I haven’t yet mastered the world of social media. There’s Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram…and the list goes on and on. It’s really hard keeping up with my teenagers, but boy am I trying. I have a Twitter and a Facebook account. I like Facebook, but I use it mostly to check in with friends every once in awhile. I hate to admit it, but I haven’t yet mustered enough courage to send a tweet—maybe some day. I do, however, feel like I have a handle on Pinterest. In fact, I’m really proud of my Pinterest boards. I am truly addicted to Pinterest. Here’s a little peek at my Pinterest boards.
I use Pinterest to organize all my free and for purchase activities as well as organize all my blog posts (thanks so much to Laura Chandler for this idea). So, if you want to peruse and download Make, Take & Teach free items, be sure to follow the first board. The archive of all my blog posts is the second board. I have organized the reading-related boards by the 5 key areas of reading instruction.
The holiday boards are just plain fun and are a work in progress. I love searching for really cool classroom holiday activities.
If you are a teacher you’ll want to be sure to follow Charity Preston’s collaborative boards–Kindergarten Klub, First Grade Faculty and Second Grade Squad. Many popular educator-bloggers contribute to these blogs. Charity has boards for every grade level all the way up to high school. If you are a kindergarten teacher (or even preschool or first grade) for 100% sure you’ll want to follow the brand new collaborative board, KinderLand Collaborative. This board has tons and tons of fabulous ideas and activities for early elementary. Feeling a little artsy? My blogging friend Debbie Clement from Rainbows Within Reach has her children’s art collaborative board.
So if you are just a beginner pinner or have been pinning for awhile, you’re welcome to check out my boards—- Make, Take and Teach on Pinterest!
