French Updates

In class we have almost completed "Questions Partielles". We will soon begin our creative writing unit and practicing our oral communication with our play.

Masha Allah, many students have completed all the worksheets in our unit so far. However, some students have chosen not to complete their daily French work. As result, they will be required to stay in a recess time in order to catch up until all of their work is complete.

Arabic Speakers Update: Tr. Amal

أولياء الأمور الكرام

الشعر الرمزي أو (الشعر القصصي ) سيشغل حيزا في منهجنا لهذا الفصل الدراسي ، ليكون رديفا للنثر القصصي. نحن الآن ندرس نصا لأمير الشعراء (أحمد شوقي)

بعنوان (النملة والمقطم)  وهو نص قصصي رمزي ، وسوف يقوم التلاميذ بتحويل النص إلى أقصوصة رمزية  يتوافر فيها جميع العناصر الفنية لبناء القصة  ، وتتطرق إلى الأخلاقيات

والمثل العليا بأسلوب شيق وممتع بعيدا عن  أسلوب الأمر والنهي المباشر الجاف،  وتناسب مستوى أحبائنا الصغار ، تحكى لهم قبل النوم  وسوف نطلق عليها (حكايات جدتي).

وسوف يكون موعد التسليم - إن شاء الله- يوم الأربعاء الموافق 19 ديسمبر.

كيف سيتم التقويم؟   الغلاف الذي يجلب الانتباه  2-  العناصر الفنية للقصة (الزمان - المكان - الشخصيات .........)  3- سرد الأحداث وتسلسلها تسلسلا منطقيا 4- الرسومات المناسبة

للأحداث   5-  دقة وسلامة التعبير إملائيا .
