Life Is School

on August 29, 2012

“Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself.”   -John Dewey

Once after I sheepishly admitted to one of my friends and fellow homeschoolers, that my children and I had not had school that entire week, she laughed and said, “Life is school.”
These words have stuck with me ever since.  Life is school.  There are always learning opportunities all around us.  Anywhere.  Anytime.
It can be anything from counting with you child the number of rocks in his pocket, to asking your daughter what color each of the flowers are that you see as you take a walk through the park.
Applying these words to your daily life will also encourage a love of learning in you children.  How great is that!?!  Because they won’t feel like they are having “school” crammed down there throats.  Rather they are just hanging out with Mom and Dad.
The world around you is your classroom
and class is in!
