Multiple Intelligence in Grade 4

Each student learns the subject matter in a variety of different ways, thus several activities were done to engage grade 4 students in a lesson about 'The Water Cycle ’’ to multiply the chances of successfully understanding and retaining the information.
 Students were classified into 5 categories: Linguistic, Spatial, Musical, Logical-Mathematical, and Kinesthetic. Every group did a different activity:
- Linguistic students enjoyed transforming the lesson to a story.        
-Spatial students enjoyed drawing posters of the water cycle.            
-Musical students enjoyed listening to songs about the water cycle. -Logical- Mathematical students calculated the duration of the water cycle.
-Kinesthetic students enjoyed making simple experiments to check the stages of the water cycle.

Grade 6 first Online Home Assignment

Grade 6 Students were thrilled to know that they will do their first online home Math assignment. I used a web 2.0 tool “Zoomerang and Survey Monkey” to create the online assignment. The benefit of such online assignments is that I can quickly analyze in what areas students are successful and in what areas they have demonstrated learning gaps by using the online graphing analysis. Performing such assignments will help me save around 15 minutes per class. Therefore, I will have more time in class to help students improve and to work on higher level skills. Both my students and I can see the students’ progress over time as they see the online scores. Dear Parents, To compete what your child and help him solve his home assignment

We are Young Scientists!

Science allows students to explore their world and discover new things. It is also an active subject, containing hands-on activities and experiments. Learning by doing allows children to become personally invested in their own learning process. Once a new concept has been taught, the time came for students to demonstrate it through hands-on activities and experiment. Here are some science activities that were done with my young clovers: Grade 3 students acted as scientists where they discovered all tools used in the science lab. They also learned strategies they must follow in the lab to keep themselves safe. Grade 4 students modeled the food chain using clay and wool. They also detected the suitable conditions to save food from decay. Moreover, grade 5 students planted different types of seeds. They took care of them on daily basis in order to sprout. They also used Bromothymol blue to check the suitable conditions for plants to make photosynthesis. Furthermore, grade 6 students modeled atoms, molecules, and compounds using playing dough.

Using The Mouse Mischief

Grade 2 students were interested to use the Mouse Mischief for the first time in their science class ,after they finished the animals groups lesson they actively responded to the multiple choice questions by using their own mouse to click the correct answers on the screen.

Multiplication Online Test

Grade three students explored multiplication this week , they began by modeling the multiplication problems using counters to form equal groups then they used the square tiles to form an array. Finally , they got the chance to do an online assessment by completing an online quiz where they answered the multiplication problems individually after that they checked their own scores.

Introducing our Prophet’s Life Mathematically

Grade 6 students were surprised when they knew that they’ll learn about our prophet Mohammad's (PBUH) life in Math sessions.
The aim of this activity was to use all Math lessons learned so far (exponents, algebraic expressions, divisibility,decimal operations, and prime factorization) to trace all the events that happened in our prophet’s life in a mathematical way. Students concluded that Math isn't just a subject that we learn at school, it also enters in most of our daily life's aspects.
Students were excited to know about Prophet Mohammad’s life in another perspective.
