I started to create an "Inference" pin board on Pinterest recently when I came across a board by
I repined her pins and started adding others to the collection as well!
I couldn't figure out how I could use these pins in my classroom since Pinterest is blocked in my school. (Is it just me or do schools block everything that could be potentially useful besides the boring educational websites?)
Then I realized that I could turn my pin board into a PDF file and show it on my promethean board or print a class set and have students make their inferences on separate sheets of paper!
In case you do not know how to do this, here are some easy steps!
Step one: Pull up your pin board and scroll to the bottom to make sure all the pins have loaded
Step two: Click "File" and "Print" in your browser window
Step three: When the dialogue box comes up select "PDF" and "Save as a PDF"
Step four: Name it something and save it on your computer somewhere safe!
Step Five: Locate and open your PDF and feel a sense of accomplishment.
The only downside is that sometimes the captions run off on to the next page and I am unsure of how to fix this issue!
