Pin-Up Thursday

Greetings! So unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know about Pinterest! I love Pinterest!!!

You can find my pinboards here by the way. Pinterest is great for educators because there are so many great ideas out there, and Pinterest lets you find ideas and put it in an organized place. Of course it has tons more…


I’ve decided to try a new thing for Thursdays where I ask you to post a link to something interesting that you’ve found on Pinterest. It can be something quirky you’ve found for the classroom, a cool project idea, or anything else education/classroom/teacher related. I’m also testing out InLinkz so please bear with me if something isn’t working correctly. Once you find something from Pinterest, simply leave the name of the pin, the Pinterest url where you found it, and a picture of the item you want to showcase. It will be a great way to share things from Pinterest. Also, if you’d like to leave the url to your own Pinterest board in the comments, I will make sure to find you and and follow.

Here’s my link for Pin-Up Thursday. My principal at my old school introduced us to exit tickets which basically assess what your kids got out of the lesson. It helps you as a teacher see who got it and who didn’t, which helps guide any review or group work you have to do after the lesson. This pin shows what a teacher used for her ticket out of the door as she calls it. It’s a poster with a question at the top. The students use sticky notes to write their responses, and the teacher has set up a numbering system so she knows who said what. Very cool!

What would you like to pin for Pin-Up Thursday?



  1. Hey girl, hope you are doing great. Congratulations on the new baby!! I am due November 28th, what is your due date??


    1. Thanks Sarah! I'm due in October! Congrats on your new addition and thanks for pinning something today!

  2. Thanks for the comment on my blog! :) I am TRYING to follow you, but blogger is being silly, so I will keep trying. Love your idea of Pin-Up Thursday! If I was a Pinterest addict, I would link up, but seeing as how I have somehow managed to avoid it, I can't provide any insight this week. Maybe next week?? haha!
