Assalamu alaikum Dear Parents

Please help your child at home, by practicing and reviewing the above surahs.

Islamic Studies:  please help your child learn the At-Tashahud.  I asked all the students to at least learn the first sentence. (At-Tahiyatu lil-lahi wassalawatu wat-taiyibatu. All the compliments, prayers and good things are due to Allah.)  We are learning the meaning as well.  I want to make sure they know what they are reciting and just repeating words.  I went over the meaning with them today.

Art: Come by our class to see your little sprouts made!

Chocolate sale

Students will be able to buy chocolate tomorrow for $2.50 a box.

My ChalkboardI was absent today as I have bronchitis.
Insha Allah I will be back tomorrow.

Most of the students did not take their math book home but for those who did students were to cover page 126 & 127.

Islamic Studies:  practice the tashahud with your child.

Spelling:  the students were given random spelling test words not the words I had assign.  I will look at the test results and all students will have a chance to do the test again tomorrow using the words they had studied.
I apologise for that but I'm not sure why the teacher chose to give different words.

Have a wonderful night and give my salam to your child for me I missed them.
