My World

my-world

I created a picture of my world today on The Open University Create Your World.

Roughly from left to right, here’s what my picture represents:

  • Good conversations with new friends here, and also faraway friends and online connections
  • Brain research, thinking, questioning and teaching the ABCs and more to five-year-old Arab children
  • Jesus, the Tree of Life,┬ábringing shade to the world, as well as standing over the puzzle piece of my life
  • Wedding rings represent my husband and me
  • Two flowers for our two lovely daughters
  • Good books, fruit, creativity and art are some of my favorite things

Am I a Planet-protecting, probing motivator? I’d like to think so! :)

Sheri Edwards created a wonderful connected language lesson using this Inspiring Learning: My World app.

  1. I love this. I love how the center is your family and all else balances that focus. You are certainly motivating to others and yourself, probing to find answers and gifts to better the world.

    Thanks for adding another world and sharing the idea with others.

  2. Thanks, Sheri,
    It was fun to visit your class blog this morning and see what’s been going on there. I definitely miss middle school lesson plans and doing things like this with them.

    However, this was one lesson I can adapt for my Kindergarten students! Great vocabulary learning as they pick the pictures they want to add to their world. I’ll be sure to send you a link when we do it. (I’m getting an interactive whiteboard in my room this year, so I think this will be fun!)

    Blessings to you, friend,
    Denise

  3. Denise,

    I loved the my world idea! I even went and made one myself, and rightfully so, I got young at heart. I think kids would love to play around with this app! It is fun and interactive. Thanks for sharing!

  4. Hi my name is Ashley and I am a student in EDM310 at the University of South Alabama. I love that you created “your world” and showed what means the most to you and best describes you through pictures and symbols. I think I could potentially use this in my future class. I think it could be a fun project for the first week or two of classes to allow the students to make their own and share with the class. I think it would be a great “get to know you” project. I want to make my own now! Thanks for sharing I would have never known about this app without reading this post!

  5. Thank you, Ashley, for stopping by. I need to get back to writing blog posts! My connected life has changed since moving overseas. I’ll post about my kindergarten students’ worlds soon!

  6. Wow, you have completely amazed me once again. This is just what I needed to read before I made my lesson plan for my education class. I believe the students should be deep thinkers.
    Thank you so much for the great post!

    • Coley,
      Thanks so much for the uplifting note! I hope you’ll share your blog with me, so I can read all about your lesson.

      I thought it was fun choosing pictures that represented me. I’d also like to try again and choose pictures and then narrate a story about them.

      Hope your class is going well! You’re on the downhill now–more than half finished with the semester. Enjoy and finish strong!

      Take care,
      Denise
