 Assalamu Alaikum,

Alhamdulilah we had a great week!

Students completed a worksheet where they chose a pet and wrote reasons why this pet is good and how they would take care of it. The next day, we talked about different parts of a friendly letter. Each student wrote a letter to his/her parents convincing them to get a pet.
Reading: Sr. Madlein came and she read an interesting book called " Enemy Pie" teaching children how to turn enemies into great friends :)  After that, students answered comprehension questions about the book.
