Random Quote Wednesday the Finale!

Well, here it is, the last “Random Quote Wednesday” post. This has been a fun way to fill in the summer. I will  be taking a break next week then starting in September I’ll go back to my “Grade School the Second Time Around” post where I share weird and wonderful tidbits I learn (or relearn) while I work with my grade schoolers. This year I will be having science and social studies with the 5th grade. They do some pretty cool stuff so I can’t wait!

Last week’s quote….

Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere!

…was actually guessed by two people. George at The Off Key of Life and Holly’s Mom at The Barking Chain both knew that the brainiac I was looking for was Albert Einstein! Way to go guys and thanks for playing!

  1. Awwww, I will miss your quotes, but look forward to the posts about school. A very close friend of mine has been a kindergarten teacher for about twenty years. I have loved hearing her stories, and helping out in her room when I could. Mostly helping her set up for the school year, or shut down at the end of the year. 🙂 Now she has taken a new path and is the Reading Director at a new elementary school. I look forward to hearing about her new challenges. I, myself, actually home schooled both of my daughters. They were in 3rd and 1st grade when I started. The older of the two went back to public school in eighth grade and remained there through graduation. The youngest did go to public school for two years in middle school, but chose to return to being home schooled through high school graduation. If I may brag on my girls, both graduated with Honors. 🙂 While, obviously different from teaching a room of 25-30 students (or more?), I do know the joys, and frustrations, of trying to find the perfect supplies and curriculum! I miss it. I miss the preparation and the time spent coming up with new, interesting ways to teach them, but………..I’m also glad they are done and on their way in life. I will never forget the first day of summer, after completing our first year of home schooling. NEVER has a cup of coffee tasted so good as that first cup of coffee on the first summer morning, when you know you don’t have to do anything or be anywhere! 🙂

    • Yes, the joys of summer break after a challenging year is the best. Kudos to you for all the years of homeschooling. I ran a daycare in my home for a while and really enjoyed coming up with different themes and projects for the children. Now I work with a really great special ed teacher in what our school calls “the resource room”. We have anywhere from 2 to 12 students that are having challenges in the regular ed classroom so they come to us for math and reading. I go to their class for social studies/science and I follow them to some of their specials like Spanish or Computers. I really love it. The kids are the best and it’s so exciting seeing them blossom and become confident learners. I can understand how you would miss this part of homeschooling.

  2. Hi Nancy! I will look forward to hearing your tidbits from teaching kids! My mom taught the 3rd grade. My sister and I used to go and help set-up her classroom when we were kids. 🙂
