Meme: Passion Quilt

I am terrible about memes, so this has taken me forever. It took a long time to get to it even though the idea has been there in my head all along. I spent a ridiculous amount of time searching flickr for images, before deciding that I have photos that work perfectly for me.

Megan and Woody both tagged me for this.

Passion Quilt Meme Rules:
  • Think about what you are passionate about teaching your students.
  • 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.
  • Title your blog post “Meme: Passion Quilt” and link back to this blog entry.
  • Include links to 5 folks in your professional learning network or whom you follow on Twitter/Pownce
Exposing children to new experiences encourages their learning.

Exposing students to new experiences engages them.

Whether those new experiences happen in the classroom, on field trips, online, or with their families doesn't matter. What is important is that they are gaining knowledge and becoming more engaged and excited about learning.

These two pictures are my daughter, playing with rocks by the Pacific Ocean and playing with a safe in a hotel room. Two experiences that excited her beyond our expectations.

I'm tagging (if they haven't yet been tagged & have the time):
(I know that's six, but I couldn't help it!)
