I am Homeful

My Turtle Shell

Supplies Needed: String backpacks, Pre-cut fabric, Fabric letters, Iron

  1. Allow each Womple to select a backpack and use the provided materials to create a design of their choosing.

  2. One at a time, iron on the materials. While a Kaleider is ironing, instruct the Womples to decorate their bags using other materials.

  3. Remind the Womples of the turtle in the story and his shell on his back. This backpack can be like our turtle shells! We can put things in it that make us feel at home wherever we are. “You are homeful because you can be at home wherever you are!”

  4. Place the Turtle Home Sheet inside the backpack.

  5. Instruct Womples to leave their backpacks in the class for tomorrow.
