Technology & Social Sharing | 2012
Pinterest is a wonderful new social sharing site that is perfect for room moms and dads alike! Think vision boards meets ideas and innovation. If you are tired of the same ol’ craft, snack, and class party ideas, head on over and discover an array of new, unique inspiration for your classroom!
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:
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!
