A Belated Thank You to My Fellow Traders...

Please forgive my tardiness!  I posted a while back about the progress of our Artist Trading Card project, with the intentions of publicly listing and thanking all the schools who participated.  I got a little sidetracked, but better late than never!
This ATC trade ended up being one of the highlights of the year.  My 3rd and 4th graders traded with 6 different schools, from 3 other states and 3 other countries. We looked at websites from the various schools and cities, and shared our information with all of them. It was fun to see all the mascots, favorite places, and activities other students enjoy. THANK YOU so much to the following art teachers and students for making this happen:
Anna Pietrolungo, Melbourne Australia, Imagine Explore Create - amazing Egyptian themed cards
Sylvia Marshall, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada - "Lines Blowing in the Wind " theme, using technology!
Angela Harris, Tulsa Oklahoma - Fall trees theme
Becca Witherow, Crossville TN - Still life/Fall theme
Esther Vlaar, The Netherlands - Op Art illusion theme 
Katie Morris, Topeka, Kansas - Adventures of an Art Teacher - Fall Sunflower theme from the Sunflower state
