So, I have started a blog! I am very excited but don't really have a clue as to what I am doing! My plan is to help teachers who work with bilingual/dual language/ELL populations and have a hard time finding materials and resources to use in thier classrooms. I will, as long as I can figure out how, add things that I have used or plan to use in my classroom that I have created.
I also plan to share this blog with my upcoming class parents to keep them informed as to what is going on in the classroom.
I don't go back until September but I have already thought about my classroom. It is hard to make a picture in my head of what I want it to look like for the upcoming year because this is my first year in the building. I have taught in the district before but in a different building. Due to budget cuts, I have been excessed from 3 different and diverse districts. I have been both a bilingual and a dual language teacher. I love what I do!
So, for my first official blog, I figured that I would offer some cool and interesting finds I have found at local stores to prepare for the upcoming year!
FYI-I have also found a lot of great ideas on PINTEREST-if you are not part of this, join ASAP! I can't wait to try out some of the great ideas!!
For those of you who work with Spanish speaking students, I found amazing Spanish stickers and bookmarks to use in your classroom in the $1 bins at Target!!!! I was sooo happy because in the past, I have had to spend almost $4 for a pack of 50!
For those of you that are back in the classrooms already, working and getting it ready, good luck and for those who still have more than a month of vacation time, enjoy!!
