Last Week's Class Updates.

Assalamu Alaikum

Dear Parents,

Language: Students practiced summarizing stories and also learned narrative writing. 

Math: We practiced division using strategies of equal groups and repeated subtraction. We also had a pop quiz on Division.

Science: Students made a brochure on Simple Machines which is an integration to media literacy. They did a great job mashaAllah. On Friday, students also wrote a quiz on movement .

Islamic Studies: Last week, we read and discussed  " Taqwa-Allah Sees Me All the Time" and " I Fast in Ramadan". We are also practicing nasheeds for the "End of the Year "celebration.

Class Dojo Party: Grade 2 students attended a carnival in the gym as a part of their last class dojo party for the school year. There were games, face painting, henna, and plasma cars for students to enjoy and have fun. Jazak Allahu Khairun to our parent volunteers for making that event possible, Alhumdulilah! We could not have done it with out them :)

Surprise Party:The wonderful and truly amazing Grade 2B students threw a surprise party for their teacher! It was totally a surprise for me! I don't have any words to express my feelings and  emotions for the kind gesture that my students showed to me. I only want to say Alhumdulilah and may Allah (SWT) bless them all!

Have a great weekend!

Biography Project: Today Layan presented her biography project, and masha'Allah she did a great job!

We also watched The Ant and the Grasshopper, and students wrote the setting, moral and summary of the story independently.
