Friday's Classwork

Alsalamu Alaikum,

We had a great week alhamdulilah!

Math: Students completed page 57 where they estimated the number of swings different activities would take and they worked in pairs to count the number of swings using a pendulum.

We used a clock to learn how the minute and hour hands move and how many times the hour hand completes one turn a day. Students completed page 58 where they recorded how many times they can repeat an action in one minute.

Writing: Students worked in groups to form simple sentences. They circled the subjects and verbs using crayons and took turns to read their sentences in front of the class.

Science: We watched a video about vertebrates and invertebrates. Students learned that mammals are vertebrates and we listed some characteristics of mammals as a class.

Gym: Students took turns to race each other. We had a great time!

Razkids: We explored Razkids (a great reading website) as a class. Students learned how to use the website to enjoy the great books.

  • Today students took home their Razkids letter with the username and password. Please encourage your child to explore the website and read some of the books.
  • Students were also given a Terry Fox Run form. Please sign it and send it to school with your child on Monday.
  • Students were given forms for the milk program. If you would like your child to be part of the milk program, please fill out the form and send it with your child on Monday.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend in shaa Allah!
