Pinterest!

3/17/2012

 
So Pinterest has been on my radar for a few months, but I hadn't taken the time to play around with it until this morning.  And now...two hours later...I might still be in bed, but I do have two pinboards under my belt:

One for my "Current Anthro Obsessions"
...and a second called "Books Worth Teaching" - the books that are part of my curriculum this year
It's fun stuff...potentially addicting.  But with some nice classroom applications.  Here are my ideas so far:

* A pinboard of a story's setting (with accompanying captions - maybe quotes from the text to accompany the images)
* A pinboard that documents a character's personality, interests, values, etc
* A unit planning tool to pin different texts, quotes, and artworks all centered on a shared theme


I am wondering: Is there a simpler way to embed my pinboards into my blog?  I ended up printscreening,cropping the screen down to just the image I wanted, saving and uploading it, and then making it a link.  I know there must be a simpler way - I just don't know how....
