Class Updates, Homework and Important Reminders

Assalamu Alaikum,

Here are some class updates from last week,

Language:We used a strategy called mind map to organize information about our character education theme of the month, "Cooperation". mind map is a diagram used to visually organize information.

Reading: Students maintained stamina for 25 minutes while reading to self and I worked with some students on the DRA.

Science: We reviewed  the characteristics of birds as a class. Then students worked independently to write 5 special things about birds.

Math: We solved a growing pattern word problem as a class using a T-Chart, and then we wrote what we used to solve the problem (WIN: words, illustration, numbers). After that, students worked independently to complete a worksheet on growing patterns where they extended growing patterns and explained it in aT- Chart. 

Islamic Studies: On Thursday, we finished reading the story of Prophet Adam and we learned the names of Allah (SWT), Al- Ghafar, and Al- Ghafoor (The All Forgiving). Yesterday we reviewed the story of Prophet Adam by watching a video and then took turns answering questions about the story.

Art: Yesterday, students used egg shells to make a lovely frame with Allah's name, Al- Awal. They all did a wonderful job Masha'Allah.

Clean up Time: After making a mind map about cooperation. the 2Bs worked together to sort, clean and organize our class. They did a fabulous job working together masha'Allah!
