Weekend Ed. Quote ~ July 14

We do not learn from experiences. We learn from reflecting on experiences. ~paraphrase of John Dewey*

https://trainersjournal.files.wordpress.com/2013/12/we-do-not-learn-from-our-experiences-we-learn-by-reflecting-on-our-experiences.jpg

 

*”​When we reflect upon an experience instead of just having it, we inevitably distinguish between our own attitude and the objects toward which we sustain the attitude. Such reflection upon experience gives rise to a distinction of what we experience (the experienced) and the experiencing​–the how.​”​ ~Dewey, J. (1916). Democracy and Education. p. 173 as quoted by Robert C. Lagueux here

Have a Thumbtastic Day – Book Review

Such a powerful story by Steven T. Moore with engaging illustrations by Morgan Davis. Theodore Thumbs is a story about a shy young boy who must face teasing and bullies and some embarrassing occurrences when he goes to school. Each morning Theo wakes up determined to have a good day. Unfortunately, awful days occur. Unlike the much-loved book, “Alexander and the No Good, Horrible, Very Bad Day,” the events of each day result in internal hurt for Theodore. This poignant story and illustrations portray the power and result of hurtful words and bullying. Theodore Thumbs shows adults and kids how to overcome bullying in our schools, neighborhoods, and communities. This bedtime story of kindness guides us to learn to live with our thumbs held high into the sky and with a smile of great cheer like Theo. I like the theme of having “Thumbtastic days” and it is a great tie-in for students to look for evidences of Thumbtastic days in everyday life.

Theodore Thumbs is written by my friend and colleague Steven T. Moore and was published in 2016.
