Smart kids ask questions.
-Marie Washington

I teach science to kindergarten. I was talking about meat-eaters and plant eaters in a pond habitat, right around valentines day. My favourite valentine was from one of my kindy kids, where he wrote "Dear Ms. Dale, How do you know dragonfly is a meat-eater? I thought plant-eater. Love Chris". I laughed so hard and was proud. He used his valentine to question my science facts... now there's a smart kid. I was delighted... and then we talked about how they eat mosquitoes.

Hi Amber:)


Fantastic and thought provoking quote.

Recently I read an advertisement by a mobile company---WHY DO THE DONE, DO THE NEW. I wonder this advertisement is there in NY also.

If you ask me I would say this quote is applicable to not only kids but very much to adults also.

All great achievements and inventions started with questions like why, how, who, where, whom, when etc.

When we question a method, a habit, a practice whether at home or office we always find better and more efficient and effective ways of doing things.

A questioning mind is open to learning,knowledge and wisdom.

This short quote is very thought provoking.

Have a wonderful day Amber:)

Very true - How can you learn if you don't ask.
Funny thing though is most parents teach their kids to talk and then tell them to sshhh/shut up when they do ask questions..go figure!
