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.
Have you ran out of room to display student's work? Here is an idea.What can you do with duct tape and ziploc? Well you can do a giant quilt to display student's work. You can do it horizontally or veritically. Its your choice. Some of us don't have alot of wall space and this resolves the problem. I saw this on a workshop early in the year. I saw this picture and wanted to share a great idea. The duct tape can be as fancy as you want. I saw so many cute duct tape in Staples. It was suggest in the workshop to use the Wal Mart ziploc brand because the top of the ziploc aren't the same size. The higher part goes to the back. I love it and plan to do this.
