I think they turned out super good and can't wait to hang them up in the hallway next week. Their research was focused to a specific species of sea turtle. For this they drew out of a bucket. We included Kemps Ridley, Loggerhead, Hawksbill, Green Sea Turtle, and Leatherback. They had to research: FACTS, NESTING HABITS, and THREATS to that species.
Each of those is a flap with their info. under the flap.
We've been reading a Reader's Theatre Called Emerald's Eggs (from Harcourt) and they love it. We have also watched a few video clips about sea turtles and why they are endangered. Last year I adopted a Sea Turtle named Hope for my class. I am looking into doing the same thing this year:) It really connects the kids to the environment and opens their eyes to the fact that we play a big part in helping (or hurting) the survival of these sweet creatures.
And now, for the good news......drum roll please.........My Donors Choose project was fully funded yesterday!!!!!!! I am so stinkin excited and so grateful I can't even tell you!! We are getting a color Nook and case!!!! My kiddos are so excited. It's like Christmas in my room and we haven't even gotten it yet!!

I want to do some fun Pinterest projects this weekend, have a ton of papers to get graded and entered....our 1st quarter ended today....where does the time go????? Hoping to spend some time in the garden too for some much needed relaxation:) Happy Weekend bloggy buds!!
