Teachers on Pinterest...Did you Know?...
HAVE YOU SEEN IT? Do you know what I'm talkin' about? It's the Teachers on Pinterest board(s)! Isn't it so excitin'? As far as I'm concerned, it's a teacher's DREAM come true! One spot for all of those fabulous pins out there that are just waitin' for you to repin and use in your classroom.
I am a pin-a-holic and find all kinds of amazin' pins that I have to immediately pin for future reference. I am a very visual person, so I love gettin' on Teachers on Pinterest boards and checkin' out all the nifty pictures and creative ideas. I can honestly say that in the past few years that I have been incorporatin' Pinterest ideas in my lesson plannin', it has provided me an opportunity to be more creative in the class and the students LOVE when I give them somethin' fresh. Pinterest allows for me to not have to spend so much time creatin' lessons on my own because chances are someone has already done the plannin' and shared it with everyone else. I love teachers!
In my Pinterest life, I've used videos to stream for lessons, found games to match a concept we were workin' on, integrated anchor charts and pictures into all subject area lessons, and gotten ideas for classroom decor...all from the different pins on Pinterest. I can walk around my school campus into hallways and classrooms and immediately tell who also adores Pinterest as much as I do...simply by lookin' at their doors and walls! I am quick to exclaim, "Hey, I saw that on Pinterest! That looks AWESOME! Do you mind if I try that in my classroom as well?"
Right here, right now, I'd like to thank each and every teacher out there that has opened up their doors and classrooms by sharin' pins with the rest of the teachers around the world. YOU ROCK!
You seriously need to go check out all of the boards. What are you waitin' for? GO NOW! You can choose to only follow the boards that are of interest to you, or Follow All like I have chosen to do. I believe the more pins the merrier! Thanks to Matt Sutton at Digital, Divide and Conquer for introducin' me to these boards. You can find me pinnin' under Literacy, Math, and Sensory Learning as Alison Rose.
