We are currently finishing off our 2nd week of the Unit of Inquiry titled "How We Express Ourselves". Students are really engaged in the content being taught from poetry and spoken word in Grade 4 to Japanese culture in Grade 5/6 to Fables & Folktale writing in Grade 2 and even the language of advertising in Grade 3.
The inquiry in the homeroom class is also connected to their Quran, Islamic Studies, and Arabic courses. For example, students in Level 1 Arabic (Gr 4-6) are studying Arabic poetry while their counterparts in Level 2 Arabic (Gr 4-6) will be exploring Japanese culture and writing about it in Arabic. In Quran, Grades 3 - 6 are currently memorizing and studying the tafseer of Surat Al-Hujurat, Surat Mariam, and Surat Al-Rahman. They are exploring concepts related to the homeroom subjects. For example, how poetry was used by both the companions and the disbelievers to spread messages about the Prophet and Islam, how Allah (swt) paints a beautiful canvas of all His blessings in Surat Al-Rahman using descriptive language, how rhyme scheme affects the way Surat Mariam is recited, and how in Surat Al-Hujurat Allah (swt) explains the importance of diversity and knowing one another. All these trans-disciplinary links show our students how our world is connected both physically and spiritually.
To learn more about what your child is learning, please be sure to read the teacher's UOI newsletters and/or visit ManageBac for detailed descriptions of our daily classroom activities.
