The other day, a friend asked asked Whitney and me what we use as a bookmarking tool. I repsonded “Pinterest” and they looked at me kind of strange. But I do. I organize my pins into boards that make sense for my needs. I’m visual, so when I’m searching for something that I need, the picture reminders are exactly help. I try to keyword all of my pins (in the comments) so that when I search Pinterest for something I’ve seen before, it’s likely to come right up. When I opened my teacher gifts board, all I had to do was scan through to find our class gift to teachers that I’d pinned a few months ago.
When it came time to brainstorm for end of the year gifts from our class to our teachers, I looked through the pins, found the one I wanted to use, clicked through to the instructions… and…
tada! We presented the teachers with their gift cards and a class book and these pretty flower arrangements! Aren’t they just perfect for a preschool teacher?
It’s also a fabulous beginning of the year gifts (if you want to give them) and an adorable gift for college grads with majors in education as well as student teacher appreciation gifts. Oh! and it’s a great gift for teacher appreciation week!
So, yay! What did you end up gifting your class teacher?
