Teachers have established a strong presence on social media site Pinterest, which allows users to virtually “pin” photos to categorized boards. Whether you seek book suggestions, anchor charts, or literacy centers, Pinterest contains a wealth of instructional ideas. Since the beginning of the school year is prime time to get “pinspired,” I've listed a few of my favorite pinners and boards:
“Classroom Organization” by Melissa Alonzo-Dillard shares tips for creating systems to label and organize paperwork, supplies, and classroom spaces.
“Library Spaces for Kids” by Andrea Knight makes me want to curl up in one of these beautiful spots with a treasured book.
“Bulletin Boards and Charts” by Miss Kindergarten shows visually appealing ideas for displaying student work.
“Alphabet” by Maria Manore (Kinder-Craze) has creative ideas to promote alphabet knowledge, including letter names, shapes, and sounds.
“Literacy” by Nicole Rios includes resources for reading comprehension, book lists, and anchor charts.
“Science” by Jennifer Findley compiles creative and engaging science experiments, projects, activities.
We have our own page here at Scholastic too.
