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!

In our cleaning frenzy, we came across November's 30 day project. Wondering what that is? Well, starting in August, each month the girls did a project that was something they had to do every day all month. In August, they did a journal entry a day. In September, they did a photo a day. In October, they did a sketch a day (I think we may have posted some of these). In November, they did a simile a day. We took December off. In January, they have been working on a poem a day. So, here are some of the best of the girls' similes from November.

1. Your house is as clean as a hospital.
2. The sun warmed her like a blanket.
3. Reading books fills me up like a bowl of chili.
4. I was wound up like a coil.
5. The memories flipped through my mind like a slideshow.
6. The shivers moved through me like ice pricks.
7. The memories flashed through my mind like a kaleidoscope.
8. My grandma's face is like the sun on a cloudy day.
9. The tree branches stretched toward me like a mother's arms.
10. The water was as still as glass.
11. Her legs were blotchy like a leopard.
12. The television was a like a magnet.
13. When she squinted, her eyes were like peepholes.
14. Her head spun around like a twister.
15. The array of food made her drool like a bulldog.
16. She was more delicate than a flower.
17. Her lips were red like a fire engine.
18. The clock ticked like a bomb.
19. The paint spread like melting snow.
20. The assignment was as dull as a rainy day.
