Then, we completed a Venn diagram where we compared two characters in the story - (Jean and Sue).

Today we completed lesson 10 in our spelling books where we learned words with the long vowel sound u.

Math:Students completed word problems in groups and independently about ordinal numbers, and practiced greater and less than by completing a worksheet and on their whiteboards. Today they showed the estimation jar number using WIN and ten frames. Then, they completed page 17 in their math workbook independently.

Yesterday, Battal brought the ESTIMATION JAR, filled with candies. In their teams, students wrote their estimations on sticky notes. The team with the closest estimation got more candies.

Issra will be bringing the estimation jar on Thursday inshaa Allah for more fun!

Yesterday we started to learn about reptiles. Students watched an educational video about reptiles and completed a worksheet about it.

Art: Students used markers to colour coffee filters, we sprayed them with water to spread the colours, and we will be making beautiful birds with them this week , in shaa Allah.
