While Pinteresting (can I make it a verb?!) tonight, I came across this great website that I can't wait to use this year. The website is YouAreYourWords. What it does is allow you to upload or take a picture on the computer, type words into the site, and then combine them to create an image like the ones below. The one on the left is a sample from the site's gallery and the one on the right is my practice one.
My job this year will be coordinating and working with all of the EL students. Since I am new to the school, and all of these students will be working with me for the whole school year, I thought this would be a great way to get to know each other, work on familiar vocabulary, and tell about ourselves! I can't wait to put these up near my room (it's really a converted storage closet, but I'm okay with that!) with the students I serve.
School is Back in Sesh!
So what should you do?
