Toy Sale

Toy Sale

The Senior Kindergarten class will be holding several fundraisers for the SK Graduation at the end of the year. We have done a Toy Sale which was successful ma sha' Allah. We are planning another toy sale on Friday, May 10, 2013. We ask for your cooperation in this fundraising event by donating toys in good condition that are able to be sold. If you are willing to contribute to this toysale please bring in the toys on Thursday, May 9, 2013 or the morning of Friday, May 10, 2013 to the SK classroom.

The Toy Sale will take place all day Friday, May 10, 2013 in the school gym.
The toys will be reasonably priced and all proceeds will go directly to funding the SK Graduation.

If you are able to volunteer on this day please let me know, it would be greatly appreciated!


In language, we are continuing to practice phonemic sounds and writing in our journals. 

We have added comprehension questions (based on stories we read) that the children answer through writing skills and pictures.

Please continue to encourage your child to write and use lots of praise to support their curiosity .

Math- Data Management (Sorting)

Assalamu alaykom,

Sorting at home

Dear Parent/Guardian:
Our class has been examining objects and sorting them based on their characteristics such as colour, size, texture and more. Learning to sort objects is an important skill. You can help your child to develop sorting skills at home by having him/her help you sort laundry, groceries, dishes or toys.

After you and your child have sorted laundry, groceries , dishes, toys or any other objects in your home, talk about how the objects were sorted. Also discuss the importance of sorting objects. For example, it is easier to find dishes in cupboards when they are sorted.

Have fun with this activity, they have a wide imagination on how they can sort objects!

Thank you for your cooperation and support,
Jazakom Allah khayran

Dear Parents,
Assalamu Alaikum

The Scholastic Book Fair is coming to our school this week, and we invite you to come and share in this celebration of literacy with us!

Now more than ever, reading is vital to leading a better life. It is the door opener to the 21st century for all children. Knowing how to read is just the beginning. Motivating young people to KEEP READING, comprehend what they read and develop the ability to think creatively are the end goals.

Children need ACCESS to great books and the opportunity to CHOOSE what they want to read. Moreover, they need TIME for reading.

Scholastic Book Fairs has the books to motivate more reading. With your involvement, we can inspire children to practice reading and read more often. Together, we can make a difference in their lives that will last a lifetime.

One great way to ensure our children get started with reading and keep on reading all year long is with the Classroom Wish List program. We urge you to stop by the CWL display when you first arrive at the Fair. Take a moment to learn how purchasing books and donating them to your child’s classroom, can give little readers even greater ACCESS to the books they want to read by expanding existing classroom libraries.

We asked each teacher to fill-in her “book wish list” prior to the fair. Look for your child’s teacher’s name on the display. All teachers took great care in selecting the best and most appropriate books to meet their students’ reading levels and learning needs. It is their wish that these books become a permanent part of the classroom library. We will recognize every generous gift you make with a special bookplate, identifying your family or child as the donor.

We will display the Classroom Wish List at the book fair, so keep an eye out for it! Your support can help a classroom blossom with new and exciting adventures in reading, stimulating young minds for years to come.

We hope to see you at our Scholastic Book Fair. Together, we can raise readers!
