Curiosity and Imagination

I shared in a blog post a week ago that I was given the best opportunity a grandmother could ever have. My daughter and son-in-law asked if I could home-school my youngest grandson for the rest of the year before he goes to Kindergarten in the Fall of 2023. My heart is whole!

He would identify with the second learning quote. He said to me as we were working, “I love using my imagination to create.” He loves building things with his hands, and he is a big storyteller. I love his imagination. My hope is, he will continue to have a growth mindset, utilize his imagination and creativity to discover his potentials in making a difference in the world.

Did you know that early in life, Albert Einstein was not considered very intelligent? He continued to grow and became one of the most outstanding scientific thought scholars known. I often think about what my former teachers would think about some of the students they taught and what they have accomplished in their lives. Did they see them succeed? Did any of the performances surprise them?

Can you recall the learning journey you followed and are still following? As you grew up as a child, what are the things, people, places, or ideas that would spark you into wanting to learn?

When working as an educator with students, staff, and families, it is vital to know one approach will not work. Every child is different, families have different cultures and expectations, and the staff approach teaching and learning with diverse backgrounds and specialized talents is rich when shared.

Looking forward to taking time to check on different posts within different groups as they discuss the remaining school year. Looking to see how they are working to keep student engagement, building on curiosity and imagination as the school year ends. The important part of education is helping to fire up the brain to learn with curiosity, innovation and not by filling it with information. Teaching students to think, not what to think. Helping students learn to explore outside and around to find their purpose, opportunities, interests, and more learning.
