Language Arts:

For the last two weeks, our focus was on practicing the short and long vowels of our fourth phonic book. MashaAllah the SK1 are doing a wonderful job in distinguishing between these vowels. Way to go SK1.

SK1 students learned a song about the short and long vowels. Please ask your child about it!!

We also finished our Vowel Sound Book.

In addition, I started the DRA2 Word Analysis Assessment.  DRA2 stands for developmental reading assessment. The purpose of this assessment is to divide the Sk1 students based on their basic reading abilities and their knowledge of the alphabet sounds to different groups for the guided reading program inshaAllah. 

Useful websites to help the students practice reading:
