Cyber Monday Feb 6th 2012

So every Monday I meet with my elementary teachers and I share 5-10 resources with them that I have found or we talk about possible ideas they want to implement. I figured I would do a quick blog post recording these so they can go back and see what we went over in case they miss it.

Today we talked about Pinterest and did a brief overview of how it can be used see my previous article here.

I also showed my teachers @ShellTerrell ‘s Pinterest  pinboard.

 

With the weather in Ohio forcing recess inside I shared some classroom game sites that they could use:

We than talked about history pin and came up with different ways to use it in the classroom. You can check out history pin here.
