Cycle Two students greatly enjoyed preparing letters and cards for their moms on Mother’s Day. Their creativity was shown in the drawings and cards that they created. Grade Four students were presented with letter forms. Together with their teacher, they wrote a beautiful poem. Then each one drew and colored his/ her own poem in the way he/she likes. Grade Five and Six memorized a poem titled "My Hero". Then, they designed different cards. Some made use of their good computer skills to do their cards. It was their own special way to express their affection to their mothers. Ways can vary no doubt, but one thing remains fixed. It is deep and unconditional love and care that a mother gives and the appreciation that she gets on her day although nothing can ever equal to all that she does.
It is important to share experiences and knowledge among all Makassed teachers in order to develop and grow as an organization. For that reason, Miss Natasha Frank had a plan of having the Beirut English Language coordinators give presentations or workshops on a topic of their choice. Last week, we were the first school to present. Miss Rana Lawand and Miss Sahar Chaer gave a presentation titled" Test Anxiety” at Omar Bin Al Khattab College. Miss Natasha, the other Beirut coordinators, and the English Unit at Omar together with some teachers of various Makassed schools attended the presentation. The presentation identified test anxiety as an intense type of performance anxiety. The causes of test anxiety were discussed in details. Then, the different symptoms of test anxiety were presented. The second part of the presentation was dedicated to exploring ways in which a teacher can deal with a student who suffers from test anxiety. At the end of the presentation, the participants completed a true or false questionnaire to see if they have a case of test anxiety or not. The results were quiet interesting!

Child's Day is such a special occasion to be celebrated. What makes it special is the fact that we can celebrate it in a variety of ways. This year we chose The Arab Cultural Club as our destination. At the club, we had the chance to choose stories to read, listen to a narrator telling a story with expression, and interact together though games. Our host offered us cake and juice. Then we were presented with two bags containing stories, an activity book, and colors.
Special Thanks to the Arab Cultural Club and to Asala

We attended a workshop titled " Connecting Classrooms", organized by the British Council and presented by Mr. Nigel Furness, the head of teachers at White Rock School in England. The two-day workshop was on how to implement new dimensions into the curriculum in order for our students to develop as global citizens. Mr. Nigel gave an example by showing us a video on how this is done at his school. Participants had the chance to work together and practice on how to devise lessons that serve this aim. On the second day, we had the chance to talk about our experience with the link between our school and Cauldeen Primary School in Scotland and how we were able to come up with different activities involving all subjects , thus creating a sense of respect in students' towards their culture and the culture of other countries and an awareness that there we are part of the world so it is crucial for them to be aware of its different cultures thus sharing its similarities and celebrating its differences.
