Directions: Find or create an image that captures what you are most passionate for kids to learn about.
3 Simple Meme Rules:
• Post a picture from a source like Flickr Creative Commons or make/take your own that captures what you are most passionate about for kids to learn…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.
Tag. Your turn—what are you passionate about sharing with the kids you teach.

The Branches of Knowledge are Ever Growing

I got this picture from Flickr and felt it showed that I'm passionate for kids to learn about things that they want to learn about in addition to what we have to teach them. There is so much out there to learn and like a tree, our knowledge branches out into different directions, which is okay. Our knowledge is not a tree that has one stalk that goes straight up. This picture also made me think that we need to need to nurture our students learning just like we would a tree or it will die. They need encouragement and care just like a tree needs sun and water.

Wow! Thanks for the tag. I have an idea for my picture. It may take me a while to see if I am tech savvy enough to do this.
