It wasn't until I started playing around with the search feature that I came across a multitude of classroom resources. The search feature allowed me to explore first grade ideas, without getting overwhelmed with everything else. I loved the ability to glimpse inside other teachers' classrooms, while building a bank of ideas. I can't wait to take the spastic pinning I did this year, to survive my first year in 1st grade, and "Rock the Socks" off of this coming year's classroom and teaching!
Throughout my use of Pinterest I have learned the following:
- make sure the pin is active BEFORE pinning it to your boards
- double check that you have "Permission to Pin" ideas that you find on blogs and websites
- organize your boards to make reviewing ideas simple
- monitor your time (Do you get sucked in like me?)
