Welcome back from the long holiday weekend!
It was so nice to see everyone returning from the 4 day break with big smiles today!
Just to recap from last week:
Our focus for writing was life in the UAE! We brainstormed ideas about what makes the UAE special and made our own poster to take home. We continued with our super-reading powers such as partner power, reread power, pointer power and picture power. We finished writing the alphabet in our workbooks and have begun working on word families “-at” and “-it”!
We started our new unit on shapes! We reviewed what they already know about shapes and compared circles, triangles, squares, and rectangles. We are using vocabulary words such as sides and corners to make these comparisons. We have also been practicing drawing each of these shapes on our own.
There was a lot of buzz around National Day last week in our class! The kids had so many ideas and stories when it came to talking about what they love about the UAE. We sang a new song called “The Seven Emirates”, made a camel sunset picture, and made henna hands. The class had a blast outside at the activity tents and bouncy castles and it was lovely trying food made by UAE families after lunch!
Just a reminder that tomorrow is Early Release Day so please pick your child up at 1:50 if they do not ride the bus. Thank you!
