5 creative ways to share your passions (with classroom ideas, too!) — from classtechtips.com by Dr. Monica Burns

Excerpt:

If we’re anything alike, there are topics you just can’t stop talking about. I am definitely guilty of being “that” person who talks about the latest piece of advice they heard on a podcast or a recipe from TikTok that they can’t wait to try out. You might also find me going on and on about how fun it was to visit a new school, a new lesson idea I want to try out, or an EdTech tool that totally changed the way I think about [fill in the blank]. In today’s blog post, I put together a list of five creative ways to share your passions. You’ll also find creative classroom ideas to go along with each one.

Some of these are part of my regular practice of sharing things I’m passionate about. Others I’ve tried a few times and loved, even if they’re not my daily, weekly, or monthly way of sharing.

Best of all… all of these ideas are ones your students can try, too.

From DSC:
The above items make me exclaim, “Glory to God in the highest!” He’s an amazing, detail-oriented designer and artist! I’m grateful that He gave us the ability to be creative as well — thank you LORD for making us in your image. Genesis 1:26-27

I’m going to borrow the idea of taking the world ART from the world EARTH:

Only the LORD can paint a canvas like this!

 

 
 

“Good night.”

And here’s another amazing picture:
