“Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.”
The world, life, love and the natural environment are filled with experiences that etch their way into your mind. They reside there like an old man on his favourite park bench.
Once imprinted, they are almost impossible to erase. These experiences teach us as educators a valuable lesson of how our children learn.
To allow our children to retain knowledge we must make the learning ‘an experience’ We must take the children on a journey, one that excites the senses, the smells, the sights, and the sounds need to be ignited, but more importantly, the heart needs to be engaged.
Make them love the lesson, make them hate it, repulse them or sock them. Either way, get their heart engaged in what you’re delivering.
“Allow your children to invest both academically and emotionally and true learning will take place.”
