Apr 29 Language and Islamic Studies Update

as salamu alaykum,

Here are a few of the things we are working on in the class, and looking forward to in the coming weeks.

Guest Speaker - May 4th
Field Trip to the Aviation Museum - May 6th
School-wide Speech Competition - May 7th
Tennis Workshop - May 11th
Community Day - May 13th

Language - the children have started reading the award winning novel "Ultra" by Canadian David Carroll. We will be reading through the book in school, and carrying out a few interesting activities related to the novel as we go along. This week we have been reading the first few chapters together and completing comprehension questions related to the material in the novel.

Islamic - PROJECT DUE MAY 13th I have given the students an independent task to research and study in detail one of the following Surat: Al Mulk, Al Insan, Nuh, Duha, Al Mursalat. Once the students become acquainted with the surah and its meaning/tafsir, they are meant to look into the history/significance surrounding the revelation, and create an analysis of main ideas/lessons of the Surah. The students should organize their findings to present to the class. I have left it open to the children to choose which media is most appropriate for their presentation (e.g. poster, speech, powerpoint, etc.)
