Luke joins us today to count down another day until school starts. Luke (8 years old) will be attending a new school this year and is understandably nervous but optimistic about meeting his new teacher and classmates. Luke has become quite adept on the boards since beginning his RPM journey in April 2014 and is quite eager to learn. All of us are hopeful that Luke’s new school will be open to challenging his hungry brain!
Back to School
Today we are going to talk about education!
Spell Education. EDUCATION
What do you think of when you hear the word education? SCHOOL
Tell me one thing you expect to see at schools. STUDENTS
Give me a word that tells how you feel about your new school. NERVOUS
Let’s discuss some famous quotes about education. Listen to the quote and tell me what you think it means. (click here for the complete lesson)
“You are always a student, never a master. You have to keep moving forward.”
~Conrad Hall (American cinematographer)
DONT STOP LEARNING EVEN WHEN YOU ARE OLD AND OUT OF SCHOOL
“Education is not preparation for life, education is life itself.” ~John Dewey
ONCE YOU ARE EDUCATED LIFE IS NOT THE SAME BECAUSE NOW YOU ARE REALLY PREPARED FOR ANYTHING.
Creative Writing: Write a letter to your teachers. Tell them about yourself. How do you learn best? What do you expect out of school this year? What can they expect of you?
I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO MEETING YOU SOON. MY HOPE IS THAT YOU WILL TRUST THAT I AM SMART EVEN THOUGH I MAY NOT SEEM LIKE IT FROM THE OUTSIDE. I ONLY WANT A CHANCE TO SHOW THAT I CAN LEARN.
I know that given a chance, Luke is bound to impress everyone he meets in his new school! Go Luke, we are all so proud of you! ~Elizabeth
