Teaching charcter education is as important as teaching reading,writing and math. It should be a daily part of our classroom .
This month we focused on responsibility so each one of my fourth graders handled  a classroom  job, we hanged the class helpers chart  so the students will know their job for each week , it was a great way  for the students to get  involved  in taking responsibilties and helping throughout the day.

Less Teaching; More Learning

I had the privilege to participate with Ms.Ghina Balhawan in a one day workshop at Beirut Arab University in cooperation with Cambridge University Press. Different approaches and strategies were covered. Active Learning, cooperative learning, differentiated instruction, self and peer assessment, communicative teaching, blended learning and much more. All for the aim of serving our students a better education.

Support the Best!

Election Day is very near. KSPS students are very excited to vote for one of their friends to be the president of their class. They are aware that every voice counts, thus they intend to vote for a candidate who will represent their views on most important issues. Candidates prepared amazing banners and slogans for their campaign.

Global Teenager Project

For the second year, KSPS 6th graders are taking part in an international collaborative project; Global Teenager Project. This year the project is entitled “Sustainable Development” and during this activity participating students will have the opportunity to adopt a set of global goals to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all as part of a new sustainable development agenda.
Participating schools are: Makassed Khalil Shehab School and Hajj Bahaa Eddine Hariri School from Lebanon, Argrani School and College from Bangladesh and Kirovograd Collegium from Ukraine.
During the first stage students from all schools exchanged photos and welcome notes through a wiki space.
We were very happy to meet new friends that talk different languages and have different traditions and backgrounds.

My Character Counts Notebook

      Every month KSPS students are learning a new value; so far they learned about trustworthiness, respect, and responsibility. These character lessons are helping our students to develop a safe, caring classroom community. To maintain these values along with our students all the times, I asked my 6th graders to create a note book entitled “My Character Counts”. In this notebook, students will write down everything they learned from the character building lessons, draw corresponding diagrams, and share their experiences… At the end of the scholastic year, every student will have “My Character Counts” notebook which is a valuable recourse to learn about character building and share with our community.
