I’ve had a few people ask me how I made my You Are Loved banner, and it’s actually pretty easy!
Here’s how I made mine:
1.) Cut butcher paper to size. (I had to double-layer my paper since I was covering a window)
2.) Type your message in Power Point (or similar program). I wanted big letters, so I had one letter per page. I used KG Blank Space font, because it’s my favorite!
3.) Change the text fill color to white or “no fill.”
4.) In the text settings, select black as the outline color. I like a thicker outline, so I increased the weight size to about 15.
5.) Print the letters on cardstock, arranging the colors in the order you prefer.
6.) I cut each letter by hand and then taped them onto my butcher paper.
Cutting the paper to fit my window was a bit more tedious than I anticipated, but I LOVE the message and love how the sign turned out!
Ever since I can remember, I’ve been drawn to people with special needs. It makes me happy to watch my students grow and progress with all their hard work. I truly believe I was put on this planet to work with these children.
If you’ve seen my posts recently, you may be thinking, “wow, Michaela sure has been posting a lot about her projects and activities! But why?”
Well, as a special education teacher in a self-contained classroom, I know how challenging it can be for my students to access the grade-level curriculum. Resources are limited and can require hours worth of accommodations and modifications.
The intention behind my TPT store is to provide teachers with adapted teaching materials that focus on the prerequisite skills needed to master grade-level standards and provide engaging, hands-on activities that make learning exciting and appropriate.
