Pinterest Tips

Who doesn’t love Pinterest?!? I wanted to share a few Pinterest tips.
1. Finding pins from specific places – Did you know that you can find all the pins from the blog you love?  I love all of the charts that Babbling Abby at The Inspired Apple and by using a certain to the web address, I was able to pull up all of the pins that have been made from her site at once.  So much easier than going through the webpage.  Here is the address to see what has been pinned from my blog.
Here is the generic address: THE ADDRESS HERE
2. Printing a thumbnail page – Did you know you can see all of your pins at once if you print them?  I just printed all of my teaching pins so I can refer to them off the computer.  This is great for recreating an idea.  I am planning to rearrange my pins to create a board with all anchor charts – imagine, all anchor charts on a few pages. 
Can you imagine to potential of organizing your planning?  I think I am going to start taking a picture of the books, charts, and activities I do around certain topics so that I can see everything at a glance rather than going through plans and boxes and files.  I It suits my learning style so much more!
On a side note, I have mentioned that I really like to keep my blog separate from all of my personal stuff, but I found it tough to have a separate Pinterest page because I don’t want to switch between pages when I have a pin. I also have over 100 followers on my teacher board through my personal account.  Not sure what I am going to do yet, but I am feeling like my teaching stuff needs its own home.  I just don’t want to spend all the time moving it…


  1. Thanks for the Pinterest info! I had no idea that was possible. Aren't you a smartie :) I'm right there with you on the school/personal Pinterest thing. I'll probably keep it together because I'm too lazy to move it :)

  2. Haha! Not so much. I read the address code somewhere and it worked. The printing thing was one of those..."hey this really works" moments. Hope it is helpful!
