Pinterest Writing Prompts


  When I first started using Pinterest last summer I didn't quite "get" the fascination of it. OK...so it's a bunch of pictures. Now what? But the more I started pinning images and organizing them on different boards, I realized this simple concept is genius...and addicting! I use sqworl.com as a visual bookmarking site, but Pinterest is so much more. You get a rolling screen of pins from your followers. You can share them on Twitter and Facebook. You can easily repin to your boards. You can comment if you'd like, but interaction isn't necessary.
  And it can be used in education. I've organized boards of images that I wanted to share with my students. Most recently, I've followed my fellow teachers who have created writing-prompt pins. Share one of these with your students each day, each week, once a month...whatever. Or, allow them the choice to pick out which picture prompt they wish to write about. Join the linky party link-up at The Diary of a Not So Wimpy Teacher's blog.
  Here's a great collaborative pin-board that Selina Smith from Classroom Magic and Kathy Wainwright from The Diary of a Not So Wimpy Teacher started with writing prompts: Writing Picture Prompts
  And here's a couple of mine you can add if you have created your own writing-prompt pinboard (click on the images to view larger size):

WRITING PROMPT: Write about what you think is going on in this photograph. 
Why is the boy near the building? What are the objects in the air? 
Are they coming toward him or moving away? What makes you think so? 
What will happen next? Why?

  Are you using Pinterest? Do you use it for school? Share your links in the comment section below. You can follow me here: http://pinterest.com/mrsorman  I have several Hunger Games themed boards, including my newest one: Hunger Games Freebies Check out all the free lessons!

Thanks to Kathy & Selina for starting both the collaborative board 
AND the link-up party!

    1. Thank you! I wasn't going to add it because I didn't know if it would be appropriate, but when I saw the Katniss/Prim reaping activity on yours (which I love!), I decided to add it. :) Thanks for doing all this - it's such a great idea.
