Classwork and Homework

Alsalamu Alaikum,

Today we had a great day alhamdulilah!

Language: Students are learning how to form compound sentences. I wrote simple sentences on the board and students used the conjunctions but & and to form compound sentences. Students took turns to say 2 simple sentences and each student would write the correct conjunction on his/her white board to join them. Each student wrote three compound sentences on his/her board and shared it with the class.

Math: Students completed a worksheet where they added nickels and dimes by counting by 5s and 10s.

Library: We went to the library and Tr. Nancy gave each student a worksheet where they wrote what they already know about their mammal and what they want to know. Students also wrote down questions that they will research (what, where, when, why, who and how). In shaa Allah first period tomorrow we will go to the library to work on our projects.

Please do not start working on the project with your child now. Students can read about their mammal to learn more about it, but Tr. Nancy and I are working with the class to teach them the steps of research.

Gym: We are running 21 gym Hijra laps! Today we ran 5 laps around the gym. We have 16 to go!
We played Green Light/ Red Light. We made 4 groups and took turns to race each other!

Social Studies: We played a game where the student who caught the ball got to say a continent and locate it on the map. Students wrote the continents on a map.

Homework: Colour the map.

  • Today students left their library books in their desks for our project class tomorrow. If your child has his/her book, please make sure he/she has it tomorrow.
  • Spelling words for next week's quiz on Monday: set, head, help, yet, bread, belt, tent, said, bed, sell + seventh, eighth, ninth, tenth.
I hope you all have a lovely evening in shaa Allah!
