Giving Kids Inspiration

Inspiration is a big concept for kids to comprehend. My kids just completed their final class book and wrote about who inspires them. I received responses from moms to Martin Luther King, Jr. to our principal to sharks.  All of them could justify how those people were something they aspire to be.

I stole an idea from my neighbor teacher (she's phenomenal- what I want to be when I grow up). She put pictures of famous architecture out with her block station to inspire the kids with ideas of what they could build. Of course, we encourage them to create something, but this gives them ideas to spark that creativity.

Pin It!


  1. Hi there,
    I just stumbled upon your blog and am hooked. I love your ideas and appreciate the photos. I teach 3rd, but have a little one going into K in the fall. I'm looking forward to doing some of the things you describe with him this summer. Thanks for the time you put into your blog! :) Jodi

  2. Thank you so much! Good luck to your little one in Kinder-it's such a great age!
