Relaxing for a bit…

Okay, so I have taken a week (or so) off from blogging. After teaching at a new job this year, and finally being off for summer break, I just need some rest! But I do have a beautiful picture from a short hike my husband and I recently took. The aspens groves are so beautiful right now and everything is so green.

Will resume soon!

 

Monday Mornings: Proverbs, Quotes, and More

coinWith proverbs, there are often two sides to the coin; I imagine that is where wisdom comes in–when to apply what proverb. For example, contrast:

“Absence makes the heart grow fonder” with “Out of sight, out of mind.”

“You’re never too old to learn” with “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks.”

Teaching and discussing contrasting proverbs with your students/children can be a good way to fascilitate higher level thinking.
