7 Pinterest Boards Intermediate Teachers Should Follow

Pinterest. Where would I be without Pinterest in my life as a teacher? I have found so many great learning activities, classroom organization ideas, math games, anchor charts, and teaching ideas on Pinterest that I often wonder how I survived as a teacher for 19 years without it!  Today I’m excited to share some wonderful Pinterest boards for intermediate teachers.

With that said, I have also learned to approach Pinterest with a bit of caution. I have seen many pins for some less-than-stellar learning activities, and some boards are overloaded with pins of products or ideas that really don’t relate to my job as a 5th grade classroom teacher. Let’s face it; I’m not really interested in a “Hunt for Letters” activity, even if it is fun and helpful to kindergarten teachers. I do love pins showing ideas for identifying theme in literature or multiplying fractions, simply because those are topics my fifth graders need help with. So, how do we intermediate teachers sort it out on Pinterest?

Well, we begin by following Pinterest boards that we can relate to and that will offer us the most help with topics relevant to our specific grade levels. To help you get started, here are 7 Pinterest boards intermediate teachers should follow:

Teaching to Inspire1.  Reading by Jennifer Findley | Teaching to Inspire: The title is simple; the board follows suit. Jennifer describes her board, “From reading activities and strategies for improving reading comprehension to anchor charts and reading stations, this is a collection of classroom resources and teaching ideas to help teachers plan and teach reading.” If you are looking for great reading ideas for your intermediate classroom, this board is a super place to start!

2.  Anchor Charts {Upper Elementateach mountain viewry} by Teaching with a Mountain View:  I love everything about this board. It is clean, uncluttered, and sticks to the topic of anchor charts. If you are looking for an anchor chart for your 3rd, 4th, or 5th grade classroom, this is your place! You will find helpful examples of charts for reading, math, science, social studies, and more!


bloom3.  Grades 3-6 by Rachel Lynette @ Minds in Bloom:   What I really love about this board is the variety of use-it-right-now ideas and links to thoughtful blog posts that really can help teachers. The board has plenty of pins with photos of ideas in action, rather than a clutter of commercial products. Rachel Lynette makes sure this board fulfills its purpose in giving intermediate teachers useful content! It is a collaborative board, which sometimes is synonymous with cluttered, but that is not the case here. Rachel’s boards are perfect!  

got4.  Inspiring Teaching Ideas by Got to Teach!  This board delivers great ideas for teaching, just as its title promises. Need inspiration? Click on over to this board and prepare to pin away to your heart’s content. I love that this board is also low on commercial content and high on inspiration! For example, take a look at the pin on the left. Don’t you already have an immediate idea on a great way to help your students with powers of 10? Perfect!

fourth5.  Fourth Grade Teaching Ideas by Fourth Grade Studio:  Although the title implies the board is just for fourth grade, it actually has great ideas for all intermediate levels. This board has a clean, cohesive appearance, and offers a great variety of activities and ideas to really amp up your teaching. The pins have focused, colorful photos that give pinners a clear idea of exactly what the pins are about. Love it! 

6.  Classrokellyom Ideas by Kelly Benefield:   What teacher doesn’t crave an organized, smoothly-run classroom full of brightness and fun learning. This board includes pins to help you on your way to achieving the perfect classroom! I love all the pins linked to teacher hacks and classroom tips and tricks that Kelly shares on this board. It’s like she reads my mind with her pinning choices!  


7.  Classroom Decor & Design by Shelly Rees  Itdecor‘s no secret that I am a bit obsessed with classroom decor and design. In fact, creating editable classroom decor is one of my favorite things to do! This board is solely dedicated to pins with photos and ideas for brightening and organizing your classroom space. As a teacher, you spend many hours in your classroom. Why not make it a beautiful, inviting space? This board is the perfect place to go for decor inspiration!
