Second day of School!

Assalamu Alaikum,

We had a wonderful day today alhamdulilah!

Reading: Students sat on the carpet and I read "How I Spent my Summer Vacation". Students took turns and shared with their peers how they spent their Summer vacation.They went back to their places and drew pictures in sunglasses of some of the lovely places they visited and great things they did!

IPICK: One significant theme mentioned throughout Daily 5 Reading and Literacy CAFE is teaching students to pick “good fit” books. An important part of becoming a successful independent reader is being able to choose “good fit” books.Today we talked about how to choose a good fit book.We used an acronym " IPICK" and discussed each letter in detail.Then students took turns to go book shopping from the class Library.Each child has an individual book bin to keep their books. Ask your child about IPICK and book shopping, and see what he or she has to say!

                                          I PICK Good Fit Books
I choose a book
Purpose – Why do I want to read it?
Interest – Does it interest me?
Comprehend – Am I understanding what I read?
Know – Do I know most of the words?

At the end of the day we went to the playground!
