Awesome ideas! I'm new to this "pinning." Can you explain it to me? Thanks! bdonley@chsd.us

Go to Pinterest.com and request and invite. You can use my email address as your invite (april.larremore@gpisd.org). Once you are accepted, log on and create the boards you want, add the "pin it" icon to your toolbar, and start pinning. It's super easy!!

I just went to the website and requested an invite and got one in about 30 minutes! But now I dont really know what to do!? ha!

I LOVE all the things that others are finding...where do you even start looking!! Can you look at "other's pages" is it sorted that way!! I think I need "Pinterest 101" ha!

Thanks for sharing all your finds!! They are awesome!!

Did you install the "pin it" plugin to your browser? You need to do that first. When I installed mine, there were instructions to help me. Then you click on boards to create the boards you want to pin to. Be specific so that its easy to go back and find your pins. For example, you might have one for literacy, one for math, one for science, etc. You can search categories and other peoples boards will come up. You can start to follow people you find and what they are pinning will come up when you log in. I hope this helps. Let me know if you have other questions.

How did you add the Pinterest blog button to your blog?? I would love to add mine to my blog, so I have all my internet school stuff all together on my blog.

Let me know :)

It is easy to add the Pinterest link to your blog. Go to "Design" on blogger. Then "add gadget". You want to add a picture. You will need to have saved the Pinterest logo or one of your boards or something like that as an image. You will upload your image and put the URL for you Pinterest page. Save it. Then it will be on your sidebar. Does this make sense? If you have any trouble, email me april.larremore@gpisd.org

Mrs. Larremore, thank you so much!!! I've added my pinterest button and I appreciate your help with this. Having all of my school internet stuff together will make this year so much easier.

Thanks :)
