Pinterest

I just found the neatest site called Pinterest from Chrissy Johnson at Wild About Kindergarten. Chrissy was my student teacher a couple of years ago. Pinterest is an online "pinboard" where you can "pin" inspiration photos from anywhere online. It's simple: drag the "Pin It!" icon to your toolbar, browse the web, and if you come up on an incredible idea, PIN IT! It saves that photo PLUS the exact link it came from, to a board of your choosing with a specific label. Make sure you check out Chrissy's School Days Page for ways to use Pinterest and for lots of great ideas!! I just requested an invite to this page and I can't wait to try it out!!

Here are a few of the ideas that caught my eye from Chrissy's School Days Page....

We'd love to know your username to find you when you get on. Pinterest is another great way for teachers to share ideas. I've used it for personal reasons and just recently started adding boards for my school ideas. (ahawley)

Love those ideas! I tried the crayons, using the HS Home Ec ovens...first I didn't let them get hot enough...so I turned up the heat, but had to go back to class. SO I am sure you can imagine what happened to them! lol..Anyone for Crayon Soup?

Thanks for sharing this FABULOUS idea! I asked for an invite and received an email from pinterest accepting my invite but when I chose "do not" allow to post on my facebook page it took me back to login and said it did not recognize my email address etc? Did you have to click on "allow" for facebook for pinterest to work??? Help!?! I can't seem to figure this out.

Mrs. Larremore said...

Tawny,

I wish I could help you, but I am not sure. I did look at my pinterest account and I am linked up to facebook. Maybe someone else will post to help.
