I once proclaimed that Pinterest might be worth more than wasted time. Since then, we have done several projects inspired by that inspiring, time-grabbing site.
My favorite use for Pinterest, though, is making lists. Specifically, curriculum lists as we count down to first grade and Pre-K. I have a board for each school subject so that I can pin curricula, books, and activities that interest me. I try to include age range and prices. When I decide against something, I delete the pin. Since I am a bear of very little brain, this helps keep confusion at bay. I predict that making final decisions and ordering will be tons easier this way!
After rereading a post from last summer when my kindergarten books came in, I am itching to order! But for now, I will keep studying my copy of The Well Trained Mind (it is never far from my hands) and pinning.
Here are my boards:
The fun part is researching. The hard part is choosing.
I would LOVE for you to post comments on any pins or on this post about my possibilities. Have you used any of them? What about cost effectiveness? Is it convenient? Is it thought provoking? What's the fun factor?
