Assalamu Allaykum parents & Students!
Grade 5 Language:
Lots of work on The Cay Reader which we have completed reading now. We will continue with comprehension and new vocabulary words.
We’ve also worked on Communication Skills with a focus on irregular verbs.
More LA Grammar practice and Noble Brother vocabulary as well.
We are writing letters to participate in a Canadian Mail Race which encourages students to send letters to each other across Canada.
Finally, we completed listening to each other’s speeches and received coaching on how to delivery strong, convincing ones!
Grade 5 Islamic Studies
We’ve wrapped our unit on Prophet Salih (allahyi al Salam)
Grade 5 Art
We will continue with our Greek artwork. We will need a lot of newspapers/ paper flyers for paper mache this Friday. Please send along with your son/ daughter on Friday.
Grade 6 Language
We continue with EQAO preparations, by reviewing our questions and learning how to “beef” up our answers with strong evidence from text, as well as our ideas.
We were fortunate to receive a surprise visit from a two-time Martial Arts World champion originally from Iraq which provided a perfect opportunity to practice asking questions and we are now going to write a news article based on his visit. Perfect timing!
Underground to Canada reader is ongoing with comprehension exercises and vocabulary. Noble Brother vocabulary has also been assigned in order to enlarge the students’ language toolbox.
We also completed our speeches and learned a lot about fantastic subjects that are timely and relevant to all of us! Great work to one and all.
Grade 5 & Grade 6 Social Studies will resume next week, as speech competitions took up much time.
