Pinterest – Who are you following?

12 Feb

Hi everyone,

I am hooked on Pinterest!  I don’t even look at it unless I have more than a half hour uninterrupted (how often does that happen??).  I think it is a great place to curate (the buzz word for sites you collect other sites on) because images are so much easier to remember.  A list of links doesn’t jog the memory as well.  The simplicity doesn’t hurt either.  Make sure you have the “Pin it” button, it is so very useful.

I am following some great people.  You can see who they are by clicking on “Following” on my page.  If you are following some great World Language teachers, I would love to know who they are.  I also have an interest in pinners who pin about History and using technology in the classroom.

I haven’t checked it out much but there is a similar site to Pinterest called EdShelf.  It looks promising too.  

Here are some other links that may be helpful to you relating to Pinterest:

My Spanish classroom set up

30 Jul

My first big decision (though an easy one) was to get rid of my desk.  I NEVER sit there and the students always want to sit there.  Problem solved.  My computer will be at a table.  I can sit at that table to check papers, plan activities, etc. Now that whole corner is more space in my room!

My brother-in-law is making me a shelf where I can put all of my supplies that used to be in my desk similar to this one:

I also have several other storage ideas, mostly thanks to Pinterest:

5 Gallon buckets that are also moveable seats

One of those “mechanics” organizers

File folders duct taped together.

There are a lot more shelves, containers, and classroom ideas at my Pinterest page.  Not a ton, because I am just getting started with Pinterest.  It sure is fascinating and addicting!

As I mentioned in a previous blog, one of my bulletin boards will probably be a place for review by students.  My white board is very large, so I envision sectioning off a part of it with a border and using it for agenda type info.

This week I am at a Great Expectations workshop, then my husband and I go on vacation.  I imagine soon after that I will be spending hours a day in my classroom setting it up.

I would love to hear your ideas or see pictures of your classrooms.

Gracias, Penny
