SK1 updates:( Dec 9 Dec 13 )

Assalam alikum Dear parents,

Language Art:
We are still working in our third book of Jolly phonics. Alhamdullelah we covered the following letters: g, o, u, l, f and b. The range of fun activities at the end of this book include: colouring, handwriting practice, puzzles, craft activities, word & picture matching and flash cards. These activities will help the children reinforce their letter sound skills.

Social Skills:
We are working really hard on our social skills! we’re becoming exceptionally good at sharing toys, smiling at each other, and apologizing to each other if we hurt each other’s feelings. Please ask your child about these manners that we are learning in our Sk1 class, talk about it and try to apply the same concepts we are learning at the comfort of their home.

These are some of the manners we are learning and we try to relate it to what Islam teaches us:

Being kind to each other

Respecting Parents, grandfather, mother and the elderly.

Listening to the teachers

Sharing and Smiling to each other

 Sk1 enjoyed watching this DVD about manners: Do unto otters by scholastic.

We read the following stories: I am kind, I will share, I will listen and will you fill my bucket!

Fire Drill:

Sk1 are learning what to do in case there is a fire. Stop, Drop and roll!

We read the story: Arther’s fire drill.

We covered the last two numbers: nine and ten
Currently we are also learning more about patterns: AA, BB, AA, etc

We are learning more about living and nonliving.

Islamic Studies:
We are still working in our unit about Tawheed.
We read many stories related to this unit.
Sk1 are having so much fun singing Allah the creator nasheed.

We are learning a new song:
Twinkle, twinkle, litter star

Who has made you as you are?

Shinning over land and sea

High above the highest tree

Allah made you and made me

He made us so perfectly.
