Our first ever mom’s day lesson was a simple one and one that actually took less than 15 minutes. We had a class of 3 students and it was a self-learning lesson in how to read a book. Our teacher was an older lady who had a high school education herself and was able to teach us something about reading.
We all learned that the book was called “The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe.” Apparently it is a children’s book about a lion called Ro, a witch named Susan, a little girl named Janey, and a little boy named Edmund. The main character is named Edmund and the book is about what these three children do in their lives.
Our teacher went on and on about how Ro, Susan, and Janey are all characters in the story, and how they each have different ways of doing things. Most of the other kids were doing all the talking or reading aloud or writing things on their fingers. She wanted us to see that the book was about three different people at different stages in their lives.
I was a big fan of the book and thought the teacher was doing a great job, but I also think that reading aloud or writing things on your fingers is a terrible way to teach something. I think what the teacher did was a great idea and I hope that we can learn from it.
The idea of saying something to someone in school is not the same as showing them. In her book, the author describes how a parent, a teacher, and a parent-of-a-friend all interact with each other in different ways. The book is about the ways that people can work together toward a common goal, but she points out that it’s not just about them but about the people they are working with.
Mother’s day? I think I’ve heard a few variations of it. My parents were pretty much the same, except that my mom was always so strict, I wasn’t allowed to do much with my friends when we were teenagers. I used to have a lot of trouble with my mom because she told me to put up my bedroom curtains or else. I didn’t really understand it and I was just sort of not doing it.
I think its also about the people you are working with. It may not be the case. My parents worked as a team on almost every project we started including my room designs, my piano music, and most of life. They also went through the trouble of having to pay for everything everyone else paid for. I think in their case, it would probably just be about the fact that the work they did was for them, and the people they were working with.
I found this to be true in my experience. My parents would come home from work and my mom would say, “I just want to thank you,” and my dad would say, “I love you.” This is a good reminder to realize that we’ve all been there for each other. It’s just that we’re all different and it might not always be a good thing.
I’ve been on a mission to get my mom to buy me some new shoes. For a while I was going to wait until I was 12, but I decided to play it on the side. I guess I will make it for her this year.
My mom is already starting to feel the love of Christmas at work. She has to go to work in a new town and I think she wants to get her new house in order.
