Sk1 are doing an amazing job reading to their classmates. We are now in our fifth book of the guided reading. The book name is: I like Me!

We are learning to read the following sentences: Please ask your child to read for you :)

I like my smile.

I like my eyes.

I like my shape.

I like my size.

I like my hair.

I like my nose.

I like me, from head to toes!


We are learning about the 2D shapes.
We finished my 2D shapes booklet.  We are working in our second 2D shapes booklet.

Next inshaAllah we will learn about the 3D shapes.

We integrated math with Physical Education. We made some 2D shapes with our bodies at Gym time!!

Islamic Studies:
We are still learning about the five daily prayersI reread the book How to Pray?
We learned the number of rakaat in prayers.
We watched some educational videos about performing Salah.

In addition the kids are still practicing how to pray in class. Each week we choose one of the boys to be the Moazen and and another one to be the Imaam. The Kids are very excited for Friday to learn how to pray together with their classmates.
