Fabulous 5th Grade

This year is my 3rd year teaching 5th grade, so I think I finally have at least a clue of what I am doing! However, every year, I have had to change schools, grade levels, or pack up my room for painting. This year was no different, the summer daycare was in my room, yippee! This meant that I had to take anything I did not want touched by 50 kids who don't go to my school (read crazy yelling, bean bag throwing, drawing on cabinets, kids who would rather be outside). So that pretty much meant that I had to take down my whole room, and would be kicked out until 2 days before teachers had to report back. So I was able to work on a few projects at home. I went a little crazy with the vinyl lettering and labeling! I will do a how-to on that later! So here it is.... Fabulous 5th Grade!
