Science Project                           
(due Jan 6-10)

Assalam Alaikom Dear Students/Parents.

Our unit for Science this term is "Body Works" where we will be looking closely at how our bodies function. We will study the five major systems: digestive, circulatory, respiratory, nervous, and musculoskeletal systems. In an attempt to understand these systems closely, I have assigned this project for the winter break. Students are required to choose one the systems and represent it in an interesting creative way using different kinds of materials varying from simple cardboard and markers to play-dough, clay, wires, wood, light bulbs, cloth,... to name just a few. The options are endless and the limit is your imagination. So dear students, surprise me!! 

Enjoy your winter break and the lovely snow.

So far we are working on our daily vocabulary, using it in sentences, questions and answers. Al Hamdulillah, students are gaining more confidence in speaking French in class.
We are working on our first story “ Un jour Bizarre” and we are working on reading comprehension and writing activities related to the story.
  •          We did “Choisis le bon mot”, .Les mots en ordre”, « Les phrases coupées ».This latest was an in class formative evaluation.
  •         We are working on “Les questions totales” and "Vrai / Faux"
  •         We will start "Les questions partielles”

·         On Wednesday ,December 11,  we are having the 3rd French test : spelling, Les questions totales,  les mots en ordre.
·         The spelling list for Wednesday is:
1.       bon, bonne
2.       correct(e), corrige,  une faute
3.       Les vêtements, l’hiver 
4.       Un pantaloon d'hiver
5.       Un manteau d'hiver
6.       Les bottes d'hiver
7.       Une tuque, une écharpe
8.       Des gants, des mitaines
9.       Je mets mes vêtements d’hiver pour jouer dans la neige avec mes amis/amies.
  •        « Les questions totales » and « Les mots en ordre » are related to the story and students are familiar with both activities as we are working on them each period.

Jazakum Allah Kheiran for your cooperation and your support.

Assalamu Alaikum Dear Parents,

In French we have read the story we are working on and we did the first written reading comprehension " Choisis le bon mot".

The next writing activities are " Je mets les mots en ordre" ( I put the words in the correct order) and " Les questions totales"  (total questions where the answer is in the question). Through these 2 activities, students learn progressively how to write correct sentences in French. 

To introduce these 2 activities, we are working on the sentence structure and its components.

This  Monday, November 4th, 2013, students will have the second test in French Insha'a Allah.

The test has 3 components: dictation (students have the vocabulary since Monday, October 28th), Choisis le bon mot (activity was done in class and is related to the story), vocabulary (questions related to daily vocabulary drilled in class).

Welcome 2013-2014


 Dear Students and Parents/Guardians,

Assalamu Alayikom Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

I hope you’ve had a prosperous summer, Ramadan and Eid. My name is Dina Zaazaa and I will be your child’s homeroom teacher for the 2013-2014 school year. I will be teaching Math, Language Arts, Science, Social Studies, Islamic Studies, Art, and Health/Gym. I want to extend to you and your child my warmest welcome into my classroom. Although this will be my first year working at Abraar School, I do have more than ten years of teaching experience and I have no doubt that my work with the Abraar community will enrich this experience even more.
