Hajer.
