أمرح ...أتعلّم... أتغذى... ضمن النّشاطات الهادفة والدّاعمة لّلمنهج المدرسيّ كانت لنا وقفة ضمن محور الغذاء حيث رفع تلامذة الصف الأوّل شعارهم (العقل السليم في الجسم السليم) فقد أعدّ التلامذة وجبة صحيّة تضمّنت خبز القمح الكامل بالاضافة للّجبنة، والزيتون، واللّبنة. بالاضافة الى مكملات الوصفة كالخيار والجزر، للّزينة فقد صمّم الّتلامذة صحونهم على شكل قطّة لطيفة . فراقبوا معنا فنون التّلامذة في أعداد وجبتهم الّلذيذة ورغبتهم في تذوق ما اعدوه فألف صحة.

Math is Fun!!!

We have been working on multiplication for some time now. Grade 3 students invited their parents to share with them a variety of activities on multiplication. First, we had a game called "treasure land" and then we had a race of 3 serious. Parents observed their children playing and working with other children and they got ideas for games and activities to do at home. Many students felt special when their parents take part in the classroom experience. They see their parents in a different role. Educating children is a shared responsibility between parents and teachers. When parents participate in their child's learning experience, everyone wins.

Math is the BEST!

As the scholastic year moves on,students feel tired and less motivated.But pupils of KSPS reversed this equation and showed how much they are excited to learn. Here are some ideas I used with grade 5 students in the 2nd term to motivate them to study Math. 1-Every month I select 4 students as my helping hands during math sessions. At the end of each month,every helping hand will take a certificate as an appreciation for his help. 2- We celebrated the World Math Day “Love Math to Live Longer”. 3- We bought real life situations to class as in illustrating the concept of fractions with a cake. 4-Students formed circles, centers,radii,and diameters with their bodies. 5-Students watched an interactive powerpoint about fractions. 6- I invited some parents to attend an interactive Math session with their kids where they worked in groups together. 7-Students filled a questionnaire to check their opinion if they love math and what they like to change in math sessions.

Story Videotelling

video

"I only know one thing about the technologies that await us in the future: We will find ways to tell stories with them. " Storytelling has been with us since we started to communicate with each other and retelling is one of the skills for better reading and our favorite. After we've read "Click, Cliack, Moo...Cows That Type" story several times to identify and internalize the most important points of the text, we used graphic organizer to prepare the retelling...
We hope you enjoy the video of our retelling.

وحدة دعم للاطفال المرضى في عيد الطفل

عن أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه أنّ رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم قال:" حق المسلم على المسلم خمس: رد السلام، وعيادة المريض، واتباع الجنائز، وإجابة الدعوة، وتشميت العاطس" رواه البخاري ومسلم وابو داود وابن ماجة. هذا حديث رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يأمرنا بعيادة المريض وها نحن نقول له سمعاً وطاعة يا رسول، فمن ضمن مادة التربية الإسلامية قام تلاميذنا بعدد من الأنشطة اللاصفية بهدف جمع القيمة المالية لوحدة دعم لمرضى سرطان الاطفال، ثم قاموا بصحبة المربية رندة العنزاوي بزيارة ميدانية لمستشفى المقاصد وتفقدوا الأطفال المرضى وقدموا لهم في يومهم يوم الطفل وحدة الدعم وهدايا أُخرى ليُدخلوا السرور الى قلوبهم. نسأل الله العظيم أن يخفف عنهم ويشفيهم ، "اللهم إنا نسألك العفو والعافية في الدنيا والآخرة ، اللهم إنا نسألك العفو والعافية في ديننا ودنيانا وأهلنا ومالنا." ونتمنى على محبي عمل الخير أن يسارعوا اليه، بأن بقدموا وحدات الدعم المالية لتكاليف العلاج، ليدخلوا البهجة والأمل إلى قلوب الأطفال المرضى. قال الله تعالى :( من عمل صالحاً من ذكر أو أنثى وهو مؤمن فلنحيينه حياة طيبة ) شكر خاص الى كل من ساهم بإنجاح هذا العمل

Children's Day At The Arab Cultural Club

video "Today is Our Day... Let's have fun today... It's Children's Day" What a Child Day would be without a celebration? Kids love reading and they love celebrities. That's why we arranged a reading session with a famous Lebanese actor, Mr. Wissam Sabbagh. Our kids enjoyed his story telling and played games with Miss. Nermine Khansa, a very active member at The Arab Cultural Club. We deeply thank them for the warm hospitality. They made Children's Day a very special day as they opened their hearts to our kids and showered them with their gifts... stories, balloons and candies.

You were my strength when I was weak

You were my voice when I couldn't speak

You were my eyes when I couldn't see

You saw the best there was in me

Lifted me up when I couldn't reach

You gave me faith cause you believed

I'm everything I am

BECAUSE YOU LOVED ME!

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY

Special Thank You to Miss Maya Katerji

Nursery & KG1 Art Fair

Art is a major area of a child’s life where he can be himself, explore experiment, make decisions, and evaluate outcomes, all within the realm of creativity and independent thought. Art is as natural as sunshine and vital as nourishment. We mustn’t ignore it. If children use their imagination, they have great ones and put their minds to work in a very constructive way and bring a lot of good things to learning new skills. On mother's day, parents took a look at their children's art work and were amazed by their children's creativity.

Family Online Safety

Do you that around 3 billion people use the internet daily?!! Nowadays using the internet becomes very valuable and rich because it provides us with powerful means for connection, business, and communication, it also brings that world into our homes and our families. Thus, staying safe online means using the tools that can help you to control who and what comes in your computer, and to exercise your own good judgment about the people you choose to trust. For this reason a conference was held at AL- Jazaeri building on Saturday March 20th 2010 in the presence of Mr. Amine Daouk, Ms. Adla Shatila, Mrs. Ghina Al Badawi, and some Makassed teachers. The presenters were Mr. Nour Aldeen Khouy and Mr. Ihab Shidyak from Think Community/ Microsoft.

Our Toy Project

"TOY DAY"...We brought our favorite toys into school. We named and described our toys and then we classified them into different categories. "TOYS AND GAMES FROM THE PAST"...What were our parents' and grandparents' toys like? How are our toys and games different from those in the past? and why are there differences? We asked our grandparents to bring a toy they may have from their childhood to share with us and we were so happy to welcome Mrs. Jamal, Mrs. Sumaya and Mrs. Najah. They told us their toy stories and how they used to make their own toys and create their own games. It was really a joy to have them in our class and we wish they could visit us again! "TOY SAFETY"... We've visited a couple of toy stores and learnt how to read labels and look for age ranges and safety warnings to make playtime a safe and joyful experience. Selecting the right toy is fun and rewarding!
Finally, we drew toys we wish they really existed...
