Grades 1/2

Welcome to the Abu Huraira Center Academy Grade 1/2 class page!

A Message from Sr. Fahima

We follow the Ontario curriculum and of course the first goal is to make sure the students are at the correct level for their age group. My goal isn’t to run through all the lessons just to finish the curriculum, but I make sure we don’t move on until everyone is comfortable with the topic at hand. Whether that takes 2 weeks or 2 months, I strive to ensure that the students do as well as they can. While I don’t like making the students take tests, we will be doing them at the end of each unit to ensure the students are comfortable with what was taught.

Some people may ask how we teach a Grade 1 and Grade 2 group at the same time, and luckily, the lessons for grade 1 and 2 students are very similar. Because of this, I am able to coordinate the lessons to make sure they are geared to both grades, while also making sure not to hold the Grade 2 students behind or push the Grade 1 students too hard. I find a common ground and try to stick with it. However, if I have a Grade 1 student who may be ahead of their classmates, I don’t shy away from giving them harder work. Also, if there is a Grade 2 student who may be behind, I make sure I spend more time with that student.

Besides academics, we also want to put effort into behaviour. Each week, I name an Ace of the Week and that is the student who has shown the best behaviour in the class. That person has shown perseverance, kindness, initiative and respect to their teachers and classmates. The winner is rewarded with being the classroom helper and they are also given many tasks to do that they enjoy. With this incentive, I have seen most of the students show a great improvement at school.
