Arabic Language: احب اللغة العربية
We reviewed and studied the letters ( أ –ح  ), the name of harakat (fatah, kasra , and dama) and how to read the letters studied with them; this has been accomplished though a number of activities, such as songs, games, stories and competitions. The children have found these activities to be exciting and fun. Please ask your children about them and watch as they make the sounds and the actions.

Lesson Title: The letter geem  ح  The students worked on the Arabic letter in the classroom.

I am working on teaching the SK1 students how  to read and write simple sentences.  We will allow the students to model the teacher by reading simple sentences
For the Last two weeks, the students have been excited to read for their classmates during circle time.

The title of our book is: استطيع ان شاء الله

Writing: Masha'Allah SK1 wrote the following sentence in their Arabic journals.

Last week we took number six. ستة
We are still working in the pattern unit. We did many worksheets about it. In addition and to have some hands on activities in math, we integrated this subject with art and SK1 students made beautiful bracelets! MashAllah way to go SK1!

The boys also made patterns in the twin day!

We learned some of the properties of different objects such as:hard/soft, rough/smooth, float/sink etc. We did an experiment and we tested different objects to see if they will sink or float.
Mash'Allah the SK1 did a fantastic job in their predictions! way to go SK1! Please ask your child about this experiment and allow them to redo it at home if you can :)

Islamic Studies:
We are still learning about the 5 pillars of Islam. . In addition we learned two more names about Asmaa Allahe Alhusna.
