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!
