Every once in a while, a new technological tool for educators comes along that’s just, well… revolutionary. For me, Pinterest is one of those powerful and amazing tools. I’m a visual person and if I can see a photo or image of a really great idea, I feel like I truly understand. Watching at my Pinterest feed each day fill up with great classroom management tips, project ideas, and seasonal activities has helped and motivated me bring so much more creativity and innovation into my own classroom.
The wonderful people at Pinterest have seen how educators have responded to their site and they have teamed up with many of your favorite Edu-Bloggers (or should I say Edu-Pinners?) to bring you Teachers on Pinterest. Pinterest has created a set of boards just for teachers that are jam-packed with classroom ideas. There are specific grade level boards for grades Pre-K-6, plus additional boards for education blogs, classroom decor, management and more!
Right now all I can think about is setting up my classroom to prepare for a new school year. Thankfully, Pinterest has provided endless inspiration! I just LOVE all of these ideas!
Use lanterns to enhance the classroom environment.
Cute spray painted cans for supply management.
Birthday cupcakes. Totes adorbs.
This pin inspired me to run out to Ikea and buy the same desk!
Ribbon chandelier? Um, yes please!
Perfect group shot for the last day of school!
So many beautiful colors to inspire me!
Right now I am taking all of my newly discovered inspiration with me to school so I can get my classroom ready for a new batch of Kinders. You can follow my inspiration as I pin to the Teachers on Pinterest Kindergarten board. Stop by, get great ideas, and repin!

You’re so sweet! Thank you Sarah!
Education and Pinterest are really a match made in heaven. Teachers naturally are sharing and modifying ideas to make them work for their setting. So thrilled to see that you’re teaming up with them on this project. Can’t wait to watch it grow!
Thank you Kim! It is wonderful to be a part of such a powerful resource for teachers!
Hey there! Can I join your collaborative pinboard? I teach Kinder, too! Let me know!
Pinterest limited the number of people I could invite to the board. I am keeping a list of people that request a spot (for future reference). I will add you to the list!
Could you please post a Transitional Kindergarten board? I’m in my second year of teaching TK and have lots of pins to share. Thank you. Cindy Romero
Wow very inspiring ideas and an awesome classroom!
