Another busy and exciting week for everyone this week. Yahya enjoyed a shadow day at his new HS program for next year and got to experience what a typical day in high school would be like. He also met the junior varsity football team and began conditioning and skill training with them. Between spending time at his new school and football practice, he completed one of the last major projects before graduation which was a science experiment. He experimented with the boiling time for hard boiled eggs. It was a tasty experiment.
The last two days he has been on an overnight field trip to Washington DC with his classmates visiting an US congressman and touring museums, maashaa allah.
As for the other boy, Isa, the highlight of his week was feeding the goats during his out and about class. This was a first for him.
The girls were very busy as well this week. Siddiqah had to decorate a hat for a hat parade at school.
Hannah created some beautiful clay flowers.
She was also asked to bake a shoofly pie for her reading class last night. We have never made or heard of this pie before. The main ingredient was molasses.
The project was based on a book that the class is reading called Joey Pigza Swallowed a Key. All of the books Hannah and Jamilah have read this year for this class have been based on children who have disabilities. This one was about a boy who has ADHD. Another book that they read was called Wonder which was about a boy with facial deformities. This book was #1 in the New York Best Seller list. It was also the book chosen for Yahya’s school’s winter school wide read. Do check it out.
