Library Updates!

Dear Parents,
Assalamu Alaikum
It just seems like yesterday when we were all getting ready to greet the students on the first day of school. Now, June is just around the corner. Time has flown by, subhanAllah!
Please take note that the school library will be closing its student services starting Monday, June 2, 2014. For this reason, we would ask that all the students bring back their library book(s) no later than Friday, May 30, 2014. Please remind your child to bring his or her library book(s) before the deadline.
Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
Have a wonderful day, inshaAllah.

SK1 Updates! (April 28- May 2)

Assalam alikum Dear Parents,
Here are some updates from our classroom:

Language Arts:

Alhamdullelah, we finished phonic book #6. This week we spent some time on the last pages of this book trying to finish all related language worksheets.

Next is the last jolly phonic book # 7.
The progress of this book can be assessed on the skills checklist below:

Recognizes the seventh group of sounds:
qu, ou, oi, ue, er, ar.
Can blend regular words with this group of sounds.
For example: round, brown, queen, butter, farmer, boil, shout.

Can write the seventh group of sounds:
qu, ou, oi, ue, er, ar.
can also write regular words using these sounds, such as:
out, spoil, star, dark, later, quick, quit, count.
Understands that many sounds have more than one way of being written.
For example: <oi>, <oy> (boil, boy), <ou>, <ow> (out, owl), <er>, <ir>, <ur> (her, bird, turn).
Can begin to choose between <er>, <ir> and <ur> in spelling words.
