Raggedy Ann & Andy Teacher Sign (Revisited)

August 15th 2012
This sign is so cute. So to get us all ready for school which is coming up soon, I decided to put all the pictures on one post. Last time each letter was scattered over several posts.

Here is the story: I was assigned to co-teach in second grade with this spunky, fun and enthusiastic teacher. All the boys love her because she knows how to talk to a “little man.” And all the girls love her because she is some fashionista!! I learned a lot by watching how she runs her class and holds high expectations for the kids, we should all be so lucky to have our kids in a class like hers.

Anyhow, her class is dotted everywhere with Raggedy Ann and Andy dolls, blocks, lamps, signs. So of course, since my mind is always reeling… I thought of making a sign for her with her name. Then as I was mulling it over, the R’s in her name suddenly formed themselves as these little rag dolls in my head. Here is how it all turned out, and how the rag dolls materialized.

A is for chalkboard

O is for Apple

Gingham and ribbon letter

M is for crayon

S is for Schoolhouse
N is for Notebook Paper

Base letters for Raggedy Ann & Andy

Rag doll head materials

    I would love one of these that say Mrs. Roman

    Can I please order one? This will be my last name after I’m married. I also love Raggedy Ann and Andy. They were my favorite dolls as a child. I still have the miniatures.
