Using Pinterest with Kerry O’Malley Cerra

Using technology is a great way to get students excited about reading and encourages them to connect with books. Author Kerry O’Malley Cerra of Just A Drop of Water has a great way to use Pinterest to engage students.

Using Pinterest Writing Activity

Pinterest is a great tool to show visually what a story is about. It’s also a great way for your visual learners to connect with a book.

  1. Create a classroom Pinterest board (can be done on a bulletin board in the room if you prefer not to have kids go online) or have students create individual boards on a book they are reading.
  2. Students add character photos, icons (such as the medal in Just a Drop of Water), the settings, and images that relate to plot and theme.
