I recently read the quote, "Wonder is the feeling of a philosopher, and philosophy begins in wonder." On Monday, the ABC 3rd grade students will begin their four years of "adventures". I hope they will experience the "wonder" of developing thinking skills and creativity.
When I was a little girl, I enjoyed my mother's garden. Since we lived on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea, she grew lovely flowers. The leaves and petals of the flowers filled our lives with a variety of colors. I recall asking my mother why so many of the petals felt like my favorite blanket.
What do you wonder?
Pearls take time to form; likewise, our words should be chosen carefully and with thought.
