How does it work?

Easy!  Pinterest users register a free account (simple log in with facebook or twitter).  Begin by checking out what millions are already pinning, and create your own “boards” themed to pictures, images, infographics you find online or upload yourself.  Check out VolunteerSpot’s boards above and follow us!


Board ideas for your classroom:

  • Favorite Books
  • Fun with Math
  • Fun with Reading
  • Animal Websites
  • Healthy Snacks
  • Quick and Healthy Dinner Ideas
  • Local Sports & Scouts
  • Free Family Fun in our Town
  • Jump Rope Games

Work with the teacher and other common-grade room parents to make pin-boards unique to your grade and community.   Ask around and find out who is already pinning and invite them to join in as a guest.

You can even install a Pin It button to your browser’s bookmark’s bar so no matter where you’re surfing, you can pin an image you find quickly to your board(s)!

Some of our favorite boards by fun friends (perfect for the classroom) include:

Kids books via Imagination Soup

Science Fun via Imagination Soup

Printables & Worksheets via ZiggityZoom

Crafts via TeachMama

Healthy Snacks via VolunteerSpot

Our only word of warning is. . .set a timer for yourself, because we guarantee you’ll be perusing and pinning for hours without realizing it!

    My coder is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.

    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on various websites for about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform.
    I have heard good things about blogengine.net. Is there a way
    I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it? Any kind of help would be really appreciated!

    When I initially commented I appear to have clicked the -Notify me when
    new comments are added- checkbox and from now on each time a comment is
    added I get 4 emails with the exact same comment. Is there an easy
    method you are able to remove me from that service?

    Kudos!
