My blog name, Turtle Time was inspired by desire to write but I'm always a little afraid. I'm the typo queen! I suck at grammar, but I'm a great grandma. In class one day I said to my students, right! We are learning about grammar. One little darling said I have a grandma lol... The fun I have in class!
Anyway, back to, Turtle Time (I have visions of MC Hammer dancing around in his harem pants singing HAMMER TIME! That's me but I'm in my pajamas singing, TURTLE TIME.
I needed a name for my blog so that I could start participating in the Two-Writers challenges.
I imagine myself often like a turtle quickly sticking my head out, scanning my head from side to side, "Thinking is it safe??"
Hence the name, I'm that turtle sticking my head out of its shell and not only scanning but participating.
The background of my picture is the back of on my students work books and the picture of the turtle was inspired by the artist James Rizzi. I have ideas buzzing around in my head about an art lesson with my students. In the James Rizzi picture his buildings were of tall sky scraper looking buildings. In my little town our homes are one levelled homes.
The Blue #33 is my childhood home.
#179 is the first home my hubby and I owned (our passion pit lol in our childless days).
The brown #16 is our home where we raised our children from the ages of 2-14 years (Napier).
The blue #16 is our present home (on the turtle's leg is a blue heart that's our little town).
The pink #7 is my classroom. I love pink and I love my classroom.
