News from the French Class

Friday,April 24, 2015
Assalamu Alaikum Dear Parents
Here is the news from the French class:
Our daily routine is drilling the vocabulary related to our daily activities (opposites, gender, and numbers). We are talking about activities at school or at home. Al Hamdulillah, students are improving in expressing their basic needs in French and talking in French while working with a partner during French class.
We are still working on our story “Chat Angora ” and we have also started  Les questions partielles as a creative activity . We are working on/reviewing some grammar concepts like double verbs construction, contraction and verbs for singular pronouns. 
In mid May, Insha’a Allah we will have the French café. To prepare students for this event we have started also working on the vocabulary related to French Café setting.
·         Tuesday, April 28, we are having the 5th French test: spelling, Les questions totales, les mots en ordre and verb conjugation for singular pronouns.

·         The spelling list for Tuesday is:

1.       Je veux manger un biscuit.
2.       Je prends un jus de pomme.                                                                     
3.    Combien ça coȗte?                                          
4.    Est-ce que ma commande est prête?                          
5.    Je prends un gâteau au fromage.
6.    Je prends un sandwich au poulet.      
·         Les questions totales  and Les mots en ordre are related to the  story. We already  did these 2 activities and corrected them in class.

Jazakum Allah Kheiran for your cooperation and your support.

Updates - Math Test and Project

Assalamu Alaikom Dear Parents and Students.

Tomorrow, Friday inshaAllah, we will be concluding Chapter 10  (Dividing Decimals) and we will have our Chapter Test this coming Tuesday, April 21st. Please review Lessons: 2, 3, 4, and 7. 
On this test, I will also include a few questions from Chapter 5 (Measuring Length and Time) as students did not do well on the test for this chapter. So, this is a chance for them to improve their mark inshaAllah. Please review the test itself and/or Lessons: 1, 4, 5, 7, 8, and circumference of circle (from notebook).

We're well on our way with the new unit "Force Factor" and we covered some of the major concepts: forces, structures, and machines. Today, the students had loads of fun trying to design a structure that supports their Math textbook using only a single sheet of paper and 30 cm of tape! Ask them how they did it!
Thank you to the parents who sent in some simple machines to school, but we still need more: screw driver, pliers, small toy car, egg beater, toy with a pulley, etc... We will send them back home at the end of the unit.

Project (New Product) 
The due date has been postponed to next Friday, April 24th. The students are allowed to take their boxes home for the weekend, but have to be careful not to crush it in their bags!!
To sum up:
The students were asked to design an edible new product that enhances one of the body functions, ex: stronger bones, smarter brain, bigger muscles, or even whiter teeth.

Assalamu Alaikom Dear Parents.

This week, we worked on estimating quotients, dividing by 10, and calculating a decimal quotient.
Next week inshaAllah, we will continue with chapter 10 and work on dividing decimals by whole numbers, and problem solving.

Alhamdu lillah, we have concluded the unit on Body Works and the students are completing their final touches on their projects "New Product" which they should submit by the end of next week. 
We will be starting the unit on "Forces Acting on Structures" inshaAllah next week. Please send to school any simple machines you can spare around the house (can opener, hammer, toy car, peeler, etc.). We promise to send them back home by the end of this unit!

Jazakumullahu khairan for your cooperation.
