We had a great week last week Alhamdulilah!
Reading: Students maintained stamina while reading to self.
Students also completed a writing craft based on a picture book called "The Recess Queen". They all did a great job, Masha Allah!
Writing: On Thursday, we started our second component of DAILY 5 which is Work on Writing. We learned the "I Chart" for work on writing, and then we were given a writing prompt, "What would you do as a Bystander?" to further extend our understanding on the topic of anti-bullying. Students did a great job maintaining stamina while writing independently!
Math: Students practiced ordinal numbers on a calendar worksheet. On Thursday, students wrote a pop quiz to show what they know about numbers.
Issra brought the ESTIMATION JAR, filled with mini M&M boxes. This time, students wrote their estimation on sticky notes individually. Razi got the exact estimation which was 31 M& M boxes, Masha Allah. Razi took home the Estimation Jar to bring it back on Monday!
Library/ Project: On Wednesday, Tr. Nancy brought books about insects and birds, and each student chose his/her animal for the project. Then, she talked to the class about how to ask questions and what a KEYWORD is. After that, students started writing questions about their animal, and underline the keywords. (e.g. Where does the snow owl live?/ What does it eat?).
Science: We reviewed the characteristics of reptiles as a class by playing a game "Hot Potato Pass it on" while sitting in a circle. Student who got on fire had to answer a question about reptiles.Then, students went back to their seats and filled in an "All About Reptiles" worksheet independently.
Gym:We played Freeze Tag and Basketball in our Gym time.
Have a great weekend!
