MEME Passion Quilt


I was recently tagged by Bill Ferriter to participate in the Meme Passion Quilt. I had a hard time deciding and thought of adding 4 or 8 pictures but picked just this one from years ago in my classroom.

This image shows what I love about teaching this age kids. I love the manner in which they are able to move from imagination to reality in a seamless fashion. I love how playing music, pretending, and learning become one in the classroom. If you could have heard his rhythm you might understand. To this little boy those Marx brothers glasses gave him super rhythmic powers. It was also the first time he had expressed real pride in some thing he had done. He was so proud of himself and I was so proud of him.

I will tag my five:

I hereby tag the following for the Passion Quilt Meme:

Ellen Berg
Susan Graham
Jose Vilson
Dayle Timmons
Cindi Rigsbee

Passion Quilt Meme Rules:
1. Think about what you are passionate about teaching your students.
2. Post a picture from a source like FlickrCC or Flickr Creative Commons or make/take your own that captures what YOU are most passionate about for kids to learn about…and give your picture a short title.
3. Title your blog post “Meme: Passion Quilt” and link back to this blog entry.
4. Include links to 5 folks in your professional learning network or whom you follow on Twitter/Pownce.

John,

This is a great quote....and one that I think shows what is missing from education beyond third grade!

Creativity and imagination are the hallmarks of some of the world's most successful people--and they are traits we embrace in young children and then scorn as our kids get older.

It's actually sad to think about this student in five years when he sits in my room taking multiple choice practice tests. I wonder if he'll be as inspired by creation as he looks in this picture.

Rock on,
Bill

You have a good one, though. This is the cutest picture I've seen yet.
