Welcome! Thanks for joining us on the Bright Ideas Blog Hop! Over 100 bloggers have teamed up together to bring you some of the best and brightest ideas that we use in our very own classrooms!
My idea uses something that is near and dear to all of us...Pinterest! I use Pinterest all the time to help me develop my lesson plans. Here are some examples.
The way our curriculum is written is a tad confusing to read. I re-typed the key concepts into a table, using one page per trimester strand. Then, I scoured Pinterest for anchor charts, multimedia activities and products that would help bring those strands to life. I placed the pictures of each idea (I'm a very visual person) into my table so that I would have a quick reference for myself. I know that each picture that I place in the table is on my Pinterest page, so I can easily access the link if I need it.
I then took it a step farther and have started adding these visuals to my weekly lesson plans. I use the quick visual to remind me what I am going to be teaching and then hop over to Pinterest to grab the link if I need more info.
Pinterest is such a wonderful tool for educators and it is definitely making my teaching more engaging in fun for my students!
