I must say that when I first heard of Pinterest, I was far from impressed and thought it a silly "girl" thing my wife enjoyed. BOY WAS I WRONG!
It took me a while to warm up to the idea of looking at it, but when my MALE teaching friend got all interested and had my wife show him how to use it, I decided that I may have been a little premature in my judgement! (Thanks to my wife for her patience AND for not rubbing it in OR torturing me with the 'I told you so' stuff).
So, two years ago, I had no followers, and had no clue what I was doing. Today, I have over 28,000 followers (and follow over 8,400 others) and I couldn't be more content with the idea generation that Pinterest provides. (Not to mention you can let your teacher hoarder run wild because nothing you collect takes up physical space in your house or classroom- bwa ha ha ha ...)
So, why do I share all this? Well, I have found so many inspiring ideas, anchor charts, science experiments, math ideas, tasty recipes for my wife to try (I burn everything I touch), laughter, and sometimes, things that make me go, hmmmm... AND, I just want to share with you some amazing Pinterest Boards (collections from myself and others) that you just might want to follow or "pin" from! BUT, first things first-
