Big News!! and a Summer Craft

I'm hired!! I'm officially going to be a fifth grade teacher this school year at a Title I school!1 I'm super duper excited for the year to come. I'll be working with English Language Learners as well so this year will be extremely interesting, but I'm excited for the challenge. If any of you have some resources for working with ELLs I would love to know all about them.

Welllll anyway, on to the crafting. One of my best friends, who is also a fifth grade teacher, and I decided to meet up every week and make some sort of craft. This last week we made something for our classroom.

This craft was really simple, but i love the outcome. I'm going to put it up somewhere in my new classroom (YAYYYYYYY). We bought the letters, painted them in a corresponding color and let them dry for a little bit. Then we traced the letters on to a piece of scrapbook paper, cut them out, and Modge Podged them on to the letters and got the above result. SUPER EASY! SUPER CHEAP! SUPER CUTE!!

Anyway that's all for now, I'm sure there will be more to post about in the upcoming weeks!
