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!

Toledo day 2 and more

We have had a busy week this week with playschool, swimming, and everything else. Our last day in Toledo was pretty packed with things we wanted to do. We woke up after a great night's sleep in air conditioning and realized that none of the breakfast places opened until 10. So we watched a show in spanish on our television then checked out of the hotel and got churros con chocolate. They weren't as good as the ones we had in Sevilla but the breakfast was the cheapest out there and very filling (plus the chocolate was good). Then, we visited Santo Tome which had a famous El Greco piece and we weren't allowed to take a picture so we got a postcard and meandered our way around the hoards of people. Then we went to the Santa Cruz museum which had many El Greco pieces and we got to take pictures. (Rick Steves was wrong about the cost but the museum was great and easy to understand.)

After this short visit (because they were changing out exhibits) we headed to the cheesy tourist train which took us around the whole city. It was pretty warm out (102) and sunny but we managed not to swelter and got someone to take our picture which we posted on facebook.We also admired the view. After a refreshing frozen yogurt and slushie combo we had lunch then caught our train back to Madrid then to Sevilla. In Madrid we were delayed for quite some time but eventually we made it back.

 This week we taught our first lessons (together an hour long) about words and vocabulary to our 5-6-7 year olds. We think they learned the vocabulary and the activity and song was entertaining. We'll see what next week has in store.
***Tomorrow we go to Ronda and then to Malaga.
