#5 Pinterest Vocabulary Board Activity

I love Pinterest, as I’m sure many of you and your students do. Since kids are browsing favorite Pinterest ideas anyway, ask them to create a specific Pinterest vocabulary board that links recipes, tips, clothes, quotes, and so on, to vocabulary words. What a great visual way to enhance vocabulary knowledge! If you don't want your students on Pinterest, you can download the summer worksheet for students to create their boards with clipart and drawings.
