My name is Melissa. I am a first grade teacher. I have been teaching for five years in dual language immersion district.About 80% of our students are native Spanish speakers, and receive literacy instruction in Spanish. All of my students work together in English and Spanish with the goal of being bilingual, biliterate, and bicultural. I created this blog to help all bilingual teachers. As a bilingual teacher we don't have many resources available. Most of it we have to translate or is teacher made. I found that blogging is an excellent resources for sharing ideas.
This February I attended a workshop with The Bag Ladies. They have a great ideas. One of the ones they used was reusing the toilet paper rolls. What you do is smashed them and cut them in half and create a little book. This is how it suppose to look.
