Saturday 7

In Sue’s words, “Some posts have the potential to change the world. Here are 7 of them.” I am humbled that my post “How Children Really Learn” is among the seven. Thank you Sue. Please check out her blog, as she is a terrific and interesting writer. -Jennie-

I think you’ll agree that a lot of what we see on WordPress is creative, entertaining, and pretty well-written. Some of it is so heart-rendingly true we cry for the humanity we find there. Some of it is downright frivolous, and that’s exactly why we love it. The stuff that makes us think about things we don’t normally consider teaches us more about each other and ourselves.

But some posts seem to me to have the potential to change the world. Here are 7 of them:

A Teacher’s Reflections: How Children Really Learn

Fix It Mommy: Mediocrity at Its Best

The Girl from Jupiter: Connection! (aka: Unexpected Encounter on Aisle 4)

The Richness of a Simple Life: 2016 Kindness Challenge Posts

Throwing Chanclas: Just.One.Book.,   Updates and Observations,   Your Questions Answered

About Jennie

I have been teaching preschool for over thirty years. This is my passion. I believe that children have a voice, and that is the catalyst to enhance or even change the learning experience. Emergent curriculum opens young minds. It's the little things that happen in the classroom that are most important and exciting. That's what I write about. I am highlighted in the the new edition of Jim Trelease's bestselling book, "The Read-Aloud Handbook" because of my reading to children. My class has designed quilts that hang as permanent displays at both the National Liberty Museum in Philadelphia, and the Fisher House at the Boston VA Hospital.
