2018 校內靜思語說故事比賽

中文

推廣靜思語,讓孩子在成長的路上,不只是注重成績,更懂得做人做事的道理,聖馬刁慈濟人文學校舉辦靜思語說故事比賽, 為鼓勵孩子多讀多聽多說靜思語,深入了解靜思語意涵,多與他人分享,並將靜思語融入在日常生活中,藉由說故事比賽讓學生有機會以生動活潑的方式表達靜思語深度內涵、促進自我心靈的提昇與成長。

 

今年傳統班的小朋友,分成四個組別說故事,孩子們各自展現才華,將靜思語的主題融入其中。

有別於嚴肅演講,這場靜思語說故事比賽,小朋友們用心設計,自製道具,演講搭配手勢,對於自己上台比賽,用心、下了功夫。讓台下觀眾目不轉睛,一起走進這不一樣的靜思語世界。 情境模擬、角色扮演,利用聲線的變化說故事,台下觀眾聽得入迷。經過靜思語說故事比賽, 不管是現實生活的經驗,還是寓言。小朋友們各顯本領,有別於漫畫、書法的比賽方式,這群小朋友要用說的,「聲」入人心。 

 

傳統班的九位小朋友使出渾身解數,站在台上,用標準的中文講故事,對生長在台灣的小朋友來說,或許不是難事,但對於僑居在海外的華人孩子,可就不那麼簡單,優異表現讓評審讚賞也感動。

 

很多家長覺得很感動,因為這樣一個比賽活動,讓小孩子有機會學習,怎麼樣把故事和靜思語教育連結在一起,大家覺得非常有意義。許多家長覺得讓孩子參加這個活動,不管是增加了孩子的上台勇氣,還有參與感,更重要的是,聽了那麼多好的故事,每個故事都非常棒,不僅小孩子學到東西,家長也體會到,靜靜聆聽孩子說話,自己也成長不少。有位家長說:「透過他們這樣有聲有色的故事,會拉近人跟人之間的距離,另外,他們不管要發表什麼東西,都是需要一個講故事的能力,讓他們所要分享的東西更清楚,更吸引人。」 


學校方面,則希望我們栽培的這些孩子,將來都是世界上最好的孩子,嘴巴一開就讓世界更溫暖,嘴巴一開就讓這個世界更圓滿。期待每個孩子都可以將靜思語內化在日常生活中,提升自我品格成長。

2018 Tzu Chi School Wide Still Thought Compendium Story Telling Competition

 

Introducing still thought compendiums to children by encouraging exposure to them through reading, listening, and understanding will help the children understand the meaning of the language and incorporate them in their daily lives. Through this competition, Tzu Chi hopes to teach students that grades are not the most important part of their growth, but rather how to be a good citizen and contributor to society. The competition is made to aid students on using physical expression to grasp a deeper understanding of the still thought compendiums while fostering a growth mindset.

 

            This year the students in the traditional class were split into four different groups to tell stories. Each student displayed their ability through their showcase of aphorisms. Different from traditional speeches, the students put in a lot of hard work and effort to design props and create gestures for the competition. The audience was held star-struck in the still thought compendium world. Situational simulations, role-playing, and changes in voice projection were used to tell the story. Through this competition, whether in life experiences or fables, the children gain unique experiences that are different than those of comic and calligraphy competitions.

 

            The nine students in the traditional class stood on stage and told the story with precise use of the Chinese language. Although this may prove to be an easy feat for native Chinese speakers, to the Asian Americans, the task was a challenge. The quality of the performance moved the judges with the completion of such a challenging task.

 

            A lot of parents were moved by this competition because it gave the students a chance for learning how to combine both story-telling and still thought compendiums. Many parents who signed their children up in hopes of their children learning public speaking, more in depth knowledge, or just the feeling of competition were satisfied that their children gained valuable learning experience in the process of the competition. One parent even said that this competition will pull together the relationships between people. No matter what the children experience in life, the ability of story-telling is valuable in communication in sharing ideas and drawing engagement.

 

            From the point of view of the school, the goal of the activity was to help produce a world filled with the most educated children. The hopes of having children that are able to make positive contributions to the society while achieving high character in their daily lives would be the ideal result of introducing the competition.
