Classwork and Reminder

Assalamu Alaikum,

Today we had a wonderful day alhamdulilah!

Reading: Students maintained stamina for 30 minutes while reading to self. I worked with students on the DRA.

Language:We started to learn about verbs. Students worked in groups to make a mind map about verbs on chart paper. Three groups presented their mind maps in front of the class. They all did a wonderful job, Masha-Allah!

Math: Students worked in groups to solve a growing pattern word problem on chart paper, using a T Chart.

We started a new unit in Math called "Number Sense and Numeration." A letter will be sent home to parents soon in shaa Allah. To start the unit we brainstormed the guiding question, "How do we use Numbers?," as a class. We used a mind map and took turns to share how many ways we can see and use numbers in real life. Students then made their own mind map independently on page 12 in their Nelson Workbooks.

Gym: For gym class, we played Dodge Ball.

Social Studies:Today we learned that apart from 7 continents, there are 5 oceans that surround these continents. We also learned the difference b/w a map and globe. Finally, we completed a worksheet where we labelled and located the 5 oceans on the map.

  • Students have a spelling quiz on Monday on the list words from lesson 7 (long vowel a).
  • Homework pack is due tomorrow.
  • Tomorrow is TWIN DAY!
  • Practice Surah Al-Ghashiyah, Ayahs 6-10 for Quran Class.
Have a wonderful evening!
