I'm not 100% sure why I'm "nesting" right now... maybe it's because the holidays are coming up. There's something about a growing to-do list that makes me want to get organized. This happens every year and even though I'm pretty organized to begin with (and have better things to do with my time), I still sucker myself into thinking my stuff could always be tidier.
How boring is that?
But my math Pinterest board was driving me crazy!
When I was a Pinterest newbie, I started my math board with about seven pins. Now that there are more than 200 pins on that board, I can't find anything. Well, not quickly I mean. Yesterday, I was looking for a pin I knew I had... a cute bunch of kids who made a clock out of a hula hoop. So I'm scrolling, scrolling, scrolling (sounds like a song) until I finally find it on the bottom of the board.
That is the opposite of organized.
What's a girl to do? Well, if she's a little OCD (like me), she reorganizes. And that's exactly what I did... instead of doing something more important on my for-real to-do list. If you follow my math Pinterest board and have hated it as much as I did, you'll be happy to know it looks a little more like sensible files now.
The board that started it all is still there (upper left), but now there are boards specifically for:
• number concepts
• terrific ten
• addition and subtraction
• the hundreds chart (or 120 chart)
• place value
• graphs and data
• time and money
Next up (and also NOT on my for-real to-do list)? My science board! :)
