Class Updates

Assalamu Alaikum,

I hope you are all doing well.

Here are some updates:

Math: We have been working on our second unit in Math, NUMERATION. We will be working with numbers from 0 to 1000. The students have been representing and describing numbers such as 894 in a variety of ways and situations. Relationships among numbers and among digits in numbers have been and will be emphasized as students rename, round, compare and order numbers, explore number patterns and develop number sense.
 Your child will also work with money amounts up to $10 and work with bills up to $100.

So far students have represented numbers in a variety of ways (ten frames, tally marks, standard form, expanded form, base ten blocks...etc).

Today we started learning how to round numbers to the nearest hundreds and tens.

Reading: We have been working on different reading strategies from our CAFE MENU while reading to self, and I have been working with some students to reinforce some of these strategies. So far we are focusing on: Back up and Reread, Predict and Confirm, Visualize, Ask Questions while Reading and Infer

Insha'Allah we will be working on more reading strategies, and once we are done DRA, I will be sending home a letter with your child, so you can assist your child on using the strategy he/she needs to work on  while reading.

We have been also identifying the story elements and the moral when reading our fables.

Writing: We have been working on staying on topic, having a topic sentence and writing compound sentences.

Science: We have been exploring soil layers, uses of soil, what soil is made of and how people and animals benefit from soil. It has been a lot of fun exploring soil and we can't wait till our workshop this Friday where we will get to explore even more!

Social Studies: We are learning about PIONEERS. Why pioneers left their homes, how we think they felt, what their lives were like, and how their lives were different from our lives today.

Islamic Studies: We are learning lessons from the story of Prophet Ibrahim, and how Iman made him brave. We also learned that cleanliness is from the Iman, and how to keep our bodies and our surroundings clean.


  • Please make sure you are checking ClassDojo for updates, pictures, your child's points and reminders.

Assalamu Alaikum,

Dear Parents,

I hope you are all doing well.

Here are some updates:

Students will be writing the list words in their agendas isA.

Reading: We learned that story elements are the pieces or parts that make the story, and that every piece is important to complete the story.

Students looked at pictures of the fable "The Lion and the Mouse"and put them in order. After which we watched the video, and discussed the moral of the story. IsA we will be reading the story as a class to identify the different story elements as we retell the story.

IsA we will be reading more fables in the coming period.

Today we introduced Read to Self  and we reviewed the I Chart. Students modeled the wrong way to read to self followed by the proper way. IsA we will be working on different reading strategies when reading. Today I introduced how to BACK UP AND REREAD.

Science: We will be learning about soil and its different layers. We discussed how to stay safe when exploring soil.

We went to the school playground today and investigated soil. Students each made their own mind map showing their findings.

Social Studies: We will be learning about PIONEERS. We discussed who they are, and students completed an activity in pairs where they had to list ten things they would take if they had to leave to another country. 

Islamic Studies: We are learning about Prophet Ibrahim and the components of Hajj.

Art: Students did a wonderful job designing their book boxes by making patterns, drawing their reading world and pasting pictures and words.
