Pinterest organization!

It has been a week since I've posted. Things have been crazy... Life has gotten very busy and I haven't had time to post! But now that I have a moment to myself, I thought that I would sit down and blog about what has been going on. 

As I said, I've been super busy with the holiday weekend, my hubby's birthday, my sons birthday and all that other life stuff that happens! So, although I do have plans and have started a few new tpt items, it will be a little bit before anything is posted. But please keep checking back!

One project I have made time for during my sons little afternoon naps is a Pinterest cleanup! Just like the junk I have hanging around in my house that I need to clean up and organize, Pinterest gets a little messy! So I'm doing a bit of fall clean up of my Pinterest page and boards. There are so many wonderful ideas that I have pinned from other teachers, but since I'm addicted and pin so often, I tend to forget about them and just pin more stuff. So, I started off with my number sense board today. I broke it up into the 5 number sense units that I teach: quantity, counting, addition and subtraction, representations (fractions and decimals) and multiplication and division. My goal now is to write the learning goals that I have for each unit under the title of the board and corresponding grade 3 or 4 math expectation. In each individual pin, I hope to write whether it is a getting started activity, working on it, or if it could help with reflect and connect. I also plan on writing what expectation it would help me teach. I plant then to change my other math boards to follow this organization.

  1. Good for you! I was just reading last night that it's good to narrow your board topics. Apparently pinterest followers prefer that :) I need to organize, too!
