I passed the TExES PPR!

I am so excited to share some news with you! :-)
I PASSED THE PPR!
I was sweating this exam and so worried I was going to miss it by one point or something crazy! I didn't! I made a 275 :-)  I'm pretty proud! Now onto the spec. Ed exam.

Coptic bound card book


I hope everyone has enjoyed their spring break! Mine has been going well (trying to) study for the PPR exam I have coming up on the 23rd.  I thought I would share something I made on my days off.  I have had all of my cards displayed, but was running out of room-so I decided to put them in a book.  I drew my inspiration from Pinterest where I found a refresher course on Coptic book binding from making mini scrapbooks.com.

From there I compiled my cards and put them in a book.  :) This would be great for all the cards you get during holidays and teacher appreciation week! The kids could also do a simple version for their valentines cards!
