The following day each student wrote a letter to a crayon convincing it to not leave, and explaining how special it it. 

On Friday Al-Hussein's sister read us "The day the Crayons Came Home". We had a good laugh

Last week we learned about perimeter and how to measure the perimeter of different shapes (2D and 3D) through lots of different fun, hands-on activities. Students also did a penny flick activity in the hallway and in class where they had to flick a penny to measure how far it can go. They had a lot of fun, Alhamdulliah! 

We also had fun playing measurement games!

Today's Updates and Reminder

Assalamu Alaikum,

Today we had a wonderful day alhamdulilah!

Reading: Sr. Madlien joined us and read a great book called "A Tower of Giraffes" about animal bunches. Students completed a fun word puzzle about animal bunches, and we got to learn some great new vocabulary about animal bunches.

Math: Students finished measuring each other using string, each student measured his/her footprint using snap cubes and they recorded their answers.

We watched the first half of a video called "How Big is a Foot?" where a king wanted to give his queen a bed as a gift. Students worked in groups to make beds for the queen that were 6 feet long and 3 feet wide (measurements from the story) only to find that the beds were different sizes since our feet are different sizes. We finished watching the video and learned that using STANDARD UNITS would be so much easier!

Islamic Studies: Students answered questions about "Duaa" in their "I Love Islam workbooks, each student wrote a prayer and shared it with the class.

Gym: We went with the 2Bs to the gym for more Jungle Sport fun, and we had a fabulous time alhamdulilah!
