I hope to save you tons of time by making this selection of 7 Pinterest boards for French teachers.
Whether you’ve just gotten started on Pinterest or not, whether you’re a new teacher or a veteran one, you’ll enjoy these boards if you teach French.
Of course, this is my personal selection, so it’s highly subjective. I also have to mention that I belong to the two collaborative boards listed below, but I’d still think they were cool even if I weren’t a member. Let me know in the comments which amazing French boards you follow.
7 Pinterest Boards for French Teachers
Below, I’ll list the links to the boards in no specific order. Click on the titles to be redirected. I’ll also list the number of followers each board has (as of June 2016), whether it’s collaborative or not, and a quick description of each.
Oh, and after the list of Pinterest boards, there’s a little spring surprise for you!
1. French Immersion Teacher Ideas by Shannon Wiebe
# of followers: 5,247
Description: this board was created by Shannon Wiebe, a.k.a. Madame Belle Feuille, and it’s full of great pins: blog posts about teaching French and about classroom management, links to quality French resources (free and paid), and much more. What makes it good is that Madame Belle Feuille is the one doing the pinning and, in case you don’t know her, she’s a French Immersion teacher herself, so she has an eye for what works in the classroom.
2. Cahiers Interactifs by Profs et Soeurs
# of followers: 3,175
Description: if you’d like to learn more about interactive notebooks, that’s the board for you. I actually think you should follow all boards by Profs et Soeurs because the selection is amazing! Laudalina and her sister, the brains behind Profs et Soeurs, are highly selective – only the best things get pinned. You will find valid links, beautiful and clear images, and high-quality resources.
3. French by Liz Carlson
# of followers: 125,116
Description: Yes, you’ve read that right – 125,116 followers! Liz Carlson is a 4th grade teacher (or should I say grade 4?) in Alberta. She has tons of boards about several topics. This is only one of the many French boards she has.
4. French for Kids by Learn French Lab
# of followers: 3,682
Description: Annette Gilleron, the creator of Learn French Lab, has put together a fun and cute French Pinterest board. As the name suggests, the pins are geared towards children’s education. Most of the collaborators are teachers themselves, so that’s definitely a plus!
5. French Learning by Language Comics
# of followers: 23,259
Description: created by Language Comics, this is not a collaborative board for the faint of heart to follow. It moves fast, with more than 5,000 collaborators doing the pinning. It does get a bit repetitive sometimes, but you can still find true gems there, so it’s definitely worth following.
6. Best French Teaching Ideas by Teaching FSL
# of followers: 4,577
Description: Madame Aiello, from Teaching FSL, has carefully curated this board. It has been clearly created by a teacher with other teachers in mind.
7. Ideas for Teaching French by Lucy S. (that’s me!)
# of followers: 12,536
Description: You will find carefully-curated items on this board because I spend a LOT of time on Pinterest and this is the board where I collect THE BEST French-related pins I find.
I hope you have found at least a couple of new Pinterest boards for French teachers!
