Cool Homeschooling Tool: Pinterest

Cool Homeschooling Tool: Pinterest 

Have you tried Pinterest yet? It's a wonderful homeschooling tool for you and your kids to use to visually bookmark and display a collage of you favorite things. I love it for saving craft and science projects I'd like to do with the Geekling. It's a virtual corkboard and a fun way to make a reading list, inventory of your books the kids can scroll through, favorite websites or articles, great art you'd like to share, favorite blogs, and especially beautiful pictures of science and nature that inspire you! You can also use it as a Wishlist, Shopping List, or as a way to share that secular homeschool curriculum you've worked hard all summer to put together!

When I finally get the time, I'm planning to pin pictures (links) to the homeschool curriculum we are using so it's easy to share links with other secular homeschoolers. I'll also be using it to pin interesting curricula, science experiments, concepts to study, and field trips we'd like to take so that homeschool lesson planning becomes a bit easier.

Here is my Pinboard of favorite books.

If you'd like to follow me on Pinterest, just search for StephSchiff. I look forward to seeing all of the great boards my fellow geeks and homeschoolers create, please let me know in the comments if you're on Pinterest and what your screen name is so I can follow you!
