THE BEST TIPS TO INSPIRE STUDENT MINDS

This past weekend I read the  Bam Radio 10 Education Ideas tweet filled with education related inspirational platitudes offering no methods, ideas, suggested teaching techniques. Sure children can be compared to snowflakes, each uniquely different, but unlike snowflakes children have minds, minds that welcome inspiration, creativity and love. And to inspire those minds teachers themselves must be inspired. Those that are open to new ideas and welcome challenges, new adventures, “novel” explorations are the ones who best inspire our children. I encourage teachers to never stop learning, creating and exploring and to share those goals with their students with more than words but with actions. Each week I hope to share a 5-10 minute warmup to help open minds to new adventures in learning.

This week I suggest reading a short poem aloud and encourage students to illustrate their thoughts through words or pictures. Join me by sharing your ideas with me and my readers. Those little “snowflakes” are ours together to help grow into a blizzard of inspiring thoughts and creative ideas and actions.
