Sk1 updates! (Dec.16- Dec.19)

Assalam alikum Dear parents,

Language Art:
Alhamdullelah, we finished our third book of Jolly phonics. We covered the following letters: g, o, u, l, f and b. We learned how to rhyme words from the –at family. We also finished some worksheets about the –at family.

We have read several stories about manners and we are learning about story sequencing. Students were asked to retell the story I read for them. MahsaAllah, Sk1 students are doing a wonderful job.
We are learning new sight words. MashaAllah, Sk1 are taking the second step towards reading, and that is combining sounds that we learned to make 3 letter words. Way to go SK1!

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

We have read the following stories about manners.
We also watched a DVD about kindness.




We finished many worksheets about patterns.

We are learning more about living and nonliving.
MashaAllah Sk1 finished many worksheets about it.
Science, Islamic studies and Language project:
 Please check your child’s homework folder for more information!
Islamic studies:
We are finished working in our unit about Tawheed.
We learned about Allah the creator with a beautiful craft. Please check our bulletin board! By now your child should understand that Allah is one, and be able to distinguish Allah’s creation from what man created through the materials that Allah has provided.
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.
Special thanks to:
All of our wonderful Sk1 parents for sending all the delicious food and treats to our class party on Thursday.  Jazakum Allahu kairan for your generous help on that day! Alhamdullelh we had a fantastic time.
 To our parent volunteers Sr. Naaz (Isa’s Mom) and Sr. Lindsay (Kamilah’s Mom) for their help with the reading program.
Wishing you and your family a safe, happy, restful, and warm winter break inshaAllah.
