This week in 1KP!

I hope y’all had a fabulous three day weekend! I was excited to come back and see all the students excited to learn today! ūüôā

Below is some information regarding this week:

Home LearningРThere will be no home learning this week.  Students can continue to work on the one from the previous week and turn it in as they finish it.

RamadanР The Ramadan schedule will begin after the announcement has been made.  Please see previous post about how our schedule has changed.  I will be putting another Ramadan letter in the HW folders of students that I have not received back.

Math Unit 9РWe are starting Unit 9 today.  Below is the IPP and the IXL information that goes along with this unit.  I will be sending home the Unit 8 assessment soon.

Reader’s Theater– In reading we are working on becoming characters and sounding like them. ¬†We are participating in reader’s theater as a way to support this learning. ¬†Your child has a book and a character that they may choose to practice at home. ¬†It is not required for them to memorize, as they will be reading it from the book.

1KP Ramadan Schedule

Exhibition Viewing Trip

During Grade 5, each student participates in exhibition, which is an in depth learning project for them.  Each group has had multiple action plans being shown throughout the building and in the community.  Monday, May 7th is their big showcase to show what they have been researching.  In order to support Grade 5 UAS students and allowing our class to learn about new topics, we will be attending their showcase for about 40 minutes.  The students will be exploring the different projects and participating in what the Grade 5 students have prepared for them.  Bus transportation is provided to and from Dubai Festival City Mall.

We will be going from 10:35- 11:10.  It will not interfere with snack, recess, or lunch.  In order for your student to attend this event, I will need the permission slip return by the morning of May 6th.  There is no cost for this event.

I would love to have 2-3 volunteers to go with us during this event.  We will be splitting up the class in small groups, so that the students have more engagement and individualized time with each Grade 5 group.

Please be on the look out for this permission slip and let me know if you are able to volunteer and come with us to support our Grade 5 students.

Have a great day!
