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!

Pelo Mono and more

Today was our third day of Playschool. We are really getting to know the children and enjoy seeing them improve their English while having a lot of fun. Today we had a water fight with them (It is 100 degrees Farenheit here so it made for ideal conditions), made hacky sacks, worked on vocabulary, and added drawings to their Curious George books. Next week we will be teaching one thirty minute lesson each about the United States which should be exciting.

Yesterday night we went to our fourth concert ever (yes we have only been to three and one was for the Inauguration of president Obama). It was for the band Pelo Mono- Monkey hair- (probably not famous in the US and the jury is out if it is in Spain). We were invited by T's intercambio and met two of his friends and they snuck us in as University of Sevilla students for a cheaper price (without talking we can pass for Spanish jaja). It was rock surf music. We didn't know what that meant but discovered that the band didn't sing and it was instrumental rock. We are still unsure if this genre exists in the United States. They were good and we got to see a lot of the culture which was in it of itself entertaining. We uploaded a video and hope that it works!
