This study aimed at identifying the degree of practicing active learning components by elementary teachers in the city of Kuwait from the educational supervisors' and principals' point of view. The researchers developed a (64) item questionnaire to achieve the study objectives. The study sample consisted of (45) principals and (60) educational supervisors who have been selected from the city of Kuwait. Means, standard deviations, t-Test and One Way ANOVA have been used to analyze data. The results showed that the practicing degree of active learning components were intermediate, and there were no statistically significant differences at the level (0.05 ≥ α) in practicing degree of active learning components by elementary teachers, due to the sex, and experience of the supervisor. Also, there were statistically significant differences in practicing degree of elementary teachers for active learning components, due to the academic qualification of the supervisor, in favor of B.A. holders, and there were no statistically significant differences in practicing degree of elementary teachers for active learning components, due to the sex, academic qualification and experience of the principals. Training educational supervisors and school principals on using active learning components was the most important recommendation of the study.
