Assalamu alaykum. Al-Hijra Academy will be holding Storytelling Week for all students in JK to Grade 3. The storytelling will be held in-class only.
Please help your child(ren) find a short, Islamic story to tell. We encourage you to have the students write out the story themselves to practice their writing skills—about 2 pages, double-spaced—otherwise, it can be typed out, but please make sure it is no longer than about a page, double-spaced in an easy to read font size to submit to the teacher.
Have the students practice the story well, using intonation, and displaying confidence while storytelling. Students should get to know their stories well enough to tell out loud in front of their classmates and teachers comfortably, without holding their papers.
Remember, this is not a competition, but rather it is to identify each student’s strength in public speaking and retelling a story.
The activity will be held on the week of November 20-23 , 2017.
