Pinterest...


Let me just say that I can't get enough of Pinterest!! After finally getting in to it, I find myself asking what took so long. Pinterest is absolutely the best way to bookmark wonderful finds on the web. But, the best part is: the bookmarks are saved as pictures!! It's like looking at colorful and lovely thumbnails, instead of a list of words or titles. I love that I am able to organize all of my teaching ideas. Since blogging, I am constantly looking through and saving so many teaching resources. You can invest hours searching the web and honing your craft. I sometimes felt like I was hoarding and didn't really know what I had. Then came Pinterest!! Now I can organize these ideas visually, by theme, and with a link for future reference. I have found so many things that I didn't know I was looking for!! 
If you're not on Pinterest yet...you should be!! And, if you're already on, come follow First Grade Factory! Happy sharing!! Clipart by Lettering Delights.

Isn't it crazy?! All that inspiration in one organized place!! I love it too!! Do you know if there's a way to rename a board I've already made...or break one board into two?? I'm finding I could have been more "detailed" with my pinning:) Love your blog and am a follower, would love for you to come by mine:)

@Tara: You can definitely split your board or change your pins. Just find those edit buttons to reorganize. Thanks for commenting!

Well I'm trying to pin some items but I'm having PROBLEMS!!! I created an account and I'm trying to pin items & make a board to make sure I know where items are, but it is telling me to drag the Pin(link) to my bookmark web browser and I can't find it?? I looked under View- Toolbars but I don't see bookmarks???? Any help would be a HUGE help!! :(

amosbarr11,
I'm having the same problems with the Pin(link) and I think that's why I just haven't gotten addicted to Pinterest yet because I can't Pin something easily. Any help would be appreciated.
