Since I've started blogging I've noticed that my Pinterest habits have changed. Blog reading has become my new Pinterest. I do still visit Pinterest to browse from time to time, but I seem to do most of my pinning from blog posts I'm reading.
Speaking of that, the first pin I'm linking up today is from the fabulous Amy at Eclectic Educating.
This great idea is a reusable graphic organizer of sorts. Students use sticky notes to add ideas to the organizer and move their ideas around as well. I think the misconceptions piece of this organizer is possibly my favorite because so many times kids do have misconceptions about a topic and this allows them to move their thoughts from what they know to a misconception.
These folders are definitely on my list for the summer. I'm thinking of even starting out with just a few for small group use to begin with and then go from there. I like the simplicity of these folders and think they would be great to pull out in a pinch and they're reusable!
Next up is the personal word wall. Does anyone else use these?
Confession time: I have had a word wall in my classroom because I've read that I should have one and no matter what kind of strategy I use I just can't seem to get my students to utilize it like I want them to. I'm hoping creating an individual word wall will help motivate them to use it more.
What great ideas have you been pinning lately? Head on over and link up to join in the fun!
