This week in 1D
Thanks to your contributions to the class funds this year, and the organization of our class parent, we had a fun pizza lunch on P-day today. We followed this up with some paper plane construction, which was also a great way to have some fun together at this time of year. If you are interested, the website we used for instructions was http://www.foldnfly.com The other fun addition to our class this week has been practicing and performing our Readers' Theatre scripts. The videos are taking a long time to upload, but there are a few photos to give you an idea in this week's photo folder.
Have a lovely weekend!

The homework sheet given out last week will be the final one for this year. Remember that RAZ-Kids, MyON and IXL are all online resources that will always be available, so your family can find its own balance between summer fun as a family, home reading of books and making use of these online resources to help with maintaining skills learnt this year.
The Ramadan hours for students are 9:00am-2:30pm as per previous emails and the announcement in Sahifa. More information to follow when Ramadan is called.

The Summer Reading Program's theme this year is Dragon Dreams and Daring Deeds. Students who read 30 picture books or 6 chapter books during the summer, write them down, get them signed by a parent, and return the paper to the school in August will receive a free book from the library. (Students may also do a combination of types of books - 5 picture books = 1 chapter book). There is a Summer Record sheet attached as well.
If you have any questions, please ask the friendly librarians.
