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!

 In addition we played Jump and Read at circle time. Please ask your child about this game :)


We finished our second book of the 2D shapes. 
Next: We will start our 3D shapes unit.

We finished one last book for Healthy snacks. We started a new unit on how to take care of our planets. We learned about the three R'S: Reuse, Reduce and Recycle. We watched some educational videos which discuss this topic.

We integrated art, science  and math together. We reviewed the primary and secondary colours and we painted 2D shapes using the primary colours. Please check out our bulletin board. MashaAllah the SK1 managed to draw some beautiful buildings using the 2D shapes. Good job Sk1.

Islamic Studies:
