How I Use It
Pinterest is used to find ideas for your classroom. Pinterest is not a site the students would get on to explore. I use it strictly to find ideas to bring to my classroom. Pinterest will show you ideas and websites where you can find those ideas. It is a great teacher resource! The only downfall is the the county which I am employeed has pinterest blocked.
If my students could get on pinterest I would have them explore lessons they think they would like. I would choose some lessons the students have chosen and bring them to the classroom. I think simply using a lesson a child suggested would get them more interested and give them the confidence they need. Pinterest is easy to use!
