Wedding hair, recipes for that chicken you bought at the store, clothing you wish you had in your closet, books you want to read, hilarious memes...all reasons we use Pinterest. What if I told you that you could be using Pinterest to reach out to families of your students?
This does not have to be linked to your personal Pinterest account! By signing up for a fresh account you could make boards that could be followed by families in your classroom. Then when you get emails expressing interest in extra practice pages, websites, games, etc, you can direct them to your Pinterest page! Take mine for example: http://www.pinterest.com/hallsvilletech/ This page is made for teachers. I try to make it specific to teachers/subjects in my district. Then when I know they are working on a certain unit, I place pins that I feel would be beneficial to them, on the board pertaining to them!
Here are some examples of teacher Pinterest pages that would be for families:
I plan to share a couple of others once I get their pages sent to me. I would LOVE to help you get started on a Pinterest page of your own. I would even be willing to get some of the pinning started!
GREAT JOB, Cindy Muckerman!!
