To my new friends in Room 7
My name is Shellman. I am a land turtle. I love to eat lettuce, cucumbers, and watermelon. I live at Mrs. Siano's house right now, but will be moving into Room 7 once school starts. Mrs. Siano isn't sure how old I am. Maybe we can come up with a date for my birthday and have a celebration in class.
I do love to go for walks on Mrs. Siano's front lawn. Sometimes I play hide and go seek and hide in the bushes on her. Don't worry, she always finds me. I can't wait for you to read to me and share your day with me. Just remember not to tap on my aquarium. It scares me. See all of you very soon.
