Awesome website and You know School is Back n' Sesh when...

It's Friday!  You don't even know how great tonight is!  I know you, you are asking yourself why I am posting at 9:30 on a Friday night.  Well, I'm watching the Olympics in my pajamas, wrapped up in a blanket (love that it's only 65 degrees right now!), and hanging with my dogs.  The hubs is camping with his buddies getting ready for a Warrior Dash tomorrow.  This is heaven!  I have officially been back to school for two weeks, and students start on Wednesday, so I am taking a breather tonight.


Awesome Website
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!
I know school is Back n' Sesh because...my lunch consists of a PBJ, yogurt, and Dr. Pepper!  No more fast food for me!  I also know school is back n' sesh because my dishwasher is full of Glad plastic containers again.

  
So what should you do?
