April Pick 3 Pinterest Party!



Tonight I am linking up with PAWsitively Teaching and the Inspired Owl's Corner for this month's Pick 3 Pinterest linky party.  Shockingly, this is the first time I am joining any Pinterest related linky...considering I am literally obsessed with Pinterest (swoon).  Soooo, without further adieu, here are my top 3 Pinterest finds that I have my eye on this month. =]



 Create 'badges' for different genres...kids can earn a badge when they read in that genre or reach a goal in that genre. Neat idea.

This little gem comes from Liquid Literacy.  Reading is an area of particular difficulty for my special learners...with many students reading 3-4 grades below where they should. We have made tremendous improvements this year.  We have gone from class-wide groans and tantrums over reading...to my students actually asking to do a group read aloud (a huge thanks is owed to R.J. Palacio for writing Wonder and Lisa Graff for writing Absolutely Almost).  I am so giddy over our success...and I just want to keep it going.  My next goal is to get my students more familiar with different types of genres and I love this idea about creating badges for the students to earn.  My guys are all about video games 24/7 and I think creating some type of points or reward system they can earn will really work well.  My wheels are spinning...



Something to think about.....

The quote above is one I found on Pinterest, and it really hit home for me.  Before we can begin to tackle academics...we must first and foremost learn who our students are as people.  I loved this quote and what it stood for.  I have it printed and ready to store in my top desk drawer.



Some great tools.  I'm just discovering how cool Symbaloo is!

Last but not least, I am loving this blog post from The Polka Dot Apple.  Check out her post for incorporating these 5 tech tools in your classroom.  I am particularly interested in Kerpoof and LiveBinders.

To check out more of my pins, follow me on Pinterest. Have some interesting pins you want to incorporate into your classroom?  Be sure to join this linky to share your ideas and read what others are planning to use in their classrooms.

Happy Pinning,
