Pinterest Collaborative Boards

It's about time, teachers, to join some collaborative boards on Pinterest!

I have 12 collaborative boards.  You are invited to join any/all of them.  Who doesn't love to collaborate!?!

It's as easy as 1-2-3..
1.  Follow the board(s) or me on Pinterest.
2. Send me your Pinterest ID along with the name of the board(s) you are interested in joining.
3. Wait patiently to receive your invitation(s).

The boards have no pin limits. There are no rules. I just ask that you only post pins pertinent to that board's subject. Inappropriate or off-subject pins will be removed. 

Click on the icon for each board to be taken directly to it.

Kick Off Critical Thinking

It's about time, teachers to kick off your students' critical thinking!


Critical thinking skills are a crucial part of any child's education.  To get your students off on the right foot, try these HINK PINKS & HINKY PINKIES - Foot Edition.

If you have never tried HINK PINKS, et al., you are in for a real treat. These riddles are wonderful for developing vocabulary, synonyms, grammar, and rimes; all worthwhile pursuits. But, even better, HINK PINKS, et al. require your students to analyze data, evaluate their conclusions, and create rhyming word pairs as answers. (Bloom would be so proud!) The very best part, however, is that your kiddos will love them. My students literally beg for more HINK PINKS. I love watching the gears move in their brains. You will, too.


Never give up.  Great things take time.
