February Pinterest Pick 3

For the last two weeks, I have been working on learning more about Pinterest.  I found a great course offered by Melissa at Blog Clarity called Pinning Perfect.  Anna from My Life and Kids has been moderating the course.  I’ve learned so much already! If you are a blogger and want to learn more about Pinterest and how to use it more effectively, I suggest you give the course a try.  Even if you aren't a blogger, did you know that more and more teachers are using Pinterest as a search engine to find activities for their classrooms?  Just the other day, Kristen(Ladybug’s Teacher Files) and I were discussing how it is the first place we go when we want to learn more about a strategy or method to try in our classrooms. I know there are better ways to use Pinterest, and this course is helping me learn the beauty that is Pinterest ;)
While taking this course, I “met” Ashley from Just Reed I have enjoyed learning from her, too.   I decided to join Ashley and her friends in this month’s Pinterest Pick 3 Party to tie in what I’ve learned and share some of my favorite February pins with you!

Ah, Valentine’s Day!  There are so many ways to incorporate Valentine’s activities into your classroom.  What I love about all three of the pins I’m sharing is that they take the holiday and use it to make learning fun.  Who doesn’t love learning when it's fun?
I absolutely love this building polygons activity.  The lesson teaches about polygons in a hands-on way.  The "Valentine's Day" connection is by using Valentine's Day colored straws.  You could really complete the activity any time of the year.  This is yet another reason why I love this pin!
