Building Habits with Pumpkins

Posted by on Nov 2, 2021 in Blog | 0 comments

In the fall, students in all grades work on two important habits: the habit of attention (fixing their minds and bodies on the matter at hand) and the habit of thinking (comparing things, understanding cause and effect, and participating in thoughtful conversation).

As I have shared previously, I’ve been learning much about the word bloom. The final definition that I would like to share with you comes from the world of photography.

As a child, some of my most distinct memories are those that involved my hands. I remember learning how to sew clothes for dolls with my mother, wrap presents for my loved ones, and plant a garden with my father. I discovered my love of creating pottery and thought it was amazing that my hands were able to create something that someone else could use.  As I’ve grown older, I have come into a greater appreciation of the gift God has given us as His “handiwork” in His creation of our hands.
