New Grade, New Blog

Hey y'all! You may know me from my first teaching blog, Life in First Grade. Since I'm changing from first grade to fifth grade, I thought it only fitting to start a brand new blog, devoted entirely to upper elementary ideas. I am so excited about teaching fifth grade and I can't wait to share ideas with all of y'all. Since summer has just begun for me, I haven't gotten started on designing my classroom, but I did have my painter come and paint the room. Here are the before and after pictures. I'm in love!

  1. I love the yellow paint color! I am jealous that you are allowed to paint your classroom, once ours are painted they stay that way until the walls come crumbling down. :)

  4. Quick question...how did you get Google friend connect (followers) on your dot com site? I've been trying to add that part to my new blog (not on blogger) and I can't figure it out!! :(

    1. You have to go into the layout section and click "add a gadget"....and then I think it's on the second page or the more page...I can't remember. If you still have trouble finding it, let me know and I'll see if I can look it up for you :) I had to hunt for it though!

  8. Awesome! I stumbled upon your first grade blog a few times but upper elementary and middle school is where I'm at. Can't wait to hear about the switch for you :) P.S. the classroom looks great so far!
