Inspired by Scot McLeod and his blog post My son is 8. He’s a maker.

I encourage you to follow up and make your own post.

My son is 7. He is a maker. He spends hours building elaborate worlds in Minecraft knowing they will be destroyed because we don’t  have the full version, tonight he will make another one. 4plus4

My son is 5. He is a maker. He builds cities out of trains and Hot Wheels. They block the halls and cover the furniture.

My son is 7. He is a maker. He draws pictures of children playing, Angry Birds flying, and pigs hiding.

My son is 5. He is a maker. He builds forts out of cushions. He hides under blankets and dares me to find him. He runs around the house with a blanket cape flowing behind. legos

My sons are 5 and 7. They are a makers. Will Their classes enable them or quash them? Will their teachers inspire them or suppress them? Will their schools nurture their brilliant divergence or force them into a convergent, one-size-fits-all model?

My sons are 5 and 7. They are a makers. their world-changing skills and talents never will be reflected in an educational world of worksheets, end-of-chapter review questions, course exams, and bubble tests. How will you accommodate and recognize their gifts?

My sons are 5 and 7. They are a makers. Are you ready?
