Welcome to Our Room

My classroom theme this year is sea turtles. I have had some help from etsy creators. Here's how I started: BlossomStamps made me a custom sea turtle stamp! Now I can put a little sea friend at the top of corrected papers, and make all kinds of cool note papers, stickers, cards, etc. !

And WillyWaw silkscreened this sea turtle fabric and made this incredible tote! I bought a big one! I love it!
While on vacation, I bought a magnetic sea turtle that is now on my front board. He will make morning announcements from a conversation-bubble.
A giant fuzzy stuffed sea turtle is prepared to give a hug to anyone who's in need... and a more serious sea turtle on my computer desk is watching...!

You're the sweetest, Lori! I'll show pics when it's ready for real....the school is under renovation, so there are still some messes about...but my talking turtle on the board was a hit...so was the hugging one for the one little girl who needed it to smile!
