Educational Philosophy

Education is a social process. Education is growth. Education is not a preparation for life; education is life itself.

~ John Dewey

Our simple educational philosphy: we learn as we live and we celebrate what we learn!

Labor Day

We have had a busy few weeks. We are busy with Spanish, Italian, Wordly Wise, SAT Workbooks, and Algebra. We are still studying the American Revolution. We have learned some interesting things about our Founding Fathers. For example, did you know that George Washington had really bad teeth and he used a combination of animal teeth and wood teeth as replacements? Did you know that one of the Founding Fathers was a teenager? Do you know who?

We are also learning to draw people. We learned that proportions are different at different ages. For example, did you know that an average adult is 7 heads tall and an average baby's head is the same length as its legs?

We have started a project on osteoporosis that is going to take a long time! We may be asking you some questions!

In Atlanta, we visited the MLK center and we learned some interesting things about MLK. For example, did you know that he liked to play tricks on his sister? Did you know that he did not like playing the piano but his mother made him? When MLK was 6 years old, he ran across the street to play with a friend and his friend's father told him that his son could not play with him because he was black. That was probably the beginning of MLK's fight for equality.

That's it for now. We'll post again soon.
