رأس السنة الهجرية

من أسرة خليل شهاب وأطفال عثمان ذي النورين نقول لكم كل عام هجري وأنتم بألف خير

It’s Me, Myself, and I!

My name is Mohammad Itani, I’m in KG1 class. I want to share with you a very creative activity that we did in class yesterday. I laid down on a white card board and my friend Iman traced my outline. Then I drew my eyes, nose, mouth, ears, hair… After that my teacher and I cut the outline and made another one. We stapled the two outlines together and stuffed them with newspapers. I dressed my life size cutout with my uniform. I really enjoyed seeing my cutout in my own clothes. Mohammad

طرائق حديثة في تعليم التربية الدينية تحمل مدرستنا الطابع الاسلامي كونها واحدة من مدارس جمعية المقاصد الخيرية الاسلامية ونحن نعتبر أن العلوم الدينية تحتل مساحة مهمة من المعارف التي تحتاجها استقامة الحياة الاسلامية أهدافنا من التربية الاسلامية هي أن تجعل المتعلم قادراً على أن:
ينمي قدرته على تلاوة القرآن الكريم تلاوة صحيحة.
يُلم بأحكام التجويد واتقانها.
يرغب في حفظ ما تيسر له من سور القرآن الكريم لما يعطيه ذلك من خير كثير. يؤمن بالله تعالى و يتخلق بالأخلاق الإسلامية.
يُنمي روح الكفاح والمثابرة. يتمسك بالحق ويُقاوم الشر. يكون قادراً على الفهم والتحليل. أسلوب تدريس المادة: أن التدريس هو فنّ أيصال المعلومة للمتعلم والنجاح فيه وإن كان يقوم على امتلاك قدر معين من المعلومات الا ان الجانب المهاري فيه ذو أهمية بالغة. وحتى نتمكن من تحقيق الأهداف وإيصال المعلومات والحصول على نتائج مرضية قمنا بتطوير طرق تدريس المادة فأدخلنا عليها التكنولوجيا الحديثة وذلك باستخدام الحاسوب والقصص السمعية البصرية وجعلناها وسيلة من وسائل الايضاح وخاصة في مرحلة الحلقة الاولى حيث معرفة المتعلم في هذه المرحلة معرفة حسية. أما في مرحلة الحلقة الثانية فنحن نعمل على اكساب المتعلم مهارة الملاحظة والاستنتاج والتحليل ومساعدته على تحديد هدفه وإثارة الفضول لديه واعانته على الوضوح الفكري ليتمكن من معرفة واجباته الشرعية والأحكام الدينية والالتزام بما أمرنا الله تعالى به وننتهي عما نهانا عنه. كما أن هذه العلوم تساعد المتعلم على تحديد المحرمات واجتنابها والإقدام على فعل الخيرات والحسنات لينال رضى الله تعالى فإن شعارنا الاسلام العظيم ونهجنا القرآن الكريم ونحن سائرون على خطى الرسول الكريم صلى الله عليه وسلم.

Adha mubarak with a smile from our nursery students


Our mission as educators is not limited to developing a child's academic skills only, but it also in-cludes working on his/ her emotional, physical, and social aspects. One of our main concerns is to succeed in shaping responsible individuals who have a sense of compassion with others in their community. For that reason, we launched a mini- project aimed at raising donations in order to buy new clothes for under- privileged children. Any small donation was welcome, or even ap-propriate clothes that were not needed anymore. The response that we got was overwhelming. All the donations, whether money or clothes, were gathered. The clothes were divided according to age level. The money was used to buy new clothes items. We were able to buy 14 new clothes items. All the clothes were put in colorful plastic bags with labels written on them" A Gift from Khalil Shehab School; Happy Adha." Saturday morning was the time to distribute these clothes. Some of our students accompa-nied by two teachers visited these children, spent some time with them, and gave them new clothes to celebrate Adha Feast. Thank you for all your donations, and for helping us in putting a smile on the face of 18 orphans. You really made a difference in the lives of these children.

Conflict Resolution Project As a follow up to our extensive workshops that were done at our school last year in which our teachers were introduced to a variety of techniques aimed at creating a healthy classroom environment and good management skills, we will be carrying out the practical part of this project this year. Every month, we will focus on a special issue through different activities. The first issue is self- esteem, which will be the theme of January. Other subjects will include positive thinking, self- confidence, respect, trustworthiness...etc... The objectives that we aspire to meet are: - develop students' behavioral, communicative, and social skills - encourage negotiation as a way to resolve conflicts peacefully - teach students to accept those who are different around them and help them fit in - promote self -confidence, positive thinking , cooperation, and sharing.
Professional Development One of our teachers' aims at Khalil Shehab School is professional development. That's why we are always willing to take part in any workshop, session, or seminar that would help us fulfill that aim and take our teaching to a higher level. We are constantly attending workshops focusing on what is regarded as a new theory, approach or technique that we could use effectively in our classrooms. Our teachers have attended a number of workshops from the beginning of the school year till now. Recent workshops that were attended in November: Mrs. Rawya Shatila, Miss Sabah Wazzan, and Miss Samar Al Masri attended a workshop at Haigazian University on November 8th titled: Computers: Interactive Search Engine Tools for Teaching. Teachers use documents, scholars, books, notebooks, blogs, page creators, groups, calendars, maps, news, advanced searches, dictionaries, and translators to gain educational benefits. This workshop all the above was demonstrated and practiced through the use of the internet. Miss Huda Shaaban also attended a workshop at Haigazian University titled: الطريقة الإستقرائيّة في تعليم اللغة العربيّة Upcoming Important Seminar: On December 5th, Miss Huda Shaaban, Miss Joncet Jarkass, Mrs. Zainab Makki, Mrs. Randa Enzawi, and Miss Rola Morad are going to attend an important seminar organized by Early Childhood Care and Development Program at Crown Plaza Hotel. They will be introduced to the latest ECD international trends and updates, and also to ARC ECCD Program updates. Then they will attend a workshop on Teaching Arabic Language to Children with Learning Disabilities where an effective and updated program that teaches Arabic phonics (reading and spelling) to learning disabled and dyslexic students using multisensory phonics approach will be presented.

Dooby ; Dooby

They listened to different songs and had lots of fun.

Independence Day

Our students celebrated Independence Day . They did different activities related to this event. They colored flags, made crown flags and sang patriotic songs… Most important of all they expressed their love to our beloved country Lebanon ,each in his own way …Happy Independence Day.

I am The One and Only Me!

My name is Ihab I am unique .I am the one and only me. I am happiest when I am with my cousin I adore P.S.P when I play with it. I am dear, dashing and dressy. I am saddest when I get a bad grade. I am OH SO SCARED when I watch scary movies I am most excited when the school finishes. I am as smart as a horse I run and NEVER EVER will I again Cross the street while running. I am brought to anger when my brother hit me I am a sun, I am giving heat to people and I shine early morning I dream of my dad I desire to talk to my dad always. I always play basketball without being asked. My eyes see a world of sea full of shades of blue. With my hands I will plant trees I'm only 10 years old and I long to become a singer. My name is Ihab! I am unique and I am the one and only me! BY Ihab Itani 4th Grade

حُلمُ الأجيال


الرقم 7 لعب دورا مهما في محطات حياتي، فانا من مواليد 7-7-1997 و 7 أب يوم تخرجي من الجامعة و نيسان يوم حصلت على درجة الدكتوراه في التربية و 7 آذار يوم تم تعييني وزيرا للتربية لأكون اصغر الوزراء سنا.

ككل البلاد هناك معارضة وموالاة. انأ لا انتمي إلى أي جهة منهم فالسياسة لا أحبها. عائلتي عملت في التربية والتعليم والدي كان مديرا لإحدى المدارس الرسمية والدتي معلمة في مدارس المقاصد, خالي مدير في معهد مهني. أيضا عمي مفتش عام في وزارة التربية.

المعارك السياسية بين المعارضة والموالاة أتابعها فقط من خلال نشرات الأخبار. قبل يومين على اجتماع مجلس الوزراء فاجأني احد الوزراء بزيارة إلى منزلي، رحبت به، ابتدأ حديثنا عن البيان الوزاري وطريقة تنفيذه للوصول إلى الأهداف المنشودة وكان كل ذلك طبيعيا، لكن الذي فاق تصوري وأدهشني هو طلبه بان أصوت ضد مشروع إنشاء مصانع لإعادة تصنيع النفايات المقدم من الموالاة. وشرح لي كيف أن كلفة هذا المشروع باهظة بسبب شراء هذه المصانع عبر وسطاء وليس من الدولة المصنعة مباشرة، كما أن عمولة تنفيذ هذا المشروع تصل إلى ملايين الدولارات، تذهب إلى جيوبهم الخاصة.

وأضاف صاحبنا أن المعارضة لديها نفس المشروع ولكن بتكلفة اقل بنسبة 50 % وطلب مني إن أصوت لصالح مشروع المعارضة لان صوتي مهم جدا في إرجاح كفه على كفه وصعقت عندما أكد لي إن مكافأتي محفوظة.

يوم اجتماع مجلس الوزراء طرح مشروع الموالاة، لم أصوت عليه طالبا بيانات مفصلة عن تكلفة المشروع عندئذ لم يقر المشروع لأنه لم ينل الأصوات المطلوبة.

جاء مشروع المعارضة فاتخذت نفس الموقف طالبا تفسيرات وبيانات، لم يقر مشروع المعارضة.

جاء دوري لأطرح خطة عملي، فسردتها كالتالي:

أولا: المناهج التعليمية.

1- توحيد المناهج الدراسية و جعل التعليم مجاني بهدف الوصول إلى مستوى تعليمي واحد لكل أبناء الوطن.

2- تطوير هذه المناهج بحيث تواكب التطور العلمي والأبحاث المستمرة من الدول المتقدمة.

3- التعلم عن بعد لجميع المراحل الدراسية وذلك يشمل توصيل الانترنت إلى جميع المدارس وتامين أجهزة كومبيوتر حديثة.

4- إلغاء الكتاب المدرسي مع إمكانية الحفاظ على كتب اللغة العربية والأجنبية.

5- اعتماد نظام الفصول بدل السنة الدراسية الكاملة، بحيث يدخل الطالب إلى الجامعة في سن مبكرة.

6- إلغاء كتابي التاريخ والجغرافيا والاستعاضة عنهم بزيارات ميدانية منظمة للتعرف بصورة مباشرة على المواقع الأثرية والتميز بين المناطق الجغرافية.

7- تخصيص قناة تلفزيونية لمادة التربية موجهة لكل أفراد العائلة.

8- الاهتمام الخاص بالطلاب المتفوقين (النوابغ) بحيث تخصص لهم صفوف ومناهج متقدمة بالمواد التي يبرعون فيها.

9- إلزامية مادة الفنون المسرحية والخط العربي

10- تخصيص يوم كامل لمادة الرياضة البدنية بدل ساعة في الأسبوع وتطوير النوادي المدرسية لكافة النشاطات اللامنهجية لكل الفنون لما لها من أهمية في إبراز مواهب الطالب.

ثانيا: الكادر التعليمي:

1- تعليم المادة من قبل أستاذ متخصص

2- إعطاء الأستاذ الحق المادي والمعنوي

ثالثا: البناء المدرسي:

1- بناء المدارس في كل المناطق وخاصة في الريف

2- تجهيزات كاملة للمدرسة تتضمن (كافيتيريا- مسبح- ملاعب رياضية- تدفئة وتبريد- شاشات داخل الصفوف- مسرح قاعة موسيقية- زراعة ارض الملعب- تربية بعض الحيوانات والطيور).

3- لكل طالب مقعد وطاولة وجهاز كومبيوتر مستقل.

4- تعديل الدوام الدراسي بحيث يصبح من الساعة التاسعة صباحا حتى الثانية ظهرا مع فترة استراحة واحده لمدة نصف ساعة، والهدف من ذلك حضور الطالب إلى المدرسة بكامل قواه الذهنية والجسدية.

5- الزامية إنشاء المختبرات للمواد العلمية وتحديثها بشكل مستمر يتلاءم مع التطورات التكنولوجية والاكتشافات العلمية

6- إلغاء الزى المدرسي

7- إلغاء التراتبية في الصفوف

8- إلغاء الامتحانات كوسيلة للتقييم واعتماد أسلوب المشاريع.

9- عدم إعطاء وظائف يومية إلى المنزل.

10- عدم إقفال المدرسة ليتسنى للطلاب الحضور إليها للاستفادة من المكتبة والملاعب والمسرح... الخ الخ

وبعد هذا الطرح المسهب لخطة عملي جاء دور التصويت فكانت الصدمة الكبرى، صوتان اثنان فقط، رئيس الحكومة وأنا شخصيا.

لو كان انتقام المعارضة والموالاة لي لما حزنت ولكنه انتقام من أجيال الوطن.

تقدمت باستقالتي فورا وتوجهت إلى الوزراء الكرام بكلمة مقتضبة قائلا:" لن تنجح اى حكومة عندما نغلب لمصالح الشخصية على مصلحة الوطن والمواطن، ما تقدمت به هو لصالح أولادكم وأولاد المواطنين الذين أوصلوكم لهذه المراكز"

فدوى صوت رئيس الحكومة بحدة، "استقالتك مرفوضة، توجهك صحيح سأعيد التصويت على خطة عملك مرة ثانية أملا من الوزراء الزملاء العودة إلى ضمائرهم.."

فنال ذلك المشروع الموافقة بالإجماع.......

شكرت الله وحمدته وتضرعت إليه قائلا:

رب احمي لبنان واحم أجياله واهدي سياسينا إلى الطريق الصحيح...

التعلم النشط

إن طرق التعلم النشط من أهم الإستراتيجيات التعليمية التي نعتمدها في مدرستنا، والتي تشرك المتعلمين في عمل أشياء تحثهم على التفكيرفيما يعملون . لا ريب في أن التلميذ في التعلم النشط هو محور العملية التربوية أما المعلم فهو المرشد والمسهل للتعلم. وقد أثبتت الأبحاث منذ عدة سنوات أن الطفل يتعلم بطريقة أسرع ، أسهل، وأمتع من خلال التجربة، الملاحظة، الإستنتاج إلى جانب إختبار واكتشاف الأشياء بنفسه دون إغفال أمر اللعب. من هنا تكمن اهتماماتنا في المدرسة في اختيار نشاطات صفيّة ولاصفيّة مختلفة تنمّي قدرات الطفل الفكرية، الجسدية، اللغوية، الفنية والإجتماعية. ولا بدّ من أجل تحقيق تلك الأهداف من أن نأخذ بعين الإعتبار إهتمامات الطفل ورغباته، إحتياجاته، وملاءمة بيئته، أضف إلى ذلك أنواع الذكاءات المتعددة ...

وعملاً بشعارنا " تنمية العقل والشخصية"، نتبع طرق ونشاطات تعليمية وترفيهية مختلفة تعزز الثقة بالنفس ومن تلك الأنشطة الدراما، لعب الأدوار وتمثيلها ، ونشاطات حسية حركية، ، زيارات ميدانية بالإضافة إلى تعريف الطفل على حضارات ، عادات وتقاليد بلدان أخرى من خلال توأمة المدرسة في هذا العام مدرسة كولدين في سكوتلندا.

ولا شكّ أن إعتماد التعلم التعاوني (أي العمل ضمن مجموعات) يساعد الطفل في إفساح المجال له للتعبير عن نفسه ومشاركة رفاقه أفكاره الأمر الذي يطلق العنان امواهبه ومخيلته. ولن ننسى دمج التكنولوجيا في التعليم كوسيلة تجعل الأطفال يتجاوزون صعوبة الكتابة اليدوية الأمر الذي يتيح أمامهم إمكانية التعبير بسرعة

Innovative Approaches to teaching

Teaching young learners requires much effort and attention, yet it’s very interesting. The teacher should always provide her children with a nurturing and supportive environment, taking into consideration her children’s characteristics, abilities, multiple intelligences and needs. Many approaches can be taken in the classroom. Every teacher should know what interest her children or what is preferable to them. She can use their total physical response (TPR), the affective approach, the communicative approach, or any other approach that fits best the student. ” Maria Jose Lobo gives a very comprehensive explanation of the characteristics of young learners. She writes that young learners are: very receptive-curious-motivated-able to pick up new sounds accurately-spontaneous and willing to participate-learn by doing-physically active-interested on themselves and on what is “here now”-deeply involved in the world of fantasy and imagination. Based on the characteristics of YL, and as Carol Read suggests, the activities and materials should be interesting, motivating, relevant and practical. At Othman Thinnourain/ Khalil Shehab School, we always try to make sure that the activities are compatible with our students’ abilities in order to keep them motivated and attentive (games, gestures, role play, dramatic play, puppets show, puzzles, blocks, rhymes & songs, arts like gluing, cutting, coloring, painting , storytelling ...). We are also aware of the importance of variety in activities because young learners can’t concentrate for a long time. In addition to cooperative and group work. Children learn from each other as much as they learn from the teacher and sometimes more. Cooperative learning such as jigsaw II and STAD should be a part of a teacher’s lesson. Teachers must vary the classroom interaction (Teacher-class / Teacher-student / student-student / Group-Group). Moreover, the child actively tries to make sense of the world (Donaldson, 1978), that’s why we worked on bringing together teachers and students from different countries and enabling them to share their learning, culture , language and experiences with the aid of ICT and exchange visit. In addition to the link projects that: Encouraged respect for people from other cultures, developed cultural literacy about other cultures as well as our students’ own culture, expanded students’ knowledge about the target language as well as their native language and furthered the notion that our students are ambassadors of Lebanese culture when interacting with people from other countries. We at Othman Thinnourain / Khalil Shehab School, are integrating technology in teaching, our teachers attended different ICT workshops, prepared power point presentations , word activity sheets, videos, TV, internet researches…. related to the themes.

Discipline & Citizenship

Dear Parents, In times like this, one of the most important traits we can teach our children and our students is good citizenship.We have to build character.This isn't something we can pass over like family treasures or be brought-up into such as habits.Instead, this is something children should learn little by little and not overnight.It must be an ongoing process until they reach maturity.Disciplining children to follow rules ,respect others ,and value cooperation lays the foundation for good citizenship..Don't be overwhelmed with the word discipline.In contrast to the old traditional mentality , it was always coupled with punishment. However, nowadays discipline means helping children develop self control, finding alternative solutions to problems, knowing their limits and correcting misbehavior.Simultoneously, it is encourging children, guiding them, and helping them feel good about themselves.Such learning will only occur when family and school join their efforts to build character for the future generation...and for Lebanon Mrs. Dina Diab

حل النزاع

ست خطوات في حلّ النزاعات

نضع نفسنا بين الأطفال وننزل إلى مستواهم
يجب أن يكون صوتنا هادئاً ولمستنا لطيفة

" تبدو مستاءً فعلاً"
ذا لزم الأمر ، نضع حداً بشكل إيجابي
" من الضروري أن يتوقف التدافع"، ونمسك الغرض المتنازع عليه

نسأل : " ما المشكلة " ؟
أو نصف المشكلة كما نراها ، ونطلب جواباً : "نعم" أم "لا

نستنتج : " إذن ، المشكلة هي... ؟ "

" كيف يمكن أن نحل هذه المشكلة؟ "
نشجع الأطفال على التفكير في حلول

" لقد وجدتَ الحلّ بنفسك "
