January’s Habit of Mind: Gathering Data Through all Senses

“Tell me, and I’ll forget. Show me, and I may remember. Involve me, and I’ll understand.”  ~Native American Proverb

This month we will be helping students learn and make informed decisions by using the sensory information they gather in their daily lives.

We know that all information gets into the brain through the sensory pathways and we know that most learning is derived through observing and experiencing. To know a game it must be played; to know a dance it must be moved; to know a goal it must be envisioned.

There are many ways that our senses form our thoughts… ask your child about our assembly today.
