Pinterest in the Classroom

     Wedding dresses, recipes for the best chocolate cake and crafts for all ages - you've guessed it right! Pinterest is the best site to use when gathering ideas for your next project. In the classroom, it can specifically guide your mind to finding the perfect assignment for your students. In this post, I will show you exactly how I used this site in order to create a lesson for students in the second grade.
     I first found a Common Core standard that suited my intended age group (K-5) - found on the assignment sheet. I then searched for ten 'pins' that applied to my standard. Next, I searched for ten additional pins on the Internet. After finding 20 'pins' total, I created my own student project. In the pictures shown below, you will see the step-by-step process, as well as pictures.

On the front, the students are to write the title of the flip chart.

Next, they are to color the coins that match their song.

After coloring, they write the words from the Coin Song that match their coins.

Similar to the Penny and Nickel, the students copy the rest of the song and attach their coins.

 Next, they attach their word problems.
 Students will then need to solve their problems.

Next, the students finish their problems. 

Lastly, the students write their name on their flip chart.

     In this project, I learned how to incorporate different uses of technology into one project. I can later use this skill in the classroom and help my students do the same.
