About Our School+

Here are some stories about our school in Bahrain, where children learn both Arabic and English from pre-kindergarten through grade 12. (Note: a few children forgot the topic, so we have a few additional topics included in these books.) :)

We Went to Adhari Park

We took a trip to Adhari Park, an amusement park in Bahrain. It was lots of fun. We rode many rides and had chicken nuggets, fries and juice for lunch. Here are our stories about our trip.

Kindergarteners each wrote a page about some aspect of Bahrain. Some made patriotic pictures, others wrote about things they enjoy doing here, and others taught something about life in Bahrain.

We hope you enjoy reading their pages. Click on the links to see their work.

Bahrain on Google Maps

Our school is a K-12 private school in Manama. Children learn in both Arabic and English. The students are all bilingual. They go to Arabic and English teachers. Some of the teachers, like me, are not bilingual.

Here is a great list about where to go in Bahrain and some of the many activities you can do here. Here are some pictures of Bahrain too:

100 Days of School

We had fun counting to 100 many times on the 100th day of school. Students brought in 100 treats and other interesting objects.

Some of the smaller items.

Here are 100 Oreos, each marked with a number 1-100.

P1060247

We counted 100 steps in the hallway and made it to Grade 1A’s class.

We danced the Macarena as we counted to 100.

Do you celebrate the 100th day of school?

Kindergarten Students Write About Their Zoo Trip

Look what the precious KG2 students have drawn and written! Last week they took a trip to the wildlife park.

I love their artwork. They really made some lovely animals.

They all wrote words too. Some wrote words they copied from the board. Some had the teacher write the words they chose. Some used inventive spelling to write their own sentences. Great work!

How Much Does it Cost?

I recently returned from a trip to Bahrain. I took a picture at the gas station where we bought gas.

I thought you might be interested in finding out how the price of gas compares to the price where you live. You’ll have to do some research and math to figure it out.

Here are some facts that will help you:

  • BD stands for Bahraini Dinar, which is the currency in Bahrain.
  • The picture below shows the cost for one tank of gas: 5.095 BD for exactly 50.960 liters.

Please let me know if you take my challenge!
